Thursday photo prompt – Cracked #writephoto

Funny, I saw something like this on my walk this morning!

This evidence
Lies discarded on the pathway.
Cracked and open,
No longer whole,
It provided
Shelter and nourishment
To the creature within.
Birth is a wonder,
Even from a shell
Which may now be empty,
But was once
Full to the brim
With new life.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! 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 now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    I found this on Ani’s walk too 🙂 The dogs do get us out there to moments when we remember the beauty of life, don’t they?

  2. The empty shell integrates into the soil to form manure. Nature doesn’t waste anything. lovely poem of birth.
