Sunday Photo Fiction – The Writing on the Wall


The writing on the wall
Sparkles brightly
A clear and constant warning
And yet
I ignore it to spend eternity
Wrapped in your smile

The writing on the wall
Keeps flashing
Warning signs in my head
And yet
I turn away
And wrap myself in our love

The writing on the wall
Remains present
Around every corner I turn
And yet
I see it less and less
As I bask in the warmth of your arms

The writing on the wall
Has changed
A declaration of peace
And so
I accept my place in your heart
And breathe you into mine

I think it is very fitting that I am starting Sunday Photo Fiction on the last prompt of the year. I’ve been following it for about a month now but have only just decided to add it into my weekly line-up. I haven’t been posting much lately, but I am ready to get back into the swing of things.

The rules are to write a story or poem with around 200 words with the photo as the prompt. My little poem is coming in at 101 words. I hope you enjoy.

Happy Sunday!

  1. You ever amaze me girl. What a beautiful poem. It is so true though when you look for the love and good towards another you can change your thoughts to beauty. Love you sweet girl!!

  2. Great story and wonderful phrase although it is actually the writings not writing on the wall, or originally the handwriting on the wall. I did a post on it when I saw the new James Bond. I like your poem and how you write. Great job.

  3. Welcome to Sunday Photo Fiction Helen. Sorry, I normally try to get to all the posts relatively early in the week.

    I like the poem of the heart, and the warnings, before the past realises it has no place in the future.

    Have a great New Year, and I look forward to seeing more of your posts 🙂
