FFfAW Challenge-Week of July 18, 2017

WELCOME ! 124th Challenge
Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers
Week of 07-18 through 07-24-2017


This week’s photo prompt is provided by J.S. Brand

I count the steps.
Every day, they remain the same.
Worn thin by my passing,
Engraved with time, and my shame.
I count the steps,
Thirty in all, one for each year,
Robbed in his prime, I cry
But no-one is likely to hear.
I count the steps,
Never ending in their flight,
I reach the summit to find
Night is day, and day is night.
Endless days without meaning or soul,
This path will never let me forget
Going nowhere and coming back
I count the steps.
I count the steps.

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.
