Memes once monsoons drench the streets

SundayWhirl: listen pressure here orders smoke impossible scare might climb happens  risk voices
Magpie: image on the right
SY: truss; image on the left
3WW: delinquent, hapless, trigger

A Night Out There
Listen. Are those voices you hear?
Is there something that scares here?
Impossible, there is nothing near
Nothing that might put us at risk, dear!

Look! Look at the twirling smoke there
Climbing up over the hill yonder
Could it be the delinquent demon, I wonder
This is definitely not good for my blood pressure

Do not be hasty in trigger pulling
Maybe it is just a hapless squirrel, my darling
That cannot do much harming
If needed, here use this scarf for tying
Truss yourself up to me, my sweetling!

Do not get too worried now, my sweet
That happens to be the demon indeed
Listen to my orders, actually, I plead
Let us watch what he does, silence is now of need!

Letting out a huge yawn, he is now
Look at the size of that yawn, wow
Out escaped a ball of white-yellow jelly
- was trapped in the demon’s belly
And oh! All cried out, in awe and surprise
Look at that – a moon of super-size!

It is raining outside, as has been every evening-well, almost every evening since we arrived - not really since we arrived but definitely since I enrolled my son in a tennis class last week in the evenings. Since then, the rain has arrived promptly about 20 minutes before the class has to start followed by a text from the coach that simply says - 'No tennis today'! The moon outside today is nowhere near a supermoon and I missed seeing it when it did appear over two weeks ago now but thanks to friends and others who captured wonderful images of the supermoon, have viewed it many times over since!

For ABC Wednesday, we have arrived at the letter Z and I absolutely know no one -for the theme I was focusing on -women authors - whose name (first or last) starts with this letter. So to Z and to this round of ABC Wednesday, I say, I am off to get a few zzzzzs until next week.


  1. Yes, they are torch bearers of freedom and liberty, i agree !

  2. Perhaps we need to adopt a pen name with a Z. That would solve that problem. Hope the sun comes out for you today.

    1. true.. pen names with Z will help.. The sun is out most of the is the evenings that the streets get soaked!

  3. Parts of your poem go along with the vignette I wrote, where my intrepid adventurers are about to meet with a very scary goddess in a jungle clearing.
    I like the squirrel!

  4. OK, I'm disappointed you didn't pick Zelda Zephyr, a fine, if fictional writer I just made up.


    1. Next round of ABC Wednesday :) I can use that for fine fictional writers who are fictional themselves:) and Zelda Zephyr sounds like a wonderful writer..

  5. Very ambitious to handle so much in one entry. Kudos.

    1. thank you!!
      though I have to admit that my ambitions rise based on how lazy i was before.. the more memes I skip,the more I try to do together since I love them all!:)

  6. Love it! I'm glad he belched Luna out of his belly, it must have stunk in there. I really enjoyed your ending.

  7. Nicely done. Maybe next round you'll come up with a different Z.
