Ice Pops

KL Caley is our hostess for the Thursday Write Photo challenge. You can find out more and join in here.
For visually challenged writers, the image shows a frozen lake with birds standing on the ice. At a defrosted section a group of birds gather.

Ice contains no future, just the past, sealed away.

Haruki Murakami


My feet are cold.
Sorry Pet, but there’s not much I can do.
I’m also thirsty.
There’s not a lot I can do about that either.
But what about them over there?
I know, but you’re better off here.
Why?
The ice broke and they’ve got more to worry about than cold feet.

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.
