Trifextra: Week Ninety-One – It’s Among the Leaves


I sense it as I sip.

My lips brush past it.

The most sinister of beasts.

It’s watching.

Its claws at the ready

Momentarily I pause.

Its there, below, among the leaves.

    A foreshadowing perhaps?

    Brewing in the morning-what a beast!Loved the scary dip in this steamy cup from you:-)

    • Hello and welcome to my blog, thank you for that comment.

      • atrm61 says:

        :-)Thanks for the welcome-hopefully you will enter Trifecta this week and further so that I get to read your work and maybe know you too, Summer:-)

      • Thanks and you are most welcome. Hope to see you again. I don’t always do the Trifecta but this one was one I couldn’t resist.

      • atrm61 says:

        Oh I see-am a regular and usually try to read and comment on all pieces:-)

      • I write on a number of challenges but if the challenge doesn’t interest me i do not do it. Do you try the Haibun challenge?

      • atrm61 says:

        That’s a mark of a true writer-I have only started writing in English(not my native language)since last Dec ,so I am still practicing,lol! I did start writing Haiku very recently-don’t think can handle anymore just now-my friend Pirate did tell me about it but it seems too tough for me:P

      • You have to pick and choose. There is a good one called Friday Fictioneers, 100 words you might like to manage. But you will improve your English with practice and by doing only what you can manage

      • atrm61 says:

        True:-)Yes I have heard about FF & seen a few on my blog feed but my problem is not about writing so much but about reading,commenting and responding too-just seem to have that kind of time and I feel very guilty if someone is kind enough to read and comment& I fail to return the favour-so am limiting myself -at the moment-thks for the help:-)

      • It is wise to do only what you can is easy to try too much.

  13. This is creepily awesome! Well done!
