Thursday Write Photo: Tranquil

A fabulous picture from Sue this week.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a secluded corner, with calm water reflecting the green leaves of summer .

The pollutants in the water give the surrounding foliage a mystical glow.
Who has ever heard of purple sands and violet trees with their indigo branches and orchid mauve leaves?
All the colours of purple are apparent here, the softness of tinged silver and warmth of colour hypnotic and surreal.
Anyone stumbling upon this place would lose track of time, falling victim to its beauty and sense of solitude.
Bathe or drink the water at your peril. Some say it is deadly,  yet for others it has healing properties.
No-one knows the secret of the Purple Lake and her Guardians, yet she offers Peace, Tranquility and the stillness of Time to all.


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.

    That’s an intriguing idea, Di… and I wonder how it is determined who finds healing and who poison? Perhaps we carry it with us.

  2. Oh, I love it, the intrigue of such a lake.

  3. Does the lake judge on the purity of the person’s soul? That would be a very interesting tale.

    As purple is my favourite colour, so much so that it’s the only one I ever wear aside from black, you can probably imagine that I particularly appreciate both this beautiful piece and the stunning image. I would indeed lose track of time if were to stumble across it. Thanks for creating my purple heaven!
