Roger Shipp is our host and this week has chosen an image by Christian Mackie on UnSplash
I know not what year it is,
All I do know is that I am awake.
The elements have cast aside their shackles,
My eyes can see the sky,
My nose smells the scent of the living.
Soon my mouth will be free to roar
And shake the Earth to its core.
The rock above me is crying,
Tears of release or fear, I’m not sure,
But it is not to blame.
I have a long memory.
The descendants of those responsible
For my captivity and imprisonment
Will know I have found them.
I will wreak havoc on Mankind
As inch by inch I am exposed
Towards total freedom.


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.
