Thursday photo prompt: Fantasy #writephoto

Welcome to this week’s #writephoto prompt!

You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up, which was published earlier today.

Throughout the week, I will feature as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as time and space allows, usually in the order in which they are submitted.

All posts will be featured in the weekly round-up on Thursday 13th August, linking back to the original posts of contributors.

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, as long as it is fairly family-friendly.

Submit your link by noon (GMT) Wednesday 12th August.

Link back to this post with a pingback (Hugh has an excellent tutorial here) and/or leave a link in the comments below, to be included in the round-up. If you link to any other post, I may miss your entry when compiling the round-up.

Use the #writephoto hashtag in your title so your posts can be found.

There is no word limit and no style requirements, except that your post must take inspiration from the image and/or the prompt word given in the title of this post.

Feel free to use #writephoto logo or include the prompt photo in your post if you wish, or you may replace it with one of your own to illustrate your work.

By participating in the #writephoto challenge, please be aware that your post may be featured as a reblog on this blog and I will link to your post for the round-up each week.

Regular contributors are also welcome to come over as my guest and introduce themselves (click here for details).

Please note: As I do not share my political opinions on this blog, please do not use the challenge as a platform from which to share yours. Party political or racially offensive posts will not be reblogged.

This week’s prompt ~ Fantasy

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a green landscape of rolling hills and an island in a bay. In the foreground, pastel-painted buildings and a tall clock tower are surrounded by summer trees.

    Once, I dreamed of living
    in castle with servants
    dressing in fine silks each day
    while my prince smiled sweetly.
    Once, I dreamed of being
    compellingly beautiful,
    kings at my feet begging for
    an eternity with me.
    Reality’s colors
    pour over our fantasies
    when we feel the cold, dark, walls
    closing in around us.
    Ghosts sit on the window
    watching peasant children play
    in forests they cannot touch,
    imprisoned in their dreams.

    This reminds me of a sort of local place by me. We spent a day there in Jim Thorpe, PA
    If you go to you will see a clock tower surrounded by ‘summer trees’. 🙂
    Though it is not on a lake and is near what was and might still be a tourist passenger train.
