Sunday Photo Fiction: July 14 2019

Thanks to Donna for hosting the Sunday Photo Fiction challenge

I was beautiful once.
Majestic, fearless, awesome in flight.
Now look at me.
Stripped of everything, including my dignity,
A discarded shell left to rot in the sun.
The sky reflects my mood.
Dull and lifeless,
There is no light to reflect my inner being.
Let the rains come,
They will wash away the heartache
Of what was, and what is now forgotten.
A skeleton of engineering,
A soul without flight,
I am lost forever.

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.
