A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

😵

"

A wild windstorm wrecked havoc

Bashing, crashing, knocking out power

To repair the damage

Doomed me to a late hour

 

The flashlight wouldn’t flash

The battery was (surprise!!!) dead

Through black, blown, blustering trees

By my nose I’d be led

 

Wrecking, wild wind, whipped branches

On this dark dirty wet night

It howling, prowling through deep woods

Caused me no delight

 

On the edge of the raging creek

Blindly, untimely, tripping over a boulder

As I felt myself about to fall right in  

Something grabbed my shoulder

 

A massive hand, covered with thick hair

Powerfully, pulled me from harm

In night’s black, I thought I saw

With that huge hand, a thick hairy arm

 

When I managed the power back on

I lit up the dark night

Piercing probes went through deep forest

But, nothing was in sight

Yeti rescues are becoming all too more frequent these days... I am beginning to think they are feeling sorry for humanity! I suppose watching us kill ourselves must be getting boring for them:/

I suppose the upside of that is, it is giving them a bit more living space

Spooky biscuits is what it is. I’ll keep this one in mind the next time I think I’m having a bad day, but at least he was a friendly Sasquatch. Knowing my luck I’d get the one who likes the taste of Scotch 😀

Okay Dave ... that hairy arm sounds like sasquatch for sure ... or a mother-in-law. ;>}

Good story line.
Keep safe.

Yeah, the cases seem to be on the rise ... but not so much the hospitalizations or deaths.

Check for huge big footprints around and follow where they lead. Maybe Sasquatch or perhaps the Yeti...I'd be scared of going out to repair those faulty power lines. What if he hadn't had dinner...?

The southern version of Sasquatch must've been here, as well. Once again this morning's poems (yours & mine) display our uncommon west coast synchronicity! My imagination was pumped & on overtime as well, scribbling mindless mind bolts from the dark, using a teensy flashlight & notepad. I need to stock up on batteries, since we've had multiple outages, hours long, for a month. Misery loves company. Now it's our first almost-freezing morning & my woodstove blaze is barely moving the needle in here! BRRRR! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
