Monster




hunk of ugliness

silent
hunk of ugly
presence

disturbing
chameleon

a shape shifter

at the bottom of my garden
my private garden


my garden
where my seasons hopefully attract life

where I try to balance
my sunshine
and rain

where I try to keep 
their 
smoke and mirrors 
at bay

So,e times something is so ugly it kind of has its own perverse beauty to it...maybe this hunk has its own silent quality?

trying to keep the mirrors at bay...the garden where the seasons attract life...nice...and really an interesting direction where you took this

Gemma I really enjoyed this, the disturbing chameleon
a shape shifter, what indeed does his 'ugliness' say to the new life that enters...or perhaps they are use to him :-)

Gemma I did like this - the shape shifter the ugliness of the rock that would detract new life..or perhaps they are use to it.. and from the Beatles song 'let it be'.

This is really cool... a dark disturbance in your private place of solitude... interesting take on the prompt for sure...and great drawing too!

Oh, this ugly monster can be such an eyesore. But, love the way you trying to keep mirrors at bay---absorbing read! Beautifully penned, Gemma.

I sense there is more to this story than meets the eye. A very interesting write!

I like the cadence here and why do I suspect you might have pests or monsters in the form of nasty slugs?

What a creative way to use the prompt. I can relate as my garden is my labor of love and can have some nasty intruders.
