“Lady in the Mist”

Out of the morning mist
Majestic, serene and mysterious,
No-one knows her destination
Just the direction she was going.
Gliding sedately, gently
On the ripples of the water,
Not leaving a wake,
Or evidence of her passing.
As silently as she appeared,
She faded into the haze,
A phantom ghost on the river.
Was she real, or just a dream?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
