Writephoto 10th June: Tunnel

KL Caley is now our host for the Thursday writephoto originally inspired by Sue Vincent.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a tunnel made from trees, branches and grass. Towards the end are 2 ducks.
The Tunnel – Image by KL Caley

Under the coolness of branches,
Hidden from the scorching sun,
Gladys and Muriel wander,
An adventure for them just begun.
Their pond is far behind them,
They absconded to pastures new,
Bored with the flock pecking order,
This was so much better to do!
They knew not how far they traveled,
Or the distance it was from home,
But as their bellies rumbled,
Perhaps it was not good to roam….
Cool water and grass now seemed favourite,
Time to turn feather and find
The way back from whence they had come from,
Once forward was now left behind.
Open space beckoned ahead now,
They recognised this part of the way,
They’d suffered from tunnel vision
Which had taken up most of the day!

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.

    Love the cadence and rhyme – not to mention those birds thinking it would be better over yonder!
