State of Mind

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Frame of Mind.”

If an amazing artist were to paint a portrait of the inside of my mind as of late, there would be dark shadowing colors depicting the swelling waters of an ocean threatened by storm.

Ominous thunder clouds looming over violent waves thrashing, while lightning streaks across the sky above those waves as they come nearer to those swelling waters that seem to struggle to calm the creature that lives beneath.

The moon that is not seen in the sky,  but casts it’s reflection on the swells is the only force that pulls the viewers attention to the calm that might be.

In the midst of this insanity a small tangerine colored dot marks the presence of a fisherman, courageous enough to be thrashed about in these waters, faith keeping him safe as he is tossed ferociously in every direction, working his way towards that glimmer of a reflection of the moon that no one else seems to see.

  1. You can feel the danger of the sea, rendered more hostile by the dark of night. All of this scene is not hopeless, but is given the condition of human fortitude in the midst of all that is mightier than man. Strong writing and I’d say you met this prompt head on with style. ;O)
