Thursday photo prompt – Bleak – #writephoto

You can find details of Sue’s challenge here.

Only visible at low tide, access was treacherous now.
Some believed it to be an old maritime Look Out post and the howling winds captured the souls of the dying in bad weather.
In truth, it was a sacrificial chamber to the Sea Gods.
The Dark Mass on the horizon waited patiently, hungry for youth and blood.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
