A New Picture Prompt for Saturdays

Dakshali has started a new picture prompt and asked me to join in. You can find out more here and hopefully will participate too.

The roses bloom,
Their scent fills the room,
I sit in this chair,
And remember.
We were so young,
Our life just begun,
You brushed out my hair
It was September.

We never knew
What fate would do
To threaten our life
Time was so short
We tried hard to thwart
Husband leaving wife

Roses are for you
All those memories too
Bring you back to me
And I daydream…..
Of you in my arms
I submit to your charms,
Wild, loved and free,
Feel the tears stream.

Rose scent on the air
As I brush out my hair,
It lingers and sways,
I remember……
Days gone too soon,
Your soul orbits the moon,
Shares the sun’s rays
Now and forever.


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.
