Choose a picture you feel able to say something about. Write a few words, a description or a story. Simple is not inadequate, disjointed is not ill-formed.

To use the "Img" button, one needs to enter the URL of the image. Alternatively, use the "Uploaad attachment" option in the second tab under this box.

Φύλλα δροσερὰ καὶ ἀράχνιον.
Τῶν δ' ἐπὶ τὰ φύλλα σταγονιδίων συμπυκνουμένων, αἱ σταγόνες καταρέουσιν. ἀκτινοβολούντων δὲ τῶν ἐπὶ τὸ ἀράχνιον τὴν νύκτα προελθόντων, μετὰ βραχὺ ἐξελεύσεται πάλιν ὁ ἀράχνης τοῦ ἀγρεύειν.

Λέγει αὐτῇ ὁ λύκος, Κοράσιον, ποῦ ὑπάγεις;
Ἀπεκρίθη αὐτῷ ἡ παῖς, ὑπάγω ἐπισκέπτεσθαι τὴν μάμμην μου.
Λέγει αὐτῇ πάλιν ὁ λύκος, τὶ φέρεις αὐτῇ;
Ἀποκαλύπτουσα κατ' ὀλίγον τὴν σπυρίδα αὐτῆς εἶπεν αὐτῷ, ἀναφέρω αὐτῇ ἄρτον καὶ γάλα νέον.
