Many thanks to Brenda for hosting the Sunday Whirl every week.
sparrows, vast, stillness, hope, face, silent, check, pulpit, lack, whisper, kiss, map
The sparrows chatter in the gardens,
Oblivious of the vast stillness of my heart.
There is no hope for me,
I am cursed as I stare into his face
Bearing down on me from the Pulpit.
His last kiss was a whisper on my lips,
A silent parting,
I had to check my tears.
The qualities I lack
He found in her arms,
A map to perdition
For us both I fear.
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.
Very powerful, wonderful use of the prompts
Great take, Di 🙂
So very sad – especially unrequited love…
