build, challenge, erase, skin, growl, firm, night, regrets, until, breathe, mountains, try

We try to build a life,
Firm, without regrets.
Night draws in bringing
A challenge to survive Winter.
Skin colour fades,
Stomachs growl
Until it is hard to breathe.
Impossible mountains to climb,
Existence is erased
And we are lost.


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.

    • Thanks Carol Anne. I see it as the Pensioner’s Nightmare in the current energy crisis.

        I was listening to the UK News today, I heard that people who are even on high money like 45 or £50,000 or even going to struggle it’s a horrible situation and it should be looked at more a lot of people are going to struggle this winter here in Ireland too

      • People are going to die Carol Anne. They cannot afford to eat and heat, and some won;t be able to afford either.

    A rather dark poem but it was inspired by dark doings…
