Friday Fictioneers is a weekly blog link-up led by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields at Addicted to Purple. The Challenge – write a one hundred word (plus or minus) story with a beginning, middle, and end inspired by the picture. The Key – make every word count.
The picture is worth a thousand words. These are another one hundred.
She threw a frayed rope towards shore
And disembarked with her First Mate.
More like jumped…
Their life raft lost to the sea long ago.
They moored the ship on hope and a prayer.

And the captain and her first mate were separated.

Subject to the furiosity and the hope
Of the wall and an eye.
When the sky fell, she was free to set sail.
But her ship sits sunken, secured by a mighty chain.
