Beasties ‘Tween The Slats

NaBloPoMo, Photo Friday, Photography, Poetry, Postaday, Trifecta Writing Challenge (Archives)


Picnic benches ‘Fall’ dormant,
Tiny termite beasties nestle warm,
‘Tween redwood slats.

Munching mulch aplenty,
Awaiting, anticipating
Wicked over-wintering.

Unseen by humans far below,
Cleaving ‘neath thermal wraps,
‘Round lakeside fire-pits.



Your Trifextra challenge is to write 33 words on a beast in an unusual place. No swamps or forests or caves, we really want you to take your beast out of its comfort zone. – See more at:

I am married to my childhood sweetheart, Bobby, and I am "Grandma" to five amazing boys, ranging in age from 3 to 12; and I am a proud "human" to Bandit, a 3 year-old, very adorable, Blenheim Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. After 45 years as a Professional Engineer and VP and Senior Procurement Executive, I bid adieu to the corporate world. My husband of nearly 49 years, a devoted Educator, is also now retired from professional life, and together we live in Westfield, NJ. We are privileged to embrace this new phase of our lives, with the knowledge that anything is possible.
