Picture It & Write! May 3, 2015 They Danced On

Scroll down to content

This week’s entry into the Picture it and Write creative writing challenge hosted by the authors of Ermiliablog. Please leave a comment below if you love it. Otherwise… see ya next week!


“How lovely” ,  they whispered in awed unison. Stepping into the old home  they’d been whisked back to days of old. Grand Manors of stately, finely dressed dancers. Caught in a timeless fantasy.

The enchantment of the home drew them in as quickly as it had so many others, overcoming reason with sights, sounds and senses for only a chosen few.

Magically melodic notes twinkled as pungent summer air floated in from the open doors. The cool summer breeze dancing with dust Fairies, the brilliant sun reflecting the glittering ball across the charming room.

“We’ll take it!” Nearly breathless with excitement at their good fortune  pressed tightly together they sashayed across the room, completely blind to the small wizened face, peering tearfully from within the dazzling gazing ball. A man. Calling. Cautioning. Once caught up himself in the romance of the room.

Blissfully unaware of the warning, they danced on.


A note from out Hostesses: “I urge people to join in, comment with your paragraph of fiction to accompany the image. It doesn’t have to follow my story or reflect the same themes. It can be a poem or in a different language (provide a translation please :) ). Anyone who wants to join in, is welcome. This photograph will be reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr and added to the Picture it & Write gallery on Facebook and Pinterest.

Please continue to write however you’re inspired, but add a tag to the beginning of your post if there’s mature content in order to keep Picture it & Write an engaging event for all of our followers.”

Happy Reading! Happy Writing! Shandra

  1. Oooh! I love the cautionary tale. We must not be too swept up in the moment to not heed warnings. Cool little tale. It sounds like the prologue to a fairytale.

    1. Thank you for reading, commenting and especially hostessing each week. Happy to be joining in with such a fun creative group of writers, again.


  2. Excellent work. It is a magical room! That sunlight dancing through the glass looks like it was tossed by another being from the other dimension as the room bends abnormally, the globe coming to life.
