Amphorae

wine bottles
      seem so small

   after you have 
seen amphorae.


civilization is such 
      a big surprise.

all it takes to tame
   troupes of
frantic monkeys 

is sufficient alcohol.


   amphorae do look 
interesting in a way.

cool shapes.

(comforting somehow)

frantic monkeys do
      love their comfort.


fear the pandemic,
   it can damage 
our feeble brains.

      already we are
woefully underpowered.

save my cpu!

Storm Light

Storm Light

Dark skies,
driving
rain in a
windstorm.

Shipwreck
just avoided,
feet on
solid ground.
Dripping dry,
we waited.

Small adventures,
as darkness
came down
from cloudy skies.
We celebrated
her survival,
and just
in time.

Back home,
watchful
of a new
pandemic.
Danger and
adventure
followed
us home
to shelter
with us
in our
not much
safer life.
