Thursday photo prompt: Glimmer #writephoto

Sue’s given us the following picture to set our thoughts and ideas in motion.

Check out her challenge here:

Shadows rule the night,
Drifting across the sky,
Engulf the shimmering light
Without questioning why.
What has the world become
Darkness seeks to rule,
Kindness and goodness undone,
Replaced by ways so cruel.
The way of Mankind is unclear,
No-one can seem to agree
Differences always appear,
What’s to become of you and me?
The dawning of each new day,
Is a chance to put things to rights,
The warmth of the sun’s early ray,
Contrasts to the coolness of night.
Light can be seen nonetheless,
Like a beacon Hope will shine on,
How long it takes is anyone’s guess
For the shadows all to be gone.

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.
