Thursday Photo Prompt- Poised #WritePhoto


Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt. You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up, which was published earlier today.

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a leaf-strewn flight of stone-cut steps descending into a hole in the ground. Poised to ascend…or descend… is the dark silhouette of a strange figure…


Poised for flight

Hiding here in the shadows

He waits and listens intently

Life has not been easy for him he feels

Because he wasn’t born like others

He looks different and is considered

An anomaly, an aberration to be avoided

He seeks shadows to hide in

To remain out of sight of the world

Because they make fun of him

They ridicule and torture when they see him

So he hides in shadows, poised for flight

Only he knows how their words wound him

And to him loneliness is better than hate

That is meted out to him every time

He ventures out into the open
