...where Pen is mightier than the sword...
Great, it sounds like the opening to a book but could equally be an ending?
That's a question you'll have to answer for yourself. I have no idea. Ha ha!
Love your description of this, as well as what you've done with the image! Great write!
The image produced the description for me... LOL
very intriguing- love the mystery of where they are going.
You have to write your own story to complete mine...
Like refugees pining for a new life...
More pleased at having it in their sights, than pining for something unobtainable, I think?
First, I love how you took the image and grew it. I didn't see an exodus before, but now coupled with your words I do. Certain aspects disappeared, like the white polka dot hats. Intriguing work! My Magpie Poem is here.
The whole point to my playing with any image, is that it changes the point of focus which the original artist chose. In that way, the result becomes part of my own interpretation, from which my poems grow.
I love the way you manipulated the picture. It looks amazing. A good photo editor is on my wish list. Your piece carries hope.
It's always the altered image that fires my imagination by creating a different take on reality...
Very intriguing! Like the enlarged details to focus on.
The whole picture was too 'busy' for my mind to cope with, but the detail 'spoke' to me...
This looks like the closing chapter of a novel about asylum seekers... we may never read the book but we do know it has a happy ending! :-)
You write the book, Sir, and you're welcome to take my ending! LOL
I liked this the journey homeward..final destination..
Your prose gives the photo an extra brilliance Jinksy :-)
A great crossing this one , Jinksy
Ah yes, your words say it true, for our hearts and soul celebrate this new beginning!
New beginnings can be exciting!
Starting over is a tough yet exciting part of life - depicted well with your words and edit!
Enjoyable and interesting take on the prompt
Love what you did to the image. This is some fine writing, too.=)
Beautifully evocative...really drew me in...
Vivid scene from a well-blurred photo!
