My, this past week has just flown by!

The picture below is this week’s photo prompt and is provided by Jodi McKinney.

The day was the 29th of February, and the morning mist was visible but all was not as normal.
That day, as it peeled back from the open fields, it revealed a small hamlet of half a dozen houses. Horses were in the fields and children’s laughter echoed in the stillness.
By the time the mist had cleared, the houses, horses and children had gone.
Was it an apparition? Trick of the light? Something that once was, or something yet to be?

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.

    Ha the 29th of February, it is a day which might not be, yet it is. Interesting a worthy of a story, and you did it justice

  2. There’s a simple enough explanation, the mist ate them up. Burrrp 🙂

    May be it was a mirage?

  4. …or was it the result of something overly imbibed or unwisely taken?
