Time for some fun (no pun intended……….. oh, all right then!)
photoprompt-29-decThey lay undetected for years.
Silent, yet watchful.
Greed, hunger, the waste of precious resources, war, annihilation of the masses, death to those considered unworthy, anyone deformed or disabled, brilliant minds scoffed and shunned for their beliefs in something different, another way, another life.
This was not what They wanted.

As Big Ben began to toll the strokes of midnight, throughout the land vibrated a distant hum, growing in volume to a crescendo, laying bare the infrastructure of modern living and poor choices.
Cables came alive and pulsed with a rhythmic beat as one.
Each famous landmark in the city began to shake and tremble, recognising The Calling.

The faces of The Tower were suddenly ablaze with light, blinding in its magnificence as it called its disciples to gather, the disconnected hypnotic strobes continuing to glow as it rose into the dark sky.
Graceful and in total unison, the others lifted effortlessly into the night.

It was Time to leave.


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. 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.
