Crimson’s Creative Challenge #49

A strange young man  called Crockett

wanted to go into space in a rocket

but his helmet and mask were too small

they just didn’t work at all

but it was a good try, so don’t knock it.

Listen to the wail

of the soul that cannot wake,

day of reckoning.

void, in life,

in mind, then unprovoked

memories once imagined lost,

reborn

Silently he stares

defying his tormentors

endless symphony,

wind and ocean in concert

to orchestrate his downfall.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #48

red-bridgeRatty loved to sit on the grassy bank of the winding river.   Relaxing in the warmth of the sun it was hard to stop his little eyes from closing and he could lean back and just lie with his head resting on a grassy hillock. It was not to be for he only came here with one thought in mind. He would stare into the mouth of the tunnel eagerly awaiting the next rush of foam coming out into the light of the day. His nostrils and whiskers would twitch and quiver in anticipation as he heard the iron grill rising and the rush of evil-smelling sewage would come pouring out once more as another mass of rubbish was discharged into the sparkling stream. Every time he would dive into the water and with a merry smile sift through for any delicacies to take home to his little burrow.

Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, October 9th 2019 … dementia

Frustrated we both,

relish times of clarity

tears remain hidden.

Egypt (167).JPGRising from the ground

the roaring, giant lantern

lifts into the air.

Sammiscribbles Weekend Writing prompt 5-10-19

To escape the icy, dark, raging seas

a lone ship with all her sails lost, flees,

the crew of Her Majesty’s frigate, “Raven,”

in search of a headland, to act as haven.
