Milky morn vanquished by the sluicing firmament- Man Incognito slides along gritty pavement.
A lapse in the torrent, and he is a blur before me, blank in the vacant street. I recede deeper into the sliding grey shadows that bleed down from the eaves.
Bullets of mercury rain ricochet upon the fissured sidewalk.
Stooped beneath that drooping, dripping checked fedora, he is hazy-still.
His nose is glinting sharp, dark glasses flecked with rain-
Looming before me like a condor.
His unseen eyes gawp into me from the drear, and there is a flitting moment of strange Recognition- as the sun struggles to dissolve the steel-mesh above.
Then comes the drowning deluge, and he glides on, scrambling after the Darkness, leaving splinters of misty rainbow in his tracks.
Holy crap, I LOVE this one! Beautiful imagery, poetic and lyrical. You are so talented. Thanks for sharing.
Aloha! Oh why thank you, what a deeply gruntling comment!! Always a tremendous joy every time you flit by! Haha, I really had fun putting this lil’ one together. I am so glad it was enjoyed, marvelous 😀 Thank you for sluicing by!
Many smiling, effervescent cheers,
Wow! This gave me the shivers. Marvelous writing indeed.
Oh good! I had a lot of fun with this wee one. It was raining outside and that always inspires the dreary lil’ Irish imp to leap out and write. Grins,
A fleeting moment of strange Recognition…. goose bumps. You set this one up beautifully. I am going to enjoy wandering through your blog.
Oh thank you very much!! I am most gruntled you enjoyed this little piece. Thank you for your groovy comment. Many exuberant cheers,
What !!!!!!!!!!!! ???????? !!!!!!!!!!!! 😉
What-ho, what-ho, dear Ralph??!!! 😀
P.S. Do you not agree that I take oh so terribly flattering photos of dear Sir?? Why, I think these fine portraits are the very best I have ever snapped. Identical to the real thing. Many cheers, thank you for dripping by, dear Ralph 😉
What-ho AJ my sweet 😉 His Sir seen these yet ?? Maybe not. They are too flattering for him to come to terms with 😉
Poor naive Ralph…I am afraid “sweet” is not the word you want for this imp. Just look at this torture I put Sir through as I happily warped and distorted these photos-
Poor blighter, wondered what in the ocean was I doing when I pulled up a normal-looking portrait (well, he was wearing bright, lemon-rimmed women’s style shades in the photograph, but I dare say, they looked smashing on him!) on the laptop screen, proceeded to cover the keyboard and then spritzed the screen with water. (Meanwhile, sly Felines in the background of this saga froze, winced, and then heavily suspired, relieved I was not spritzing them for surreptitiously trying to use modem as a cat-sauna.) He buzzed at me as I then snapped a shot of the H2O studded screen with a flash. I have no idea what I was trying to do, but I was having fun (I fear stirring Sir up being the most fun of all, oh dear!), so there you have it. Not a sweet. Bottom one was done in a similar fashion, as a bulbous-eyed victim, I mean Sir, exclaimed at me, and then rambled on about inspectors, ending in incomprehensible subdued murmuring. Poor Sir- it is an abomination what I put him through…
I so appreciate your comments dear wonderful Ralph. Thank you ever so much for oozing by and gracing me weathered olde blog with your sweet presence. Many grins,
You are very welcome my friend. I’ll be back many times. Ralph xox 😀
It is an honour 🙂
