Tale Weaver – #244 – A Solitary Figure – 10th October.

This week Michael tells us the image and wording can apply to any man, woman, object, figure whatever your imagination suggests to you.

Why is your figure solitary? Is it by choice or something imposed on the figure?
Go where your imagination sends you and enjoy the experience.

He felt insignificant in a world of extreme space and emptiness.
No sound, no movement, nothing save the shallow almost silent breath escaping from his chest.
He needed this.
Time and solitude, to be alone with his thoughts…………. and himself.
Change was all around him, a rollercoaster not of his making, a ride he wanted to end.
He reached out a hand, fully expecting to touch the sky and see it absorbed into the blue.
All he felt was the chill of the night on his ungloved palm.
He had no idea how long he stood there, enveloped by the darkness and witnessing the birth of starlight on its velvet canopy.
Insignificance in a world of extreme space and emptiness?
The stars proved space was never empty and he felt refreshed somehow.


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.

    Good one Di. We are but minute within the universe but the space we take up can warm the hearts of those around us.
