55Flash Fiction Friday

Oh India
Why when we are together do i often treat you as my favorite whore
ancient doorway candlelight
hating you a little
and when we are apart
I want you like my lover
far away
forbidden
frustrating mystery
silken flower
vibrant chaotic beauty that is my India
why is there never enough of you?
~
OK, old 55, new photo! This is one of my favorite 55s because it captured my feelings after I had been home from India for a few days. I think it's from 2006, anyway. The photograph is from Jaipur this year. I really love the expressions on the faces of the men buying apples, the old fashioned look of it all, except for the car, which looks like it doesn't belong there at all.
I hope you will all get over to each others 55's and check em out.
Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Great 55 Susie! If I ever went to India I would probably go crazy trying to figure out what to buy as far as fabric goes because of all the brilliant beautiful colors there.

Have a great weekend!

Susie,
A most excellent 55.

Lime has a question about your comment on my 55, I'm going to let you answer it before I try to comment further.

I'm glad you reposted it I hadn't seen it and I love the bright splash of colour that the woman's seri gives to the picture.

Minus the car...you have a perfect picture. Well, in my mind, it's still perfect. Great 55.
