TAKE A WORD


MIDNIGHT PINK

We have PINK as our word for inspiration this week and that reminded me of what I saw from my window recently.  (Sometimes I'm not sure you believe I'm telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.  But see ..  here is the proof.) 

I was taking the night air before closing my window and snuggling down into bed when who came by but a girl riding on a pink flamingo.  Perhaps her dress had got hitched a little too high when climbing onto the bird and she hadn't noticed and I was about to mention it when I saw she was staring intently at the moon and so I looked too.  And that's when she told me that sometimes on a pink midnight the moon can, if it wishes, morph itself into a giant vanilla ice cream and drip all over the earth!

It's possible she was telling me a tall story, but in any case I forgot to mention she was showing the whole world her stocking tops!

Thanks, Marie, for a brilliant theme.

I believe you, cos Yorkies don't tell porkies, do they Ann?
What a crazy but magnificent piece of quirkiness, now I know that the drips on my drive every morning are actually ice-cream and not left by those pesky magpies!!

I saw this yesterday but struggled to find a comment to do this masterpiece justice. Of course your story is true, this is Blogland after all. A wonderful atmosphere in the background, sky and landscape, and the curtain with the stars - that would have been enough, and then we have the central flamingo and very nice fairy-lady - yes I'm speechless with admiration.
