FFfAW Challenge – 181st

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 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.

    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?
