Here we go with our 195th challenge for Fash Fiction for Aspiring Writers.
This week’s photo prompt is provided by Jodi McKinney.
It was that half light,
Headlights, or not,
Lighting the way
Of a road long forgot.
He remembered the time
So long ago
When he left in anger
Yet with nowhere to go.
He succeeded and failed,
But had not given in,
Kept pushing and trying,
Not forgetting his kin:
Now he was back
Rich beyond compare
Returning to his roots
Knowing they’d still be there.
It was Christmas Eve,
He was coming home,
Having followed his destiny,
There was no need to roam.

In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
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.
Great poem! Interesting take on the prompt 🙂
A very nice story.
No need to roam — is a mindset that pulls us back to warmth and comfort, but does not last forever.
Best Christmas ever?! 🙂
I used to love the family Christmases of years ago. I love the ones Hubby and I have now though.
That was excellent. I think it was one of your best.
Thank you! You’re very kind.
Hello Di, I like the approach you took to this image, well done.
A interesting journey. I think he will have a lot of stories to tell
A modern day Heathcliffe, perhaps?
That’s a thought
Good feel! Nothing feels great as going back to your roots.
Thank you for your kind comment.
