Sunday Writing Prompt #230 “Animal Farm”

This week’s image is provided by Shirley Kite.

The rabbit sat at the edge of the forest, aware that something wasn’t quite right.
The air smelled funny, and the moon cast a bluish tinge over the landscape instead of the silvery hue it should have done.
One by one, other animals came to join it, all looking out from the trees across the lake.
Deer, badgers, squirrels, foxes, rats, voles, even slow worms, frogs and lizards all gathered together, united in their curiosity.
It was the exodus of birds overhead that raised the alarm causing them all to turn and flee.
The fire devastated much of their habitat, but loss of life was minimal as the heavenward sign had not been ignored and instinct for survival kicked in.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

  1. You always hope they receive some sort of warning. You create4d a real sense of suspense with this one

    • Thank you! We always take note when Maggie ‘alarms up’, even if she doesn’t bark. We were glad she didn’t when we were camping and on the boat, but she knew when someone ‘strange’ was walking by.
