SUNDAY PHOTO FICTION….January 10, 2016


The idea of Sunday Photo Fiction is to create a story / poem or something using around about 200 words with the photo as a guide. It doesn’t have to be centre stage in the story, I have seen some where the placement is so subtle, the writer states where it is.

This week’s photo is pretty straight forward. A tree and a hut in a field.

Dream Home

“Marcus we’ve been riding for hours!”  Shelly said.

“It’s just a few more miles.”

“Come on!  You told me that three times already.”

“Well, quit asking me every minute!”

“I see it!  It’s beautiful even in this dreary darkened day.”

“Honey, that’s not it.”

“Oh, Pooh!  It looked perfect, window shutters and a pretty white picket fence.  Why can’t it be that one?”

“Because it just isn’t.  Ours will be even better.  Aunt Zooma  was known for her dream home.”

“This is the address, and that is the mailbox, but where in the tarnation is the house?”

“Marcus, my darling, there is your Aunt Zooma’s dream home.  Don’t you recognize it?  After all, it is so much better than that one with the white picket fence!”

“It’s just a small wooden hut in the middle of a bunch of trees! ”  Marcus screamed.

“Welcome home, darling!  Your aunt has left us with a nasty little wooden hut! I can just picture our little family enjoying such a sweet and cozy home.”

“Why are you even getting out of the car?”  Shelly complained.

“Honey, take a whiff of this.”

“It smells like oil.”

“Exactly!  The ground is full of it!”
