#WRITEPHOTO – Folly

A folly is a building usually constructed strictly for aesthetic pleasure. I think this one is a little gem, what do you think?
The Folly – Image by KL Caley

For visually challenged writers, the image shows an almost symmetrical brick folly with gothic style arched doorways at either side.

My take is:

If Walls Could Talk.

I tell you, someone made a major mistake here.
They did not. This is how it was meant to be.
Not in the design I saw. We were  side by side, there was no space between us.
It’s not so bad. And people can each admire our perspective view.
I don’t want them to admire a view! I want to share what I see with you!
Calm yourself dearest. We shall stand for all time, and in quiet times, reminisce about days gone by, romances we have witnessed, young love and illicit meetings.
I don’t want to reminisce! I want to be beside you always as we were intended to be in the original plans! I feel we’ve been separated on purpose.
Well, that is someone else’s folly then, not ours.


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.
