Ragtag Daily Prompts: Pomp, November 5, 2019

Babies 1As Princess Pirouette progressed into the ballroom, two musicians proceeded her. One played a lute, the other a flute. She wore a white satin gown, over which was draped diaphanous veils, giving her the appearance of a blissful cloud floating across an otherwise blue sky. Three paces behind her walked a tenor who sang:

Princess Pirouette! Pirouette is our princess!

Such pomp had not been seen at court in many a year. Without adornment, she wore no golden chains or diamond tiaras, but still she sparkled. All in her presence were struck dumb by her refinement and beauty.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Steep, November 5, 2019

Saint Mary'sIt took a lot of collections to pay for the church’s new steeple. With the war against the “evil doers” raging, the cost of materials and labor were quite steep. Still, where there is a will, there is a way and now the parishioners would look with pride at their place of worship.

“Protestants be damned!” Said Monseigneur Reppetti, as he cut the ribbon, ushering in a new era for the Catholic faithful.
