For Sue

Like so many, I am saddened to learn that our friend and WP colleague has passed away.
Though we all knew it was inevitable, it still comes as a heavy blow.

We never met, other than the comments sections on our blogs and later personal emails.
Sue had a way of transporting you with her words to places beyond the photographs and what was immediately before you. Her love of nature and observations was something we shared, as was our love of dogs. Ani reminds me so much of Maggie, and Sue did a wonderful piece including her at Christmas in Ani’s Dear Santa posts. Now Ani and Stuart will be a comfort to each other.

Sue was someone who inspired you, brought out the best in you and everyone in so many ways with her writings. Even during these past few months, her spirit, compassion and courage shone through, sharing her thoughts and always an encouragement to others.
Her loss cannot be quantified, and I shall miss her deeply.

On Monday, I wrote this for a photo challenge.
Sue was on my mind, in my uppermost thoughts, and it is for her.
The night has a new light, long may it shine.


You’re there now,
The brightest star,
Dazzling almost blinding,
I know it’s you.
Your energy will never fade,
It just has a new dimension
And perspective.
You have become
The beauty of the night,
A beacon to all,
Showing the way
For all of us,
As you continue to shine.


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.

    Truer words were never spoken, Di. Like you I counted Sue a friend, although we’ve never met either. To see the world through Sue’s eyes was, indeed, a special gift for which I am grateful. The poem you have written for her is very beautiful and more than anything, I hope it finds its way to Sue’s two granddaughters. ❤️

  9. This is beautiful. I am crying, again ❤️🤗

    I didnt know sue well, but she was a very kind person, whenever I’d participate in the photo prompt, she’d always comment to me! what you wrote here for her di is beautiful. Shine bright sue! Rip!

    Though I knew it was coming it was still a shock to hear. RIP Sue. We met online and she was part of my weekly prompt schedule. I rarely missed one. She will be missed. What a lovely tribute Di!

    • Thanks Tessa. I rarely missed her write photos once i discovered them.

      • Tessa says:

        I rarely missed them either and wrote a lot of these serial prompt stories using her prompts. I wrote one 30+thousand word story using them once. It will become one of the books in my series. I just have to adjust some of it so it fits into my fictitional town, but it is a mystery story rather than murder. Right now I am thinking about making it book 4.
