The Colour Of Pride

Written In Response To:

Sue Vincent’s Thursday Photo Prompt:  Monochrome #writephoto – Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose.

This monochrome house

filled with a shaded lifestyle

never choosing the white Light

instead straddling between

the white and the black

firmly rooted deep in the gray and

after many years of life this way

this house, now bowing under

the weight of its pride shall

fall completely into the

black of its souls abyss for

never choosing the white Light

to shine upon the…

shaded gray of its pride.

The Haunted Wordsmith Genre Writing Challenge – April 20, 2019

The purpose of this challenge is to push ourselves to dip our toes in other genres than we normally write in. The form of writing is up to you. 

Today’s genre and image: Haunting.

Where love seemed to live

truth became reality

secrets no longer hidden


Haunting is this house

vicious crimes were committed

its soul erupted in death
