Random words of the day: Bin. Spar.
Huzzah! It’s an actual post again! For a fair part of the past week I’ve not been feeling well. I won’t bother you with the details (perhaps some other time ^_~), but in short I was in a state of feeling, blegh (similar to bleh, but different), which went on and off and on again in an unpredictable fashion. As a result the things I wanted and/or needed to do slowed down considerably, or did not happen at all. Thankfully I’ve been feeling a lot better since yesterday, actually got eager to get dedicate myself to, well, all kinds of things with full vigour! Working on my Arabic, cooking actual food again, planning to get back into music, picking up where I left with painting, exercising, working more actively towards my writing/publishing goals… I’ve taken the blegh bringing me down and turned it into a motivator to work on myself and finally do those things I’ve been wanting to do for some time now! And I’ve actually managed to at least make a start on quite a lot of those things! So much even I’ve been feeling rather tired today. Not too tired to work on my weekly writing wonder, though. I vanquished the blegh just in time to get the next installment of The Artist’s Tale done! Huzzah! Let us continue, then, and see where the artist, the gull, the toys and the scorpions will bring us today! ^_^
The Artist’s Tale. Chapter 4
Meanwhile near the chapel’s entrance
Lied the pieces of its gate
A charred trail shaped just like a runway
Ran for many meters straight
At the trail’s end rose a tall spiked ridge
Where the giant gull was seated
Below, among the capsicums
Lied its enemies, defeated
Like the needle of a compass
The bird’s head then turned North
Where, near a cabin, from a bush
Five creatures scuttled forth
There appeared without a sign
Four scorpions, fleet of foot
And a fifth on massive wheels
Emitting dark black soot
“No time to spare!” one of them called
And warily looked ’round
Then placed the bin within its claws
Before it on the ground
