She materialised from dusky shadows,
A look of promise in her eyes,
Sparkling light enhanced her beauty,
I was taken by surprise.
‘Come with me’ she whispered urgently,
‘Take my hand, hold on tight.
Don’t let go,’ and then together
We disappeared into the night.
Next day the beach was found deserted,
Nothing to suggest I’d lain
Under the stars and velvet canopy,
As the tide had claimed the shore again.
Had I not gone, I’d have been a victim
Bones picked clean by the Gulls of Death,
She had saved me from disaster
Before I’d taken my final breath.

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.
