Thursday photo prompt: Tokens #writephoto

Sue Vincent is our host for the Thursday Photo Prompt.
This week, her prompt is Tokens:

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a feather, an autumn leaf and two bright red berries or beads, left amongst the stones and plants by a stone that looks like a head with jewelled eyes…

Ah, you’ve caught me.
Come and sit with me while I explain.
Do you remember the early days of our courtship?
You made silver and gold roses from the lining of cigarette packets.
We both smoked then, so I had a lot of flowers!
I found a small stone the shape of a heart on the beach.
We still have it, along with a multitude of tiny shells.
Little things,  unnoticed by so many, yet picked up and treasured.
The feather was a riot.
We both had a go at ‘quill’ writing.
Just scratches on paper because we forgot to angle the dipping end.
Foolish and fun,
Our Love.
We kept the leaf from our first autumn together.
The colours remained long after the season had passed.
The beads are from a board game we made and needed counters.
More laughter as they were the same colour and we kept forgetting whose was whose.
Little things, so precious.
The rock is one you engraved and decorated.
No gem stones, but pieces of polished coal and coloured glass.
Here it sits with my memories.
My heart is full,
My eyes shine with diamonds,
There is no need for words
In this, my garden of tokens of Love.

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.
