Thursday photo prompt: Afar #writephoto

This week, Sue’s image shows green fields leading to distant, snow-covered hills, lit with the pink-gold glow of sunset.
She could see them in the distance, just a spec on the horizon, instinct calling them home.
Every year she watched for them from afar, knowing they would come in their hundreds to the breeding grounds of their ancestors and future offspring.
Long arduous journeys, perhaps casualties on the way, but still they came.
In the Spring they would leave, returning from whence they came, but for now, she would look out for the Canada Geese and revel in the wonder of it all.

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.
