What do you see # 95 – August 16th, 2021

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a pirate with treasure chest on one open page of a book and a ship on the other. Random alphabets are scattered in the space in between.


They’re shouting across the pages
The words get scrambled in the air
Letters lingering like dust particles
The old sea dog
trying to guard his ill-gotten gains
His is a figment of the writers imagination
He has stood sword in hand for ten years
Will stand, as long as the pages last
So, turn each one carefully
Less the blade catch your finger…
