Secure Advantage


Secure Advantage

To pacify that sense of damp
when you’re called upon to camp,
and after hours of climbing toil
you’re forced to sleep on soggy soil,
heartier souls won’t think to mock
if you perch upon a rock
and declare yourself the sentinel.
You’ll sense the danger and ring a bell.
And if by chance a rain just fell
a side advantage you might get
is you’ll be dry while they’re all wet!!!

The prompt words are mock, pacify and damp. Here are the links:
For the Ragtag prompt of “damp.”

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Haha — as I read this, we are having a thunderstorm! The second rain this week, and the first two since May — remnants of Hurricane Sergio! Big wet drops of water falling from the sky!
