Sunday 160.....

.

.
Naked, tired, preparing for the Winter onslaught
once again. Not really knowing if you have the strength
to endure until the Vernal Renewal. Survival isn't easy.

.

Monkey Man has a weekly writing exercise called
Sunday 160. Write a poem or story in exactly 160
characters, then post it on your blog. Then go tell him.
You may find him .......Here!
See you Monday.....G

Galen, this is truly poetry. You are not writing a "little nonsense" so stop the self deprecation and continue to show more skin....heehee.

you wrote an amazing piece here.

indeed it's not but the trees certainly are the great survivors and witnesses to more seasons than we can imagine.

It's not easy but it's what we all strive for so therefore worth the effort. ;)

Trees so inspire with their harsh reactions to winter's on set. Great 160, G. Thanks for playing along.

Naked, tired .. wonderful descritpion, I loved this.

PattiKen said...

It's that inner strength that gives them the ability to stand naked through the onslaught. I suspect that you have that in spades, Galen, but please, keep your clothes on. ;-)

Claudia said...

Not only to survive the cold and starvation of winter, but to have enough left over to bud in the Spring! OTOH, you could be like the trees around here and put a little antifreeze in your veins and make your leaves into needles.

Mine's about trees as well, only about their death in the name of progress. I like yours better because at least there's hope come spring.

Jingle said...

it is the time before spring comes...
bear it.
insightful 160.
Hope you well, G-man.

LOVE your poetry, Galen. I can picture you as a little boy running across the field to that tree, already a poet, one with the wind and the world.

I like winter probably about as much as a tree does. Nice 160 :)
