Friday Fictioneers 28th January

Many thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting and providing this week’s
photoprompt for the Friday Fictioneers challenge.
It rested in an artificial universe, with man-made stars and delicate moonbeams.
At first, it was a sight of wonder and awe with its intricate patterns of lace, mosaic and flowers, yet now three decades later, people took little notice of the majestic colourful disc overlooking them as they dined below.

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.

    Great imagery in your story. The implications of that disc shaking free from its shackles is chilling.

  7. Bill says:

    After all that time, who knew. Fun story.

    Three decades! Maybe the passengers inside were having trouble deciding if coming here was such a good idea. I’d love to know what happens next.
