Rosy Hue

The image below is from snatti89 at
For the visually challenged writer, the image shows a young woman standing at dusk looking at her smartphone at what may be a train platform. There is a large puddle of water in the foreground reflecting her body, the overhead wires and lights, and the deep reddish-orange color of the sky.

This is my response to Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.~

A world through rose coloured glasses,
Eyes sensitive to light,
A vision enhanced by blushes
Tingeing the sky at night.
Keeping a safe distance longing
For her to look once his way,
Nerves that should she approach him
He wouldn’t know what to say.
Dreams aren’t confined to sleeping,
She’s embraced by a rosy hue,
And answers his text in an instant…..
Wishes can sometimes come true.

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.
