Photo Challenge #160

Use the image as inspiration for a poem or short story.

Julian Majin

Everything was in reverse, an alternate universe if you like, as you looked down at the night lights twinkling like millions of gold dust particles on a blanket of blue.
The glossy white banks flanking the pathway gleamed in the half light like uncut diamonds.
The view was magnificent.
There was just one tiny flaw.
It would take years to reach the bottom on foot, let alone return to the top, as due to cutbacks and a lack of the necessary skilled labour, a lift or escalator had been considered way too expensive, even for the Gods.
What a pity no-one thought of Express travel by Star Light.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
