Genre Challenge # 9 — Romance

Welcome to the new Genre Challenge!

This challenge is a bit different than everything else in that it has two rules:

Response should use the photo prompt given
Response should be in specified genre

The purpose of this challenge is to push ourselves to dip our toes in other genres than we normally write in. The form of writing is up to you.

It doesn’t have to be good!
It doesn’t have to be right!


Today’s genre: Romance

Today’s photo:

A Faded Romance

A faded sepia photograph

In a tarnished silver frame.

A bundle of letters

Tied with satin ribbon.

A lock of hair in a pendant

Hanging from a gold chain.

A rose he had given her

Pressed between the pages of an old book.

She lost him in an air crash when she was nineteen.

She cherished his memory till the day she died.
