Fifty-four words

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Picturesque.




The view was hardly picturesque but when I squinted my eyes, tipped my head on one side, rocked backwards and forwards, imagined raindrops were splashing waves, visualised a setting sun, and hummed a tune, I saw myself sailing towards an island paradise.

Then lost my balance and fell face-down into a stinking stagnant pond.

    Hahaha! I can just picture it! When visualization requires that much effort… just saying it might be too much!

    Next time try the mushrooms. The end view may be more rewarding. Fun one, Keith.

    Love your 54 words…I think I’ll try the squinting–rocking back and forth–tip my head to the side trick, see where it takes me! 🙂
