Thursday photo prompt: Appointed #writephoto

I am so glad Sue has felt able to resume this photo challenge as it was always one of my favourites.
This week we have ‘Appointed’ to work with, and this picture.
For visually challenged writers, the image shows the black silhouette of a crow perched atop a blackened and dead-looking tree. In the background the sky is blue and the trees are decked in the full green leaf of summer…

Look, it wasn’t my fault OK?
They told me to take up position here as the appointed look out.
And that’s what I did………… look out.
No-one said anything about looking UP or DOWN, so how was I to know lightning was about to strike or some little twerp with a match was going to play birthday candles.
I could have been frazzled, so I’m lucky it was just the tree.
Guess my role from now on  is ‘charred’ duty, caw, caw!!
And yeah, I’m fine. Thanks for asking.

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.
