Photo Mysteries: A Writers' Game #22

Carmi's back with his weekly photo theme on Written Inc this week, so we can play our writers' game in the usual way.
Here's how it works: Carmi picks a theme for all those who participate in his photo sharing, then I pick a photo that fits his theme, add a title and a single line of flash fiction, then YOU add your own titles and single lines in the comments section -- all to fit the photo.
Here's one from earlier days so you can see how it works.
Carmi's theme this week is "the natural world."
Here's my photo:
My title for the story inspired by the photo is: Thistles
My single line:  "Mom, what are these weird plants?  They weren't here last night," Dana said, as she looked out the screen door.

Your turn!  In the comments section, add your own title and single line of a story.  You don't have to be a writer to play a game with such short fiction.  Really.   Just try it; you'll like it.


  1. Nefarious

    The weed grew wild on our island, but the visitors whispered to each other and snuck samples into their bag when they though we weren't looking.

    1. At least they didn't laugh at the Loch Ness Monster...just off shore! :)

  2. Timing

    George what were you thinking, this isn't a very nice beach to put down our blanket. George? Where are you?

  3. great shot! ... and english is ok for me :) come and visit my blog and your german will get back :)

  4. Beam me up, said one plant-like alien to the others.

    There's no intelligent life here!

  5. Title: Running Man

    This was not the view he wanted as he tripped over his laces.

    p.s. for your prize.

  6. Title: Dangerous Beauty
    It looked soft and lustrous, but one touch was all it took to send him crying back to mommy.

    (Thanks for the encouragement to get back into the photo saddle. It's been an overwhelmingly busy time around here. Kickstarting Thematic's been good for my soul.)
