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! 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.
