WARRIOR STEP
Though moon be full and bright, like orbs of one-eyed monsters to sight, and scent of jasmines ride the waves, of night's silence in heaves, still they chip, snip and carry; knowing, sensing, choosing the reds rather than the yellows. Step purposefully lass! they can pinch at your manicured toes, they aim to make you scream. They can steal your joy, but only, if you let them.

Blog hopping today with
Imaginary Garden With Real Toads
Of Angels and Monsters


Note
In T&T, we call the leaf cutter ants - Bachacs

Given seven pop culture quotes that have to do with angels, monsters or both. Rommy challenged us to pick one and create a poem based on it; the poem does not have to specifically be about an angel or a monster, but it must have some relation to at least one of the quotes.
I chose
“I’m the thing monsters have nightmares about.” – Buffy the Vampire Slayer.


Enjoy The Music

  2. Those little monsters do love sweet scented plants (and biting unguarded toes).

    I can smell the jasmine... and remember a sting or three.
