Actress - Nataliorion

Actress – Nataliorion

As she walked towards the fog she knew that her world was about to change,

Transform, adjust.

Her character hoped every night that this would be the beginning,

The actress knew it was the end,

as she stepped carefully across the circular stone set

towards the dry ice

Lit by lime green gobos.

 She waited,

The sound technician hit his cue

The actress fell to the ground.

Every night the same.

She didn’t mind though,

The costume reminded her of the ghost lady

she used to see as a child.

Half hidden under her parasol.

Walking on silent feet towards the light.

Always towards the light.

  1. What a perfect image you wrote. The ghost lady, half hidden by the parasol, heading towards the light. Beautiful. I loved how you evoked the eeriness present in the photograph. And also wove the title of the picture into your story. 🙂 Thanks for contributing this week, Neens, to Picture it & write! 🙂
