The house was quiet and I felt excitement as I began to hunt for something to fill the word prompt:
I wanted something with strong contrast.
Maybe a silhouette.
Definitely something striking.
As I looked around the house I thought to myself let's see... I'm at home. At nap time. What fits...?
I look out the window and see a lonesome moth. Not exactly a striking figure but I'm easily distracted.
I change to a macro lens. I think to myself hmm, this little fellow is standing alone in the middle of winter. I begin to wax eloquent in my mind about this beautiful moth but as I glance down at my settings I'm startled by a thud on the window pane. I look up just in time to see a bird flying away, leaving my window empty.
I realize that I am the one standing alone.
