Thursday photo prompt – Still water… #writephoto

Living on a boat, this could well be our view on a balmy evening.
How could I not take up the #writephoto challenge this week Sue!

photoprompt 26 mayThey say Still Waters run deep.
Peaceful and serene, I sit alone.
I am unable, and dare not sleep,
Lest my Love decides to come.
What secret mystery do they hold,
These Still Waters obsessing my soul,
Remembering passions now cold,
Such exquisite rapture took its toll.
Waiting, watching, hopes begin to fade
For Still Waters to claim me to rest
Into their depths, mystic made,
And steal my last earth’s breath.
Eons have passed, what’s in an Age,
I know I can never be free,
A bird trapped forever in a gilded cage
And my Love, is just a memory.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
