The Recluse

Photo Prompt courtesy Sue Vincent

I ran away to the remotest corner of the earth, it was gorgeous, spectacular, stark

For I had a secret to hide, one which was just like me- ancient, terrible, dark

But still they came looking for me, they couldn’t just leave me alone

Forgetting the simple fact that if you look at Medusa, you will turn into stone.

    Medusa’s have that effect on you don’t they…I liked your response to the image.

    A legend for a place of legends. Perfect 🙂

    As long as you wack her head off while looking at a reflection of her, you’re okay.
