Old Wooden Claw

The temperature was falling
As Old Wooden Claw
Lurched through the forest
While the village folk said
To their kinders in bed
Stay safe under your covers
And don't lose your head
For Old Wooden Claw
Is out there in the night
Looking for his next victim
With his claw made of driftwood
And his face ghostly white

In the tavern by the crossroads
An old man sat hooded
And listened to the stories
On that dark starry night
As he drank his rye whiskey
Old Wooden Claw sighed
Ignoring those townsfolk
As the screech owl cried
And he left there at midnight
To lurch his way home
Where his lair in the grotto
Was all littered with bones

Under Saturn on Torkumand Temple

Out of ruins rose
From ice fields there
On frozen seas from which they welled
Their brightest blue
Green abutments shone
Under the starlit skies where were skewed
All a 'kilter on
The horizon hung
Saturnian rings filtered soaring aglow
The spire alighted
With icicles and snow
Our titanium ice tools slung and hung low

Pray crystalline peroxide
Seracs do stay glued
Tenuously attached in a swirled purple hue
Up Torkumand Temple
I swung on my tools
We were shrouded in curtains of blue
Up twelve hundred meters
To geysering summits
Swapping our leads and our oxygen tanks
On the final headwall
At a sheltering portal
We retreated expressing our thanks

Beneath us the temple
Shuddered and quaked
As tumbling blocks fell right past my face
While far up above
Gushing voluminous
Liquids and gasses erupting to space
This living volcano
Of Enceladus ice
This Torkumand Temple frozen and shone
Was far taller now
Than when we began
As we steeled for the long journey home

sO NOT KEEPING UP
So not keeping up,
The Baseball? Ugh!
thats been the local deal
in the suburban red sox hood
Where the ones who hate the New York teams
are plagued
having to rest as the rest of Us
try to stay awake through 13 innings

I am a poor baseball fan, I nod off and miss the moments, not this time;
The pitch was in the center of the strike zone.
the batter didnt even flinch - that was not a batter hit it was the third strike fer x sake!
im hung over and it shows

third thing to give shout about but its what ive got to add , ive not added much ^^ that goes without saying
Hows Norwegian?


On a more Orwellian note this worlds leaders are no joke, this fool has been recruited to doom all democratically run countries to suffer from the greedy mavens of the power of the possisions to enslave the masses
enslave the masses more thanthe bean counters have already arranged.




Hmmm? Thats what I thought , I yhink its 50/50 and the camera is for shite too V V V V

Try that shot at a faster speed with more shadows?

It's good like it is, but there's room for a lot more variations, Gnome.

And hold it still as you can if you don't use a 'pod.
Pod persons.  They know how to poddy.

it was a nice day for animal sightings ... my first gray fox.

i was perched on a short rim and it came out of a cubby hole about 20-30' straight below me like a train.
sporting a long plain gray back followed by what seemed like a longer tail with a black dorsal stripe.
casually walked straight out for quite a ways, then stopped and looked at me over his shoulder,
we both made a study of it, what a nice face framed in cinnamon, the fox i mean.
it moved on just as casually till it slipped behind a bushy tree.

i googled this one into range with a mouse

then there was the road runner. moving fast from right to left across my path. they always make my day

Though I no longer imbibe...

The Not So Oblivious Squiff

Never you mind
The fragrant squiff
With shoulders slouched
Who reeks of spliff
No major deal
It's not as if
It's a capitol offense
Or causes a riff

It's only freedoms
End result
Like youth a bored
Raucous insult
Who does not hear
Our sage consult
Nor cares what method
To exult

So let it be
Let celebrate
A quest or need
To inebriate
A mind and body
To conjugate
A personal choice
Let's not forget

So pay no heed
To the stoned out squiff
Who's core value
Is live and let reef
Whose dreams might transcend
Old Toby's leaf
From innocent youth
To beyond belief
