Creative Writing Prompt December 19th

December 20, 2011

The colour crimson

The reflection in the mirror betrays her self-absorption,

the reflection in the mirror betrays her youthful pride.

To answer the challenge of night-time prowling,

she paints her well-trimmed face the colour crimson.

  1. Very apt, and evocative. It’s a great accomplishment to say so much in four lines.

  2. I like this! Arresting and stays with you. Crimson, for some reason, works really well.

  3. I like the first two lines especially 🙂 Good writing, has the same kind of thought behind it that I started off with for this prompt aswell 😀
