#writephoto — The Fool on the Hill

AC40970F-B894-48C5-A7FA-ABE5222E1C15Day after day, the man on the hill slowly walks alone with his walking staff in hand. Nobody knows who he is, or why he walks the hill day in and day out. He walks there all day long until the sun goes down, watching as the world spins around and around.

Most of the townsfolk refer to him as the fool on the hill. Some of them have tried to talk to him, but he never listens to them and he never has an answer to their questions. In fact, he never even seems to notice them. He just smiles with what they call his foolish grin. Hence, nobody wants to join him.

He knows that they don’t like him and they really don’t want to know him. They think he is just a fool with his head in the clouds. But he doesn’t care about them. He actually feels sorry for those townsfolk, who live their hectic lives without making the time to explore nature and to appreciate all that it has to offer.

They may think of him as the fool on the hill, but in his heart, he knows that they are the real fools.

      I noticed that you, also, paid homage to that song in your post. As soon as I saw that picture, I could think of nothing else.

    Great take on the prompt and an opportunity to listen to a classic, what more could you ask for. Cheers.

    One of my favourites, but..the Beatles…late 60s….so many to choose from!

    My mum used to live on the same street as George Harrison, by the way. They must’ve both been pre-teen, guess it was in the Fifties.

      There are so many talented and successful musicians in the UK in such a comparatively small area (compared to the US). It seems like a very musically artistic place.
