Thursday photo prompt: Circle #writephoto

This is Sue’s photoprompt this week:

Full details can be found here:

It was a place where dreams and wishes came true,
In solitude you told your yearnings to the trees,
Wherein magical beings listened and granted your heart’s desire.
It was sacred and vibrant, colours of every hue,
Its beauty simply stunned and brought you to your knees,
Until carelessness destroyed all by fire.
It has recovered but its secrets are long gone,
The landscape muted, no longer strong,
No more whisperings in the still of night,
Just a copse reflected in black and white.

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.

  6. Reblogged this on pensitivity101 and commented:

    Thought I’d reblog this from two years ago.
    We once organised a treasure hunt and came across something like this in the forest which we used as one of the clues. Not as stunning as Sue’s photo though. Thoughts are with her today.
