fallen angel

A new introduction to Sunday Photo Fiction!



Thanks, Al, for another round of Sunday Photo Fiction! Despite the snarkiness written below, I mean no disrespect to angels nor to those who believe in them.

Rolls Royce angel

Ok, so I’m an angel hood ornament on a car of conspicuous consumption. When we angels fall, we don’t land on eider-down duvets. And, we don’t get to be some wicked version of our mortal selves.

No we’re hood ornaments. Graveyard statuary  — why do your think so many are crying! Spew water into grungy pools. Afraid of heights? Well then you will probably be one of those angels on ceiling frescoes. Have guest appearances on Dr. Who – they’re the lucky ones.

I know it sounds like I have an attitude. Well, wouldn’t you if were advance advertising on a car that is never going to have a hybrid model?

Stiff muscles, shivers, sweats, noise and air pollution! At least I’m always facing forward. James, the driver, isn’t much to look at. {word count 133}

      Good point. If so, she picked a really luxurious one. ;D

    I LOVE THIS!!! I doubt I could do the prompt justice, after reading yours. (I’d be thinking of all your best lines…)

      You could do it more than justice! Give it a go.

        We’ll see…..the temperature’s up and I had less than good-enough sleep last night, so…

    If there was such a thing as angels, then to fall and land on a Rolls Royce would not be the worst thing in the world. A very amusing take on the picture prompt.

      WordPress keeps gobbling my replies! Thank you!
      She was an environmentalist. Would have preferred a Tesla. She feels weird on a Rolls Royce

    Well that’s a fun perspective, with her attitude it’s good she landed on Rolls not Chevy . lol

      Yes, she definitely would look out of place on a Chevy. :D

    Well you have cleared up that question as to what happens to fallen angels…I see yours landed on a Rolls so that can’t be all that bad.

      Glad you now know where the fallen angels go. This particular fallen angel had been an environmentalist and an anarchist, so landing on a Rolls . . . .


I love dialogue. Do you?
