Thursday photo prompt – Swan #writephoto

Intriguing photograph this week Sue. One close to my heart as there are many swans in the vicinity of the marina.

Shimmering ghostlike on the water,
Liquid gold in her wake,
Before the hunters found her
She made her silent escape.
They weren’t interested in her beauty,
This swan with the golden breast,
Would the magic be passed to her offspring,
All these riches she laid in her nest.
Greed overruled all reason,
They sought her noon and night,
But she evaded them in the darkness,
A shadow of golden moonlight.

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.
