Photo Challenge # 290

This stunning picture is by Jaime ibarra. Thanks Nekneeraj for providing it to work with this week!

I hear them call,
Demanding voices cloaking fear,
They shunned and ignored the old ways.
They let their world fall,
Only hearing what they wanted to hear,
Now they turn back to the old days.
Sweet messenger of sorrow,
You bring word to me for aid,
Why should I heed their plea?
They wanted a brighter tomorrow,
The price for which they have paid,
They turned their backs on me.
Yes, I hear them call,
Redemption and pity are their cries,
I will listen to their sorry tale:
Their ancestral spirits may once again stand tall,
Perhaps forget their deceit and lies,
And save them from their living hell.


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.
