Write photo 15th March : Ahead.

Thanks Sue. I’ve taken a slightly different approach, as you can see from my title.

The way a head speaks

Hello and welcome!
You’ve found my secret and I bet you’d like to get inside my head now wouldn’t you.
For years I have watched over this valley, seen many wonderful (and not so wonderful) things, and from time to time, someone such as yourself climbs the rocks and finds the entrance.
Make yourself comfy on the rock benches within where it’s quite warm and dry. You can then see through my eyes, eyes not visible from below.
It’s beautiful, is it not? The lush green of the hillside, the heathers and the wildlife here.
Come nightfall, you can hear the owls and elusive nightingale, but perhaps it would be a little too cold for you then so you’ll have to take my word for it.
I have no body you know. Just this head-like formation, worn and shaped by time and the elements. What you see from below is my good side, a face of stratum rock but what you see from within is a different world.
From my shelter, some bore witness to the savagery of mankind, the waste of life and greed of the human race. Yes, the inside of my head provided a hiding place for many, my stone surface smoothed by endless bare feet and grazed hands, a safe haven until the danger had passed.
I have nurtured Nature in all its forms and glory. I am a part of it, always one step ahead as Sentinel, watching and listening. I hear voices in my head, in the silence you may hear them too, but the experts blame it on the wind.
Take heed, there is a new storm coming. It is up to you to pass the word, but who would believe your source? I am just cold stone.

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.

  1. Excellent take on the prompt. It really does look like a head, doesn’t it?

    I love this it takes my imagination on a flight of fantasy!

    Very talkative cold stone.

  4. Amazing that it fit so perfectly even after you misread the prompt, although I personally write only on the photo, never on the word in this particular challenge, never knew we had to incorporate both 🙂

    • I think you’ll find it’s all personal interpretation, so it doesn’t matter. This is one of the first regular challenges I took up, and I love to do them.

    I love this, Di… and you were quite right to ‘misread’ the title. This is exactly what I saw too 🙂
