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 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.

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