As the carousel moves, shades play, red as a ruby, embodying passion, love, strength, courage and leadership. Red, honoring women.
Em was the epitome of these five facets. She was successful more than her partner. Em was thrilled by her new prosperity life showed when the sun shone. How picturesque than a quiet dock to enjoy and savor this success hand in hand, side by side.
The carousel plays, again, with five new shades, from jealousy to egoism machismo and anger, violence.
It ended, painting the water red.
Now no more joined, entwined, no more warmth, only hands float.

I'd submitted this as a response to an ekphrastic prompt. Couldnt get through.
Picture by Vony Razom- It was woman in red with 5 hula loops at the edge of a bank/lake.
Never tried this form and not very sure how far you can bend.
Open to suggestions!!

Very descriptive. I've never heard that word nor heard of that style of writing, so I learned something new with this drabble.

Just enjoyed my second reading of this. Intriguing Goes to a to a very dark shade. doesn't it? As for how far you can bend this way of writing, perhaps there's no limit as everyone sees pictures differently and can maybe look at the same picture in different ways throughout their life or even through the week.

Gulp! You’ve got me scared there, Verity, in a roundabout sort of way. I need to reread and reprocess.
