Tale Weaver – #232 – July 18th – Visit

This week Michael sets us a task to compose a tale in which the term/word ‘visit’ features.

They came to her in dreams, visitors in slumber but not sinister or threatening.
Neither were they lost spirits, just separated souls with a message for one that remained.
Unafraid and accepting, she seemed to attract them like moths to a flame, but with no searing consequence.
Only one transmission per entity from the Other Side, a visit through a portal of time and space that only worked one way.
She never uttered a word in response, just listened to what was said, and when it was done, continued to dream until morning.
No-one questioned or tested her. There was always something said only the departed and receiver knew, something trivial or vital, she never knew which or what, as she was purely a vessel for communication.
It was her gift, and one she shared gladly, picking her moment when the selected recipient was alone and quietly passing the message on. In doing so, she saw the peace her words from beyond the grave brought and smiled. They could rest now.

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 recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    This is an excellent take on this prompt Di, something different from you. I read once the dead are always with us just that they exist in a different room. Thanks for your thoughts this week.
