MLMM Photo Challenge #385

Sarah is hosting the MLMM Tuesday Photo Challenge for the moment and has picked this picture by Mark Payton for us this week.
‘Please, step this way’
She heard a voice say,
‘It’s a stunning view
Enjoyed by so few.’
Her heart beat fast
Would this be her last,
Sweat flooded her skin,
She couldn’t win,
It went on forever,
Finishing never.
Airless and high
Felt the birds flying by
Close to her head
Filling her with dread.
She was at the top
Of a perilous drop
How did she arrive
This far up in the sky?
Vertigo at its worst
High above Planet Earth,
No way to get down
To her boring old town
She awoke to her screams
Of these frightening dreams

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.
