Oubliette for OSI

One Single Impression: Prompt 120: Oubliette

thinking from a box
coloring inside the lines
wide mouth and closed mind
the tea and tunnel vision
creates her own oubliette

A fractal.

A creative and unique take on the prompt. Lovely writing here!

Very clever observation and link to the prompt. A closed mind and tunnel vision is the antithesis to the true essence of Christian faith.Sadly too many professing Christians have no understanding of the tenets of their own religion.

The worst kind of prison.
Great job, Sue.

I wonder what she thinks about her box. Some people are comfortable that way. =)

A bit like the Matrix.

Such an oubliette might as well be way, way under ground, so much distance does it create.

Excellent post. I like Carina's comment, some people are comfortable that way.

"Build your own oubliette by conformity." I hadn't thought of things that way.
