Thursday photo prompt: Castle #writephoto

Welcome to Sue Vincent’s Photo Prompt.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a silhouetted castle in the half-light, set in a lake surrounded by hills.

The Castle was their guide, their mentor to a new tomorrow.
The inhabitants knew the stories, but none had seen any of the magical beings of days long gone.

There were no trees to explain the whisperings on the breeze, but as night fell, the songs of the lost spirits rose to the stars.
A gentle melody of longing and sadness caressed the silvery ribbons reflected in the loch as creatures past and present joined in the serenade.

Dragons and fireflies, water horses and nymphs, night owls and nightingales, all sang to the moon when she shone in her full glory.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
