100 Word Wednesday: Week 97

This week’s photo for Bikurgurl’s 100 WW challenge is by Sebastien Gabriel

An image within an image,
An outsider looking in,
Constant noise all around,
But silence contained within.
Tweak the light accordingly,
Play with the brightness too,
Proof of being where he was,
She’d never know with who.
Technology is wonderful,
It can hide deceit and lies,
Emphasise what isn’t there,
Oblivious of teary eyes.
He thought he’d got away with it,
Then in the corner clear
He saw his wife and children,
What were they doing here?
She walked across the road towards
Him standing still in place,
Then calmly standing in the rain,
She slapped him across the face.

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.
