Most of us generally go through our days sliding over the surfaces of the things around us. We see the red sofa with the brown dog sleeping on it, crawling insect, the bright splash of color in a flower bed.
For this prompt choose something around you and take a very close look at it. If you want to, look through a magnifying glass or a closeup lens on a camera.

Write about what you see. Does it make you feel differently about that caterpillar to see its face? What about the intricate pattern of the fine creases in the leather of that sofa? What do you see in the heart of one of those flowers?

I think you can get the idea here. It is not an especially creative prompt but one we can go back to again and again. The close-up world can be pretty amazing. Stop and take a closer look.
I look forward to seeing your creations posted below with Mr. Linky.
