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:

After 45 years as a Professional Engineer in Pharma and Construction , Vice President & Chief Procurement Officer for a global tech company, I bid 'adieu' to the corporate world. Married 48 years ago to my childhood sweetheart, and "Grandma" to five amazing boys, ranging in age from 3 to 12, I'm a doting "human" to Bandit, an adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Hubby, a recently 'un-retired' and ever devoted Educator, and I live in Westfield, NJ, where we raised our family and have easy access to the 'boys' and their never-ending sports and school events. I find self-expression through family, music, writing, creative arts and photography. Life is good and each day an amazing new opportunity!
