Thursday photo prompt: Calling #writephoto

Every Thursday, Sue Vincent posts one of her pictures to inspire us to write.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows  a snowstorm with the silhouette of a stag watching between two trees.
I can see him, staring back at me through the trees.
It’s cold and damp, but he is watching, proud, alert and arrogant.
The snow blurs my vision, but the shape is unmistakable.
Who will move first I wonder? The hunter, or the hunted?
Today is not my time to die as he moves away to warmer surroundings.
I dip my head in acknowledgement, then continue along the track.


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.

    The flipped perspective is a nice touch, as is the resolution.

  5. Beautiful piece. I’m so happy he moved away from the hunter. 💗

  6. I love how you used the stag’s perspective.
