Zipped – Crimson’s Creative Challenge #62

Well, hell.  Crispina finally chose a picture that I had no matchy-matchy for!  And no, I was not going to go out with my camera searching for a similar situation.  Nope. That’s not how I roll.  So this week, for Crispina’s CCC, I am going a more classic route, if you were.  With a story of sorts.  Actually, I am doing something I thought I’d not done before but upon checking, not only did it once before but did it for THIS very challenge… go figure. So, for this challenge, a haibun.



They were such a bright and colourful couple. No, not that they were colour-matched – he preferred earth-tones to her more jewelled ones.  I mean colourful in manner.  They were funny and entertaining, each sharing their part of the story they were telling; one speaking over the other but not in a rude take-over manner. They were just so enthusiastic it bubbled out uninhibited. There was never a dull moment when these two were on a roll… They each had their roles, working in harmony without losing themselves.



They came together, just like

a perfect zipper

  1. Q,

    That is some kind of connection those two share, whoa! I mean, that she suffers his earth tones whilst being so colorful, that is lesson enough for the kids to look into the person rather than simply at them. Figure them out from under the hood, and then you can find so much more.

    Once again, you take a challenge and make it yours. Colorful, passionate and with a spirit all your own.

    Love this.

    I LOVE yours! Fitting together like a zipper sounds like a perfectly complimentary couple. 🙂 Fab image! 🙂

    (I had to look up haibun.)
    Came here from Frank’s blog. There’s something feeling almost zipped up over there. Melancholy…..
