Colours - Purple

[Every woman has a story. Every story has a colour. This is just one of them.

This is a work of fiction. The characters and situations are purely imaginary, and any resemblance to people living or dead is purely coincidental and unintended.]

She pauses in front of the canvas. Something is not quite right, though she doesn’t know what. It is a perfect representation of the scene, but it doesn’t work.
A flash of insight! She blends brooding purple into the blue sky. Adds a touch of mystery to the rippling brook.
The landscape transforms from representative to inspired. You can almost make out the dragons crouching behind the menacing rocks. Strain your ears, and you can hear the knight galloping over the plain to rescue his maiden.

She stands back and smiles. If only it were as easy to transform life.

Drabble(n) -
an extremely short work of fiction exactly one hundred words in length.

What amazing colors and the writing is visual. I like the phrase, "representative to inspired."

Thanks so much, Sonia. And yes, that line is my favourite too - wrote that first, and fitted the story around it.

The picture was taken two years back in Goa - quite a tropical paradise the place is.

I'm close to 150 too. It's amazing how quickly a blog can grow. I started in March. My goal is 300 by the end of the year. :-)

Oh, and I love your Colours-Purple picture.

Thanks Mary. Will be sure to throw your name into the hat too.

And I am pretty sure you will hit 300 by the end of the year - your blog is good.
