Thursday photo prompt: Darkness #writephoto

Thanks again to Sue for posting another photo to inspire us.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a bank of dark clouds rolling in across a sunny moor, casting its shadow on the hills of the horizon.

Rolling dark clouds
Descend on the horizon,
A prelude to engulf
The landscape in darkness.
The wind changes,
Calling through the stillness
Heralding a warning
Before it strikes.
A storm is coming,
Best to lock down
And ride out its anger
Until it passes.
Nature’s way of cleansing.






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.

    I like a ‘prelude to engulf’. Like Sue, I couldn’t help think of the current situation.
