Come along everyone, we have work to do. No shilly shallying.’
The excited whispers hushed, and the light began to emerge.
‘All together now ladies! That ship is likely to be wrecked if we don’t glow our finest!’
The captain saw the light through the mist and was able to guide his ship accordingly.
‘Dazzle ladies! Lead these mere mortals away from the dangerous waters! Rise up and shine! Shine, SHINE!’
The lantern with its precious contents glowed through the storm clouds, showing safe passage.


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.
