Thursday photo prompt – Haven – #writephoto

Please join me in Sue’s challenge this week.
It was an old farmhouse, nothing special, nothing out of the ordinary.
It was tucked away at the end of a narrow lane surrounded by sycamore trees that had shed their leaves and were stark against the fiery sky.
The victorian lantern shone a welcoming beacon to the tired and bedraggled group as they approached.
Theirs had been a long and arduous journey but thoughts of safe haven had kept them mobile. The strongest had helped the weakest, and miraculously, all fifteen had made it this far.

The porch door opened and a figure wrapped in a blanket peered out into the night.
‘Who’s there?’ he called.
His rescue mission a success, their leader made himself visible.
The old man beamed. He had known there was something special about this guy. He was smart and he’d felt a connection of spirits, rather than fear.
‘You came back!  Ah, I see you have some friends. Come in, come in! All are welcome.’
The huge black German Shepherd led his pack of laboratory labradors, collies, beagles and mixed breeds inside. They would be safe here.

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.
