Thursday photo prompt – Lantern #writephoto

It’s Thursday

jan-19th-lanternNeither Mother or Father were impressed.
They saw it as a flagrant display of disrespect and vanity.
‘Just because you can doesn’t mean you have to!’ Mother admonished her offspring.
‘We are leaders, not exhibitionists,’ Father added. ‘It is our duty as Guiding Lights to be uniform in tone and contrast. It confuses people otherwise. They don’t know how to react.’
‘But I’m so pretty!’ the child whined. ‘Why can’t I show my full potential?’
‘Show off you mean!’ said her sister.
‘Shut up! You’re only jealous.’
‘No, I’m not. I can do it too, I’m just not so flashy.’
‘Poppycock! Call that colour? It’s a pathetic pink tinge. Not a patch on my vibrant blue.’
‘And don’t you try it either!’ shouted their mother, nodding at the smallest lantern in the corner attempting to glow.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
