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 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.

    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.

    In contrast, there is always hope and this reflects it perfectly.
