What do you See: 16th March

Thanks go to Sadje for continuing this challenge after the sad loss of Hélène last year.

For the Visually challenged readers, the picture shows a woman dressed as a warrior standing on a rock and next to her is a giant mask. One of the eye socket of which is half broken.

Do not cry My Lord.
My people shall avenge you.
They will rue the day they chose to revolt.
Watch over us,
We shall regain your honour,
They will worship you as before.
Guide us, oh Mighty One,
Protect us from their armies,
You will rise from the ashes in triumph.
And yet you still cry……
There is more to this than Power.
Where and how will it end?

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.

    You spoke for both of them. The one fallen and the one left standing. Thanks for joining in the challenge.
