Tell the Story challenge: 10th February

I have been tagged by abereaveddad to weave a yarn around this image:

New Day.

It was going to be one of those days. He could feel it.
No dazzling today.
Everything was going to be distorted, unclear, chilly and hazy.
The landscape was undefined, there were hills somewhere, a small coppice, hedgerows and a country lane.
Even the birds were cheesed off and silent. Maybe they weren’t even awake yet.
There were days when he would have liked a lie in, snuggle down under the cloudy duvet and sleep for an extra couple of hours.
But oh no.
Duty calls, that damn rooster announces the new day, and before he knows it, he’s rising.
It’s automatic.
Look, no batteries, no wires.
Watch him rise.
He is afterall, the Sun.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Thanks for the tag. It may be a few days before I can get to it, though.
