the drizzle dissipates -
scent of pink roses

--gillena cox

fog over the roofs –
my new diary’s paper

-- Stella Pierides

sleeping through
the silence of snow
waking with the plough

-- Adelaide

wrapped up
in this Christmas gift, too
his love for me

packing away
the Christmas decorations...
another year without her

--Kirsten Cliff

sweet steelpan sounds
rehearsing day and night
carnival coming

--Keith Simmonds

moral hearts
bar the paths of evil
twelve days

...Well; like i said before, and i'm saying again, it was an unusually rainy December, when, Anansi awoke one morning in an unusually bad mood, or so he thought. Anyways; it was an unusually cold kitchen (in the tropical island of Trinidad) in which cooking oil slowed to an eeire hot stillness in the large family frying pot, or so he thought, into which the radiant Mrs Anansi was dropping evenly formed bits of white flour dough, making fried bakes, or so he thought; for he the unusually grumpy Anansi didn't feel like getting out of bed even to have breakfast, or so he thought. And this is how it all started...THE END
(story of) 'Anansi - An Unusual Experience' © gillena cox 2012

My inspiration for writing 'Anansi - An Unusual Experience' came from reading, and viewing so many movie variations, of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

revisit 5 Jan 2012
