Friday Fictioneers: 15th November

This week our host Rochelle Wisoff-Fields has chosen a picture by Roger Bultot for our prompt.

No-one was turned away.
No secret knocks or passwords,
A welcome meal,
A hot bath,
Warm bed for the night.
No questions,
No judgements.
All were equal
In their need.
This was their sanctuary.

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.

  1. It’s like an exceptionally well stocked soup kitchen. We need more of those places

    The world needs more places like this right now.

    Lovely words.

    And we need so many of these, unfortunately!
    I loved this.

  7. draliman says:

    Lovely. I liked the short snappy sentences.

  8. James McEwan says:

    sometimes you need a place to escape to. The sharp punching prose reflects the need not to be judged. Many homeless people just need that left to get them back onto their feet.

  9. bearmkwa says:

    Beautiful! I know of a few places like that.
