Many thanks again to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for our challenge.

She was so tired.
The painting called to her, a glimpse into a past life, or maybe her future.
She stepped towards it, touched it, passed into it, became part of it.
The track went on forever, but there was no sign or sound of a train.
The water was quiet, reflecting the sky and greenery around it .
There was no wind, no bird song, no noise.
Had she finally found the peace she sought?

75 words.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! 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 now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    I’m guessing the peace will become tiresome

  2. Kalpana Solsi says:

    A very different interpretation of the photo prompt. read it twice. I feel she has found peace, at last.

  3. Iain Kelly says:

    Perhaps it’s her final journey. Nicely written Di.

  4. Kestril Trueseeker says:

    I like the idea of slipping into a painting and exploring what it’s world has to offer.

  5. It seems like she has. A lovely tale! 🙂

  6. Dale says:

    It will be lovely if that is truly what she is seeking, or if it is her final voyage. I think I’d go nuts in too much quiet.

    I sense she may have slipped into a long lost past. There are a few paintings I would like to slip into, especially those of Parisian cafes in the rain. A lovely, original idea and beautifully told.

  8. Abhijit Ray says:

    Peace when nothing moves is no peace. It is more like absence of life.

  9. Dear Di,

    There are many ways to interpret your 75 words. All of the ways lead to ‘good job.’ Well done.

    A little peace could go a very long way, seems to me.

    oh, how I wish at times that was an option..
