Sunday Strange microfiction challenge 12th March 2017

No clues then Jane. It’s a lovely painting though.

On a night like this,
I am weightless and free,
You drift on the moonlight,
Oh please, wait for me!
Your pace increases,
Can’t you hear me calling?
I can’t keep up,
I feel I’m falling.
Silver stars twinkle
In this sky of rich blue,
My feet kiss the water
As I try to follow you.
Distance becomes greater
You disappear from sight,
Perhaps it’s
not time yet
For my soul to take flight.



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.

  1. It’s a lovely poem, so delicate and dreamy 🙂 Goes perfectly with the painting.

  2. Michael says:

    I think you’ve written a lovely piece in response to the image Di…well done..

    I unison with both Jane & Michael…it’s a lovely poem you had wrote…

  4. I like this. I like the way the tone shifts a little, from romantic to slightly uneasy.
