In Autumn,
They come and walk between us,
Treading on our children,
Tramping them into the ground.
No-one gives heed to our presence,
We stand majestic and serene,
A background blinded by their flashlights.
We feel, not as humans do,
But we are living things.
They may see mist shrouding us,
But those are our tears for the fallen,
The lost, the lonely, and the unborn.


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.

    This is so moving Di! People really seldom heed the vegetation in the forest floor. Thanks for joining in

    Sensitivity… for the trees 🙂 🙂 Nicely done. I’ve never been here before but I noticed you’d lived on a narrowboat. A lifelong ambition for me!

    • It was a wonderful experience, even though only for three years. Health and circumstances forced our hand to sell, but we’d go back in an instant if we could.

    Poor trees and thoughtless humans. So well expressed, Di.
