KL Caley is our hostess for the Thursday Writephoto challenge, and this week has a guest photo from Rebecca M. Douglass.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a puddle with leaves and trees reflected in the surface.
A different perspective, a different world,
Colours tinged with blue.
Perfect replica, mirrored scene,
Tempting, drawing you.
Look below, see things shimmer,
Touch and feel the spell,
See tracks enter, disappear,
Where to, who can tell.
Dare you match curiosity
To pass through the portal here,
Or walk on by and leave behind
The mystery hidden there.


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.

    Ooh intriguing. I think I would touch, maybe dip a toe or hand in first though – haha. Thank you so much for joining in the challenge:
