In Other Words, invisible…

Patricia’s challenge :
Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word invisible

You think we are invisible, being out of your line of sight.
Look down and we are level with your navel.
We are like you, just not as mobile or upright.
Our legs are wheels.
Please see us.

I am not wheelchair bound, but had a serious wakeup call when I was put in one to do my shopping several years ago. Other shoppers just don’t see you.


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! 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.

    You caught it perfectly! People can see an 8 year old child but not a woman in a wheelchair in a crosswalk!

    A good reminder Di, for us all to be aware.

    I can somewhat empathize, as I’m short…which apparently to some folks is invisible.
