Merry Christmas

From the Monkey Man family to all of you - a very Merry Christmas.

Tuesday, December 22, 2009


Quietly it churns.

Grinding through old memories,

real or imaginary.

Real are discarded.

Imaginary are embellished.


Given fangs and claws

that will tear

at its creator.


Ever churning.

Rest and silence be damned.

Winter's Fog

The fog rode in
on the back of winter's cold,
piercing with its icy chill
any warmth it could find.
Disfiguring all in its path
with an enveloping blur.
Monochrome reigned.
Stealing color
as it rolled over the countryside.
Feathers fluffed.
Hair on ends.
Heat - a precious commodity
with frozen fog ravaging the land.

Stopping the flow - A Sunday 160

The usually rapid stream
flowed slowly.
Bogging down
by unseen forces.
Ever slower,
then finally halting.
Dammed by
the on rush itself.
Mall exits at Christmas.


This is a Sunday 160.
Take the 160 Challenge if you dare.
