Friday Fictioneers : 24th December

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is our hostess for the Friday Fictioneers photoprompt.
You can find out more and join in the fun here
This week she has selected another of her own pictures.
Fragments of another world
What lies ahead
And what is left behind.
Can we reach inside the past
To change the future
For what’s left of Man.
Burning forward,
Barren, bleak, cold,
Questions asked, never answered.
Lies, deceit, unknown
The path we tread uncertain.
Fragments of another world
Reach into the past………….
And remember.

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.

  1. That can only be done maybe very slightly

  2. neilmacdon says:

    Perhaps the questions are getting asked now, if a little tentatively and much too late

  3. murisopsis says:

    We spend entirely too much time looking back on what was instead of addressing the present issues!

  4. Sadje says:

    Such a touching poem Di.

  5. Somebody once said that those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it!

  6. oneta hayes says:

    Looking back can be like history and teach us some things to avoid – and some things to do right. I’m all for learning from history.

  7. Dale says:

    Wouldn’t it be nice if we learned, once and for all?
    Happy Christmas to you and yours, Di!

  8. I wish we could reach into the past and change a few things, but alas all we can do is remember and hopefully learn from it. I love your prose! Merry Christmas, Di!

    that’s why Buddha said, live in the present.
