Picture it and Write: Focus

by joetwo

Hi there! This is my offering for this week’s picture it and write from Ermilia’s blog herehttp://ermiliablog.wordpress.com/2013/09/01/picture-it-write-16/. Once again, the picture is not mine, I only use it for inspiration. Anyway; enjoy!


Damien felt the droplets of water push against his feet, lifting him off the ground. It was a strange sensation, one that, even after all these years, he had not really gotten used to. He had to struggle sometimes to believe that it would work. But of course; that was the whole trick, wasn’t it?

“The basic thing to remember” Damien’s old master would tell him “Is that everything in the world, the ground, the water, the clouds, are all made of the same stuff. The same basic building blocks. Once you get that through your thick skull the process of making one like the other becomes straightforward.”

Damien could feel the air flowing around him as the cloud gained speed in it’s flight through the air . He dared not open his eyes yet. He remembered his master’s words.

“Belief; not just common or garden believeing, but rock-solid, focused certainty in what you want to do is key. Once you believe undoubtedly that what you want will happen then the universe will change to accommodate you. It is a rare skill; it will take you years to learn, if ever.”

Damien let his eyes slowly open. Beneath him lay the whole city, the morning sun gradually eating away at the mists. He sat down on the cloud, it forming a seat just as he knew it would.

“Damien! When you do it, when you find the focus, when you learn everything I can teach you. Then there will be nothing you cannot accomplish. The world will be yours, my boy, and everything in it.”

Damien lay back, letting the sun bathe his face. The world was his and he wasn’t entirely sure what he was going to do next. He’d just have to think of something.
