Ripples of Stone

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows the sun rising between two hills. In the front is a valley. One can see concentric circles in the valley made of green vegetation and a pile of black stones in their center.

The stones represented the nucleus of a new world, a Sun of an unexplored solar system, rippling out into the green of night.
What was this new phenomena, vying for supremacy over the Earth’s Sun as it rose to herald the start of a new day.
It was written that this would come to pass, a battle to the end of life as Man knew it, the spiralling stones providing a pathway to the stars and a new beginning.
Had that time come, or was it a message from the Gods that change was coming?
The experts argued with the scientists and world leaders listened to no-one as the mocking laughter of Thunder echoed through the valley.

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.
