Thursday photo prompt – Messenger #writephoto

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.

    Wow! I really loved this. I read it through a third time thinking about whether it could apply to a person, an outsider because that’s how it spoke to me and it worked well. These lines coud apply so well to the poet, philosopher, artist:
    I am often
    Alone I fly,
    A messenger
    In search of solace.
    So pleased I popped by.
