The Ambitious Drifter

Words, Images and The Occasional Noise



Tell us a story — fiction or non-fiction — with a twist we can’t see coming.    Photographers, artists, poets: show us SURPRISE.

In this flower – sir
Lurks a mon-ster
Dont put your nose too near
Though I think-  sir
He thinks –  sir
That we’re the ones to fear.


I printed this and kept a copy on my desk. One day, looking closely, I saw my monster.

  7. Love this picture, and the poem works perfectly (especially because, for some reason, I read it in a small spider’s voice!).
