No-one in the tribe had seen the like before, yet the White Man had said his magic bottle housed hundreds.
All eyes looked skyward, watching fascinated as it collected rainbows in its wake.
Some thought it a miracle, a catcher of departed souls, transportation to the next life.
Children laughed as it drifted above them, pointing fingers as it made its way towards the trees.
It changed shape on the wind, distorting the clouds but passing otherwise gently on its way.
Would this be the one to break through the barrier and beyond?
It was not to be, a sharp twig punctured the defining line, and in a blink it was gone.
Everyone looked back towards the White Man, begging him to set free another.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
