Writephoto 14th June: Beginnings

Details of Sue’s photoprompt can be found below

The trees leaned forwards and upwards to greet the sky.
Blues and purples enhanced the pinkness of the clouds, the fireball below just breaking the surface.
Silence was absolute, as birds and rodents were yet to awaken from their nests, humans still tucked up in their pods lining the deserted street. Blackness became mere shadows returning to light.
They had made a mistake. Darkness did not prevail here.
Historical documents were consulted, reviewed and re-evaluated.
Their species could not survive such golden rays, even for a few hours, and they would have to continue their long voyage to find another planet to accommodate them.

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.

    This took an interesting turn – one that I was certainly not expecting. I really like it!

  3. Aah then, another species maybe?
