Thursday photo prompt: Fantasy #writephoto

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a green landscape of rolling hills and an island in a bay. In the foreground, pastel-painted buildings and a tall clock tower are surrounded by summer trees.

It was so clear in her mind, this place where she was free of the shackles confining her.
She yearned to climb the tower holding majesty over the bay, set foot on the small island of lush green surrounded by the palest blue water. She could almost hear the wind rustling the leaves in the trees and the call of the first spring cuckoo echoed in her ears.
The hazy horizon was a host of greens and shadows, tentative fingers reaching up to the sky to caress the clouds or touch the stars. How she wanted to belong in this fantasy.
This image was only in her dreams, and she knew when she awakened, she would be back in the present, her mind active but her body an immobile shell.

Written for Sue Vincent’s Thursday Write Photo challenge.

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.
