Storm Brewing


We sat on a bench
Watching the seething sky
While the merciless wind
Whipped at our cheeks
When tenderly you took my hand
You said you’d die for me 

You said you’d die for me
Yet that was long ago
Youth is foolish and unwary
Yes, in the moment I believed
Your untrue truths
But how you lied to me 

But how you lied to me
Before long
It was me who died for you


Under an alien sky

Posted in response to the Daily Post weekly photo challenge. This week’s theme ‘Abstract’

Cheated a bit this week and used the theme as an excuse to play with image editing.  I use and editing suite called ‘Gimp’ which is the open-source version of Photoshop.  It may not have quite all the bells and whistles that photoshop has, but it’s pretty close and being the free option, I’m happy to work with it!


Here is the original for comparison.  It was taken on our wonderful holiday in Beadnell, Northumberland, a couple of years ago.
