TELL THE STORY CHALLENGE: The Case of the Missing Castle Guard

First off, thank you so much, Jenna, for including me in this delightful challenge! Tell The Story Challenge is such a fun way to express a variety of talents from our dear friends here on WP …

Clouds descending upon Castle Bright

As day turns into ominous night

Screeching of creatures hide in the mist

While a fog envelops and the air it crisps

How can chaos arise in here

Where once was day and sunshine clear

Elves and fairies and trolls alike

Borrow and scamper or take to flight

Escaping in panic leaving all behind

Lest the evil that stalks become their brine

Where is the hero who guards the gate

Deterring the enemy that loves to hate

Tis more than lunch or afternoon tea

That keeps the keeper of Castle Bright free

Has he found folly and paid the cost

Leaving us to suffer in a harrowing loss

Upon whose ears will the trumpet sound

Releasing the bonds of our castle and ground

Yet even as sorrow builds its army strong

A light in the distance and above the throng

Is hope that can pierce this deepening fright

As our castle guard returns – as a marvelous knight

Now to play the Tell The Story Challenge is relatively simple, you must tag three people to participate and their role is to create a story or tale or poem or just a verse to support the image offered them as inspiration.

My three choices are:

Tao Talk

In Search of Lost Marbles

Blog of the Wolf Boy

Here is the picture for you should you decide to partake… Cheers!
