Here is this week’s prompt image and my little tale, a small tribute to the often misunderstood tattoo art.

The Artist

He loved his job. Steady hand, tiny details, precise lines, colour, calligraphy.

It was art, and he didn’t care when some people disagreed.

“Damned rain!”
“I think it’s beautiful.”
“You do?”

She woke up to the sound of her favourite song. Half-awake, she sunk deeper into her pillow.
Then she jumped up. Who turned on the player?

Then path became a broken bridge.
Abyss underneath, not as scary as her illusions.

I just love this week’s image! ❤ And I wrote a tiny poem instead of a tale this time, it just appeared in that form in my head. XD

You cannot hear the flutter
And feel the wind beneath your wings
You cannot rise from the gutter
While crawling on your hands and knees
