Three Things Challenge #170

Welcome to Di from pensitivy101: The Three Things Challenge.
Every day she’ll give you three things that will hopefully trigger your creativity.
You don’t have to use them all if you don’t want to, simply read the prompt and see what comes to mind. Today’s Three Things are FIGHT WOUND BLOOD

The Pack.

She fought with all of her might, putting up the fight of her life. The pack was not around to help her. The mongrels bit into her , she fell, they pounced, she perished.

The pack arrived too late, her wound was mortal. Her blood coloured the snow. The pack missed her.

For Maggie

A poem of love from Di to Maggie read at source.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 10th, 2020, is “dogs.” Use the word “dogs” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

I love dogs, the are the most loving animals, they work with us and for us. The most important thing is they give us unconditional love.

Our Dog Ruby is a retired guide dog, we have taken her for her free run exercise time since she started working at eighteen months, when she retired she came to live with us.

Below is a poem I wrote about a young friend of Natalie, she a real hero. She has a partner and two beautiful and clever children. Ruby and I have the privilege of joining her and Quala, her guide dog on Qula’s Free exercise walks.

I wrote this double Etheree about her and Quala last year .

Blind Faith

Trust

Is all

I ask for.

Never will I

Complain. I will learn.

Eighteen months training.

I always do my best

To help you at play and rest.

I am part of the family

Life without out me is a memory.

I’m your guide dog to help and set you free.

Trust

In her

I put my

Faith. She helps me.

Blind, I cannot see

Her presence sets me free.

She is with me everyday

We walk the children to the school.

You help me work and play, my best friend.

Quala and me together to the end .

One-Liner Wednesday

Brittany Day 2

We awoke to utter silence…. Honest silence!

And stunning pastoral views. We made our way down stairs to be met by a happy Ruby.

Well we were very lucky with our Gite which though basic was very comfy and well equipped.

What to do on our first day. After breakfast I took Ruby for a walk while hubby drove to the village to pick up some supplies.

The walk was lovely and the weather was glorious. I set my sights on walking to a huge water tower before turning round. Ruby and I nearly got there but not far from our goal we passed a farm. Just as I was admiring the beautiful garden the back door of the farm house opened and two huge black dogs rushed. I immediately put Ruby on the lead, turned and started to walk back, I heard the farmer calling the dogs back. They approached us, Ruby ever a lady greeted the older dog, he then left, the second dog a large Bullmastiff puppy was more persistent. The farmer called him, Ruby ignored him, me I was scared because he barking and jumping up at us, finally the puppy returned to his master and I said a rude word!

The rest of the walk was uneventful.

We spent the rest of the day, sunbathing, walking Ruby…no more farm dog run ins. We also planned where we would go during the week.

We were amazed at how quiet the area was, so quiet and at night so dark! We could see stars and planets! 🌟

Lune Day Nine

At Kat Myrman‘s suggestion,along with Jane Dougherty, I’m trying out the Lune form this month. The Lune is a three line poem, either 5/3/5 syllables or 3/5/3 words.

Always by my side

Ruby is

My love and my guide

A magic tree

Out walking this afternoon with our best friends and our dogs we found this magical tree.

It’s another reminder that Autumn is definitely here. Some children or young at heart adults had spent time to make a beautiful tree out of all the signs of Autumn.

I honestly think this work of art, and work of art it is, is proof that Autumn Annie exists.

As we went along our way

Out on our walk with friends today.

We found a magical woodland tree

Such a lovely sight to see.

Someone hand spent time and loving care

To let us know that Autumn Annie has been there. 

Sniffing our dogs, Monty and Ruby

Stopped to check if it was a real tree

And of course to have a Pee!
