Camels walking alongside the dusty road, a small market stall piled high with bright oranges, green leaves still attached. A foyer lit at night with pierced metal lanterns, like walking into a room full of stars. Candles and fresh rose petals, silver and glass and polished wood. A small room, shadowy and curtained against the heat, lantern lit with comfortable sofas, just right for a mother and small daughter to hang out in for a while. The scent of honey and orange blossom. Drums echoing in the night, a masked man playing bass guitar against coloured lights, rhythms wild and pounding. And the view from a traditional Berber tent on the beach, redolent with smoke and fresh mint tea. Magical.
I’ve been nominated by Ali Isaac to take part in the Five Photos Five Stories Challenge – I haven’t chosen a nominee as yet 🙂
The rules of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge are:
1) Post a photo each day for five consecutive days.
2) Attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or a short paragraph. It’s entirely up to the individual.
3) Nominate another blogger to carry on the challenge. Your nominee is free to accept or decline the invitation. This is fun, not a command performance!
Wonderful pic and fab words full of imagery! Magical! I love Morrocco, I’ve been twice and their mint tea is wonderful, like nothing else on earth!
Thanks Ali, I loved it there too. It was on my list of places to visit for many years and I so glad I got to make the trip – we all had a great time. I did love this tent, wish I had room for one in my back garden 🙂
