Christine over at Stine Writing has provided us with another stunning picture to work with this week.  The more you look, the more you see………..

Creatures frozen for all time were granted just six days of life each year.
The mountains would pulse with fever, breath would be sighed in scrolls and they learned centuries ago to live side by side rather than fight for territorial domain.
Eagles would circle the land, casting long shadows over the landscape, but even they were left to Time’s devices and awoke on the same six days.
It was an uncanny bonding of souls and instinct, young and old, prey and predator, but had a strange harmony as if each species were glad to breathe in the air and remember days long passed when they were warm blooded and not figments of someone’s imagination when the sun set.

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 is such a beautiful fable-type story! It sounds like something someone would tell a child as the look out at the mountains. Thanks for participating!

  2. Reblogged this on Stine Writing and commented:
    Perhaps a new fable is made

  3. This beautiful tale has the feeling of a conversation passed from a grandfather to his grandkids.
