Tale weaver/ Fairy Tale 23/2/17 Beyond the Veil of Mist

Michael’s set the Tale Weaver challenge this week:

Weave a tale in which you venture beyond the veil of mist.

To most, it looks like an ordinary day shrouded in the morning mist.
To some, the mist holds a magical quality begging to be explored.
To others, it’s an omen of bad things to come.

No two trees are alike in this quiet place.
The mist can be warm and fragrant, or cold and hostile.
But the magic isn’t in the mist.
The Trees stand tall and proud in a park or garden.
Each holds the power to relieve pain, suffering and sorrow.
They see and hear all, and every once in a while, a mist will fall.
If you look closely, you will see tears.
The tears for humanity, shed by the trees.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    How beautiful. I like what you made of the pictures, your words… the idea of tears being shed by trees.
