Look at these colours! They’re as histrionic as that kid that arrived last night.  Between him and those loud teenagers, our week of peace is done for.


You know, dramatic and theatrical.

Hah! Nice use. Could you imagine a week?

The noise? No. The colours? Big time.

    • Dear Rochelle,

      I won’t lie, I boosted them – but only a smidge, believe it or not… and only for this prompt. It was insanely beautiful, naturally!
      And thank you. Glad you liked.

      Shalom and lotsa colourful hugs,

  1. Great use of the prompt, Dale, and a lovely sideways looked at colours we call “loud”. When Nature has her way with loud colours, the effect is staggering – especially for me right now since I have just had a cataract operation and the scenes of my life have changed to sharpness and vivid colour.

  2. Q

    I love the contrast you’ve provided for this spell you concocted. The brilliance of a peaceful flow on the one side of the water, and the crash, boom and scream of all that histrionics on the other side of it. And so that middle, with the placid, easy feeling of an smooth surface that your mind can swim inside of. Perfect!

    And yes, I mean, the timing of it all. In a year of not so great timing, every now and then you get luck with the stuff huh?
