Alone, unannounced, a face in a crowd
Needs must in some circumstances,
Only making one’s presence felt if necessary.
Not wanting to be in the limelight,
Yearning for solitude.
Mostly in the background, simply ‘there’
Otherwise a phantom of imagination,
Utterly bland and insignificant,
Silent, subdued, perhaps even secret.

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.

    Like so many people… I can hear the song “Eleanor Rigby” playing softly in the background as I read this one!
