For visually challenged writers, the image shows a foggy day with the sun just emerging through the clouds. Emerging from the fog is a large castle.
Image K L Caley.

Strangers may not know I exist,
The fog is my blanket of secrecy,
Hidden from view of prying eyes,
I am shrouded in intrigue and mystery.
My turrets gleam in the morning sun,
Catching the rays as they spin
Their webs of light and fantasy
To whatever is hidden within.
Time has no measure, then or now,
If anything, it passed me by,
Horse drawn vehicles, modern day cars,
Or planes flying way up high.
Tread softly lest I hear you approach
And heed the clang of my chains,
As the drawbridge is raised I welcome you
But may not let you out again.

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.
