Writing Prompt: Both Heaven And Earth

One of the things I want to do this year is put monthly writing prompts up on this site and encourage members and non-members to write and (if brave enough) share. You can post on your own site and link back here in the comments, or comment to let us know you gave it a try and did great, or even not so great.

I liked this month’s challenge so much I did it too, and like the resulting story so much I’m submitting it to the group for feedback. If you’re a member you can read it if you’d like, even if you aren’t going to the meeting. If you aren’t a member yet, but would like to be, head over to the Yahoo boards and apply.

Anyway, enough blathering, on with the prompt:

2colour eyes dogProcrastinating on Facebook I came across this picture from the ‘Humans Of New York’ page.

The caption read: “His owner told me that according to a Native American myth, dogs with different colored eyes can see both heaven and earth.

So an animal(you don’t have to go with a dog – go with what inspires you!) seeing heaven and earth, or maybe two other planes of existence. Go for it! Let us know when you’re done in the comments and, if you’re brave enough, post it on your website and link back here so we can all enjoy it – or even offer feedback if you’d like that.

I can’t wait to see what you do with it.
