Rain on a grapevine leaf.

Rain on a grapevine leaf.

A Story by Icelanna
"

When a picture inspires a story.

"

She leans forward, looking over a mass of multicolour to the long drop below. The floor carpeted with others she knew, lying lifeless on the ground while she stays fixed to her home. Her root embedded as she holds on tightly, her edge curling in the wind as she admires the fall. Her tiny veins run through her surface, breathing in the fresh pine air of the new season as they trail from left to right. Her face the shade of new emerald diamonds as her face shines in the midday sun, sparking her potential to fly as the wind pushes her edges forward as she leans. Her colour is dampened with tear-drops of rain, the texture absorbing its drops as they slide down her face to her friends below, dripping a tear onto their brown faded edges.

She can see her friends below her, the ones that still live around her. They wave and whistle in the spring day weather and their colour transform from emerald to brown as the summer slides to autumn. She knows that she’ll be down there, that she’ll see her friends again but for now she lives up high, where the acorns grow and the others bloom, but secretly she awaits her adventure to fly away and to see where the wind takes her.

Was wondering how my skills of writing manage when asked to describe a random picture with no premeditation and no idea of the picture chosen for me.

what an interesting concept, and what a creative piece you've pulled from it. At first I thought it was in the perspective of a rain-drop on a leaf, so the description was a nice surprise. A lovely whimsical write.
