Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt – Week 33

This is my second entry for this particular photo challenge.

Your challenge or writing prompt is this:

  • what emotions or feelings get evoked or aroused in you when you look at this photograph taken by Lynn

Our Week 33 picture is again, pretty much what it shows. An old wooden gate found along the Bruce Trail in the Beaver Valley area of Ontario.
You can find out more here
The trees whispered,
The gentlest rustling in the leaves
Calling to whoever might hear.
The gate lay open, unguarded, free,
Beckoning for One to enter.
Tentative footsteps approached, faltered,
And turned back.
The wind whistled through the treetops,
A lonely wailing sound.
The gate remained open,
One day One would come and pass through.
The trees would rejoice,
Birdsong would return,
And life would be renewed in the forest.
But until then, the leaves remained hopeful,
Whispering to the sky.


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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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 am the tree and I am the gate. This is a wonderful expression of the openness that we all need to have when we interact with the world and each other. We all long for connections!
