Another Starry Night...

Staring out of the window
resembling Van Gogh,
prisoned in this asylum
the voices-they come and go-
this starry night not hopeless
shall become her magnus opus


This is a photo by Sean McCormick, highlighted in One Shoot Photography Sunday as a photo prompt.  This link will take you there and introduce you to Sean.  You can also read some other creative works and try your pen at one of your own.  I also wrote mine in 160 characters for Monkey Man's Sunday 160.  what can you say in 160 characters including spaces?

  2. I don't know how you do the 160s and do them so well, Caty. I tried once or twice and it is just too short. Can't do it!

  13. I wanted to let you know that I've started posting my manuscript again, and I hope to continue until the entire book has been placed on my blog. This way, at least someone will get to read it.
