Monkey on Your Back


This Glass on our lanai makes me smile wide

Its contents are pure with a lightly sweet scent 

The vibrant yellow center is reminiscent of the sun

Its white petals are so delicate and velvety, five altogether

The similarly coloured monkey watches over it carefully

I wonder what it’s like to be a plumeria with a monkey on your back?!

    You definitely have a way with words.

    Interesting response to the word prompt “Glass”.

    Good job.

      Well…I like to keep things interesting, hopefully.

      And, you are right that laptops are pretty reasonable these days…hope it all works out when the time comes to buy one. Considering all the setbacks you’ve had, you are doing well just the same in keeping connected:-).
