Thursday photo prompt: Poised #writephoto

Sue’s prompt this week:


For visually challenged writers, the image shows a leaf-strewn flight of stone-cut steps descending into a hole in the ground. Poised to ascend…or descend… is the dark silhouette of a strange figure…



I see, but must not be seen.
I listen, but cannot be heard.
I touch, but cannot feel,
I yearn, but cannot fulfil.
I know what is beneath,
But not what is above.
I am not of this world,
I must look,
I must find,
I must report
The sights, sounds and dreams
Of what these strange beings
Call Life.

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.

    I like the contrasts in the opening lines. Not sure I would like to bump into this creature though!

  4. I wonder to whom the creature reposts to!

    I think I’ve seen this character in a nightmare or two. Beautifully written.
