“Old Crank’s Creek” in response to Crimson’s Creative Challenge #21 4/3/2019



“Yah mean that pond down the there?” he gestured

“That’s Old Cranks’s Creek. Nobody much goes there, cept a few.

They say it’s a least a hundred foot below her. I liken it’s so, cause them that’s in the know, don’t go.” He grinned

“They say, at night, there’s a strange glow comes straight up the middle. I reckon that’s true too.” He said thoughtfully

“See over yonder? Just over there? That white patch? That’s where they put ‘em.” he pointed.

“I ain’t heard it myself, but they say, when the moon’s full, there’s moanin and groanin.” he said with a glint.

“Won’t see me within hundred foot of her.” he added stroking his beard.

“No sir!”

“But I ain’t stopping yah. Why don’t yah go?” he said looking towards the pond.

“That is, if you’ve a mind ta.”  he added, and winked.

      1. Put it on the back-burner, sleep on it, forget it, dance around it. It’ll come. Or it won’t. If it doesn’t, there’s nothing there to come, just a snippet of an inkling.


      1. You are welcome and you are a natural for these challenges. Unfortunately, I can’t keep up with the challenges I once took on. But who knows, maybe one day I will find time to tackle one 🙂

    1. Thanks Hon. I just looked at the pic for a bit and it wrote itself. I changed pond to Creek. You’re so nice to say that. I’m glad you “Loved” it. 😊💜🌹 You should join in on Crimsonprose picture prompts.
