Tell the story: #6

Many thanks to a bereaved Dad who has tagged me for this challenge. I love the picture!

I would love to visit that distant place, explore those indeterminable shapes, perhaps discover a land of promise and opportunity.
I am protected here. At least they say I am. From what, I’m not sure.
The food is OK, and I have water and shelter. Not much in the way of excitement though.
If only I could see what my ancestors had seen, felt what they had felt.
But it’s not meant to be.
I’m part of a repopulation program you see. There are only twelve of us left as my kind are almost extinct, so we are kept in cages and can only dream of freedom.
They think they are doing good, but it’s too late for them to make amends for their misguided past.

Now for tagging three people to tell a story inspired by the following image:

Sadje at Keep it Alive
Anuragbakhshi who can always spin a good yarn
and
The Diary of a Country Bumpkin 

Have fun!!

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.

  1. I couldn’t help but think of the children and families separated at the border with Mexico, or of the Japanese camps. Great use of words to disturb our complacency.
