Tale weaver – #287 – Mysterious Markings – 6th August

Michael’s challenge this week is extremely thought provoking and can go in all sorts of directions!

This week compose a story in which on a walk through bushland you discover a cave with mysterious markings on the walls. Write your interpretation of the symbols.


It was an exciting find and attracted experts from all around the globe.
Samples were taken and theories offered, from ancient tribes to alien landings.
The scrolls and hieroglyphics were said to be linked to early Egyptians and the Pharaohs,
yet eager newcomers to the science queried how this could be in the Australian bush.
This fuelled arguments about alternative life forms from outer space, which wasn’t exactly met with ridicule or scorn as all options were being kept open.
Hand and foot prints were compared with modern man and large primates, colourings sent for analysis to the most renown laboratories. It became a world challenge to make the first breakthrough in identification.
Research and scrutiny of age pointed to prehistoric times except one thing.
Nowhere had pink been used and the compounds unknown.
So where had it all come from?

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
