Write or Die Wednesdays

If you missed last week's prompt, we talked about things/places/ideas/people that we find mysterious. There were many thought-provoking posts about death, religion, music, history, reincarnation, etc. Click here to check those out.

This week's prompt is the photo below. We hope it inspires you to write and to share your thoughts with us! Happy Writing!!!

The ocean is so vast. It covers most of our planet. But there's just so much we don't know about it. Technological advances have helped us tremendously in exploring previously unknown areas and depths. We have "discovered" previously unknown species. It's just amazing.

Every time I watch the Discovery Channel or Animal Planet and they show those submersibles that can explore the ocean floor, I think to myself, "That would be so cool." The ocean contains so many secrets. It's kind of mind-boggling.

And yet it's also terrifying to me. There are all kinds of creatures just lurking there in the ocean. The water is their domain and we are just visitors. It's kind of a lonely feeling. And vulnerable. But in a way, I guess it can also be beautiful. I picture myself as that diver in the photo. And just being surrounded by silence. Could you imagine? No cars, no sirens, no talking, no phones, nothing. Just the sound of your heartbeat and your thoughts. It kind of reminds me of the silence that you can "hear" when you wake up to discover freshly fallen snow outside. Everything is muffled, but in a good way. A peaceful way.

I could use some peace. Who wants to go for a swim? ;)



  1. The Little Mermaid was the first think I thought of when I saw this picture. I didn't succeed in participating this week, but I'm loving what everyone has written so far. Titanic and coral and mysterious creatures down below are definitely something that intrigues me!

  2. It terrifies me too! Just looking at the prompt photo terrifies me haha. I wish I was as brave as whomever that is in the photo.

    However, to be in a place of silence, darkness and solitude --and also a place where all of the creatures are indifferent to your presence-- sounds divine!! :)
