Thursday photo prompt: Turning #writephoto

This is my entry for Sue Vincent of The Daily Echo‘s Thursday Photo Prompt. # writephoto. Rules and Pingback Here.

Paul stopped at the turn in the road, he dismounted his bike. He shielded his eyes as he looked across the valley, the sun low in the sky almost blinding.

Was this the turning, had he found the answers he was searching for. …He did feel better he did feel at peace. Suddenly he was exhausted, he got back his bike and headed down the valley towards the mountains.

He saw the smoke from the house before he took the turn. He put his bike by the back door and knocked.

She opened the door and smiled. “Welcome home Paul ……”

    A lovely tale, Willow. Sometimes you have to leave ‘home’ to know when it is time to return. x
