Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Story Starter, 28 January 2023!
You will be given a sentence to start off your response. It is your choice whether you write using poetry or prose.

Your sentence starter this week is:

  • Am I asleep, or am I dreaming? This question whirled through her mind.

Am I asleep, or am I dreaming?
This question whirled through her mind.
So near, so real, unable to touch
Or hear the words from one so kind:
Years have passed, she has not aged,
The image reflected back each day
A few grey hairs, those twinkling eyes,
That smile in such a beguiling way.
‘I am my mother,’ she thought with a smile,
‘In dreams she comes to me once in a while.’


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.
