Thursday photo prompt – Obelisk #writephoto

Thanks Sue for another lovely photo for our inspiration this week.

Overseeing open seas,
Battling the elements.
Elevated from the shore,
Looking out over the centuries.
Isolated and abandoned,
Sentinels linger, once guardians of Mankind,
Kindred spirits who died eons ago.


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.
