Thursday photo prompt: Torrent #writephoto

Every Thursday, Sue Vincent gives us one of her photographs to set our creative minds in motion.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a waterfall, its peat-coloured waters cascading over a rocky ledge and surrounded by trees.

Momentum brings us here, gathering sand and pebbles on our way, naively secure in our journey.
Suddenly there is nothing below, we fall and flounder in a torrent, angry water boiling around, above and beneath us as we try to gain purchase.
The trees and inhabitants look on and do nothing.
The cascading sounds accompany birdsong, a normal time in a normal day.
Our origins and destiny are of no interest to them, the end result is always the same.
Water falls and continues on its way, but for the sand and pebbles? Who knows, in time they may provide a stepping stone from what was to what is, and what could be.


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.

    Love this, Di… the stream of life is not always gentle…but it always knows where it is going, even if the pebbles don’t.

  3. The stream of life is perfect. Sometimes it floods.

    This is just so comforting Di, I wrote along similar lines, life ,flow, and the falls. Unlike you though I am lost and a little scared 💜
