Weekend Writing Prompt #80 – Castle

Weekend Writing Prompt #80 – Castle

Old castles intrigued me. If I can travel back in the past, I will visit each and every castle in the world, not only to enjoy their grandeur and architecture but to explore what secrets lay behind those walls.

How many stories of love, kindness, brutality, cruelty, corruption, politics, power game, vendetta, murder, and goodness they have witnessed.

How dirty games their masters have played or how much their own people, relatives, and best friends have betrayed to gain power, wealth, name and fame.

Do they feel ashamed of the behavior of their masters?

How I wish they could talk.

(100 words)

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. There is certainly an air of mystery about castles and fortresses – as if souls are trapped inside trying to tell you their stories.

  2. I too am a fan of ancient architecture and would love to be privy to the stories their walls could tell.. very nice take.

  3. Many tales hide within these walls. On a quiet afternoon, you might hear the breeze sigh. But it is no breeze. Listen. What do you hear?

  4. I was clearing out some old e-mails I’d overlooked and among them found this challenge. Obviously long overdue. 🙂 but I sat down today and produced this:

    COZY CASTLE

    Out in the black a tiny spark
    Blooms into flaming flesh
    That flickers, a fiery dancer
    Amidst a slowly forming picture
    Imagined, improved, approved as
    Yes … that castle only dreamt of
    Time and effort bring it into view
    With towers, turrets and bartizans
    Crenellations atop sturdy walls
    A moat and drawbridge, portcullis
    A statement of power, of dominion
    A protection against any assault
    From the envious or less fortunate
    Fully equipped with arrow slits
    Endless ramparts, battlements
    Murder holes and oubliettes
    Till in time as will in time all
    The tide turns and with a sigh
    The sandcastle returns to sand
