Thursday photo prompt – Creature #writephoto

writephoto logoI’ve really had to think of something a little different to Halloween for my contribution!
photoprompt-27th-octoberGone in a flash, literally, of the camera.
A black ‘being’, not clear, undefined.
Were those eyes, or reflected brilliance from the light?
A tail perhaps, standing tall to warn away those who trespass,
Or smoke from a fire to warm a chilled soul?
A paw or claw, extends forward, to beckon or deter,
An illusion perhaps, the mind playing tricks.
But look left.
More eyes look out from the darkness.
This creature gold and tentacled,
Reaching down to touch white sand,
Yet afraid to let go of the rock that secures it.
To the right, a body in the shadows,
Bloated and distorted on its belly,
Edging towards the chasm.
A wailing spirit drifts above it,
And a third ghostly presence hovers
Spreadeagled in flight.
Is this the entrance to another world?
The Gates of the Underworld?
Images, thoughts, interpretation.
A cave in the dark, and drawings from Another Time.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
