Writing 101 – Day 7 – Butterflies and Concrete

Today’s Prompt: Write a post based on the contrast between two things — whether people, objects, emotions, places, or something else.

Today’s twist: write your post in the form of a dialogue. You can create a strong opposition between the two speakers — a lovers’ quarrel or a fierce political debate, for example. Or you could aim to highlight the difference in tone and style between the two different speakers — your call!

Sorry to whomever was trying to access this post in DRAFT MODE. I have published it for everyone to peruse and comment.

Butterflies and Concrete

A butterfly followed me this morning, I saw its fluttering shadow on the dark road I was crossing on my way home. It looked so happy and light, against the harshness of the street.

Is it the stark contrast between beauty and harshness, soft and hard , light and dark that we notice these small events in our lives? I think so.

It made me smile.
