  2. Hey Sammi C, Namaste 🙂

    A new weekend rolls into town and this an extended version of the last, which prompts me to say ‘Happy Eostre’, and wish you chocolate bunny indulgence and Simmel cake delight 🙂

    A really interesting photograph to tease and confuse the eye 🙂 ‘Glimpse’ is a great word to use for the image…indeed I imagine a few readers will also be baffled as I was by the object protruding over the rocks. It’s a dramatic perspective and I suddenly feel very small like a nervous snail…

    ~ Glimpse ~ By ~ Dewin Nefol ~

    No more than a glimpse and yet quite certain,
    I must not breathe or the moment will worsen,
    I must not move or else be eaten!
    Smashed to smithereens ripped from my shell:
    A one-way ticket on a journey to Hell!

    Another happy poem to add to the pure enjoyment of writing lol 🙂

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Namaste 🙂

      • Hey Sarah, Namaste 🙂

        Happy Easter! Should you be celebrating this weekend I hope chocolate has featured somewhere in your plans or on your agenda? 🙂

        Thank you for enjoying my scribble…I thought the photograph ominous and threatening: that it demanded a change of perspective whilst fear beaded on my brow. Snails just happen to be topical in my thoughts at this time 🙂

        Enjoy a wonderful week. Take care of one and all 🙂

        Namaste 🙂



      • Hey Sammi, Namaste 🙂

        As would I be very nervous indeed and yet such danger is all part-and-parcel of a snail’s slow-paced swashbuckling adventure: snails tweak the nose of fear and laugh bravely in the face of adversity. They are marauders of the garden, pirates of the flower-bed, outlaws and renegades, mercenaries for hire: loner’s with spiralled-shells always searching for the one elusive garden called Paradise and the legendary Golden Lettuce 😀

        Namaste 🙂
