Saturday Centus ~ The Dark

well Jenny has played a trick on us ... and a nasty one at that ... we have 25 words ... yes just a 25.  And the prompt is a picture.

Do not adjust your screens, that is the picture, just that wall of black... here is my take on it all ...

When I close my eyes
The world does not fade to black
It comes forward in micro splashes of light and colour
Dismantling the dark.

Have a wonderful halloween weekend!!!

Whoa! That is so true! You captured it so well in your tiny little word painting. Loved it!

This was a great Centus.

When we were first married and I couldn't sleep, my husband would always say, "Just close your eyes and stare into the darkness." But, like you, when I close my eyes I don't SEE darkness.

Which makes me feel better about the fears that inspired the Centus I wrote today. Thanks!
