Crimson’s Creative Challenge #29

Wacton church window

No one hears the screams in the night. Everyone is oblivious to the agony. But if you listen closely, you will hear.

The quiet scream of the wick as the candle burns, crackling in the dark night. Soon, the sunlight rises and the torture ends but merely a reprieve.

As the flames are blown out, the smoke winks at the candle.

I’ll be back, it seems to say, for you tonight. Be ready.

The candle will be ready.

Are you?

If you are interested, the prompt is linked below.

Welcome to my weekly challenge—open to all—just for FUN, FUN, FUN

Here’s how it works:

Every Wednesday I post a photo (this week it’s that one above.)
You respond with something CREATIVE

Here are some suggestions:

  • An answering photo
  • A cartoon
  • A joke
  • A caption
  • An anecdote
  • A short story (flash fiction)
  • A poem
  • A newly minted proverb, adage or saying
  • An essay
  • A song—the lyrics or the performance

You have plenty of scope and only two criteria:

  • Your creative offering is indeed yours
  • Your writing is kept to 150 words or less

If you post a link in the comments section of this post I’ll be able to find it
If you include Crimson’s Creative Challenge as a heading, WP Search will find it (theory)
If you tag it #CCC others should be able to find it by ‘Searching’ in the WP Reader (fingers crossed)

Here’s wishing you inspirational explosions. And FUN.
