Your line for this week is:

Nights in our desert were clear and cold.
Nights in our desert were clear and cold.
Sentries camped on hilltops
Forever watchful,
Snaking lights drawn
Towards a glowing pool.
Absorbed into the whole,
No-one left.
Ever.
Come daybreak,
All was quiet,
Empty and dark.
Nights in this desert were clear and cold
As sentries watched.

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.
