Prince Charming's Quest

Copyright -Jennifer Pendergast

She stood in the courtyard, shivering, enveloped by the cold damp air and looked outside the portal.  A warm summer day lit up by bright sunshine.  So different from her world inside stone walled castles, towers, turrets, spiral stairways, giant halls, rich tapestries hanging from the walls, suits of armours, ruby encrusted crowns.

A world hidden behind moats, colossal drawbridge and ramparts guarded by the King’s troops.  A world attained when Charming found her through that glass slipper left behind.


And now he too was gone. I am sorry, he said,  but I was really looking for a Cinderfella.

It's got to be a fairy tale week with the photo conjuring up images of Kings, Queens  and fairy tales.  Or maybe not ;-)

  1. Dear Subroto,

    Now that turned the old fairy tale on it's proverbial ear, didn't it? You are one twisted individual. I knew there was something I liked about you. ;)

    Going to watch the video now.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
