Inspiration by photo

I saw this post by Sue Vincent at The Daily Echo today and asked her permission to use her photograph.
Hopefully you will all understand why when you’ve read my post.

When you look at me
What do you see?
Lines of beauty,
Poetic grace,
A ballerina,
A smiling face.
A pirouette,
A dancer ice skating,
A beckoning arm,
Two beasts mating.
A rearing horse
Whinnying to the skies,
A torso studded
With a thousand eyes:
A grizzly standing
Straight and true,
Claws and face
Staring back at you.
A gentle deer
Looks down from on high,
Forever watchful
Of those passing by.
This tree has life
Buried deep within
Both roots and bark
Forming Nature’s skin.
Look again, what do you see
Etched in the essence of this tree.

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.
