Cracked Ice #writephoto

Sue’s Photo Prompt this week for #writephoto…


“You can’t walk on water!” they all said to me…I’m getting sick of it. Whatever I want to do, they tell me I can’t do it.

What rubbish! Hadn’t they seen the stream this morning? Oh it was cold alright. So cold that the water had stopped flowing, frozen solid.

There, see.

That’s one way I can prove them wrong!

I just need to test it out, so when I get them here to be witness to my miracle, I don’t look a complete fool, slipping and sliding around the ice.

One foot on… steady! The other leaving Terra Firma and placed cautiously on the ice.

There! Done it! I am standing on water! And if I just take a few steps, I am actually walking on water, frozen or not!

It’s not easy, you know, but at least these spiked shoes have some grip on the slippery ice!

Actually this is quite easy! I bet I could even run on water too!


What was that?

As I look around, I see a crack appearing in the ice behind me, zig zagging along towards me, following the small holes my spikes had created.


Thank goodness they weren’t here for that! Lucky the stream wasn’t so deep, and it it was just my ego bruised, and my clothes wet…

Maybe I’ll just listen to them next time…

    The fine line between confidence and caution… maybe the real miracle is knowing where the knife edge is πŸ™‚

    Yep, sometimes it is better to listen… but the art is to find out when it is necessary 😁
