“The ceremony is about to start.
Places everyone, but watch your step.
There is a hole in the floor.
A nasty fall could incur.”
The people shuffled about for places.
Watching carefully about them.
The rock walls held them in.
No way to spread out.
The leader was fiddling with his
Ceremonial robe and items.
Shoving started as people looked
For spots where they could see.
“Stop the shoving, plenty of room.
One need not see what I am doing.
Just find a spot, somewhere comfortable.
What was that scream?”
Sunday Photo Fiction is a weekly writing challenge where a photo is used as a prompt for a piece of fiction using around 200 words. The piece doesn’t have to centre around exactly what the photo is, it can be just used as a basis for a story. This week’s photo is a top down shot of a room in The Roman Painted House in Dover, but you can use the image in any way you feel you want to.
If you have the time, please read some of the other stories that have been written via the InLinkz page below. Remember though, the main thing is to have fun, enjoy what you write, and write what you enjoy.
