   slowly walk
      grazing off open paths
         a distant bugling call

   hunkered down, still
      open sight

Premium Member SNOW - Acrostrain
Snuggled and hunkered down in winter clothes

Nestled warm in a winter wonderland

Only parts in sight are their eyes and nose

Wee ones out to play who can barely stand

sometimes I wonder
is this a living world?
no movement
no horizon
out on the bay
dog team hunkered down
like fur drifts 
they sleep warm 
as I,
laying back on the sled,
the  glare of

Can charity be only a few coins tossed
in the street? It is another day,
and we are all just as meek and poor 
as the last. Did God hunkered down
in the wet hollow of the soon to be earth
think, They will love me for this, one at least
will love me for this?...

Premium Member Comfy and Cozy
Skies are dark and foreboding
   Winter storm rolls in tonight
Commuters don't need any goading
   Hustle home before moonlight...

Now folks are back from the stores
   Hunkered down with their lovers
All comfy and cozy inside of doors
   Tucked in tight 'neath snow's cover...

Predator Metaphor
Out on the prowl, in my town
The predator, at last hunkered down
Off to the side, in the shade
Where, ever so furtive, it laid...
Until suddenly, out with a  dash!
Ambushed one prey, in a *flash*;
Took a bite out of prey, where it hurts
And from the site of the ambush, departs

Back at the spot, the predator cop
Props, in a snap, a fresh radar trap....

Premium Member Meanwhile back at the ranch
Visibility's dropped to near-zero
   Thermometer's plummeting too
Ocean tempest tossing and turning
   Spraying the nerves of the crew

Deck swabbed by torrential rain
   Passengers hunkered down below
Afternoon's slipped into deep shadows
   Danger's pulse glowers and grows...

Back on shore, weather's sunny
   Gentle breezes, calm and warm
Ignorance is sheerest bliss
   When it comes to cruel ocean storms...

Premium Member As Predicted
The storm came as predicted;
It wasn’t a surprise.
We’d canceled plans as every
Weather forecast did advise.

With lots to keep us busy,
We hunkered down indoors
And even did some online shopping.
(Easier than stores!)

The snow’s still blowing sideways;
The roads have hidden ice
But in our cozy haven
It feels comfortable and nice.

Tomorrow we must travel;
I hope the storm abates.
We’ll wait until the morning
To see what trial awaits.

Reel Life
Celluloid escape magic
to another reel life
perhaps with Sundance and Butch
or was it Mister Tibbs?

Hunkered down in the cool
darkness of an afternoon,
hands all buttery,
rocked within a theatre's cocoon
while learning the meaning of a Classic
or song and dance man,
the terrors of imagination,
mysteries of sea and sky.

Not a mirror of my life
but a myriad of human emotions
evoked by this still affordable luxury
that remains a great escape....

Premium Member Hunkered Down
Hunkered Down Written: by Miracle man 3-26-2020 We currently are facing an uncertain future, nothing like my eighty-one years has seen yet. Wounds beyond closing with staple or suture, providing the world reasons, for many to fret. Let our faith assures us that “this too shall pass” and until that happens we must all hunker down. individually it seems worse for the aging class, prayer won’t cause glower but reduces your frown.

life interrupted by corona
life interrupted by corona 

we live in a strange world
life interrupted by corona 
the virus spread throughout the world
disrupting everything

putting life on hold
as more people
hunkered down
waiting for the virus

to pass over us
like in biblical times
the virus 
will test us all

life interrupted 
on hold 
until the virus
spreads through the world

and then 
we will all
go back 
to life interrupted Daily Dew Drop interruption

Premium Member A Bay Town Storm
Listen to poem:

The eastern gale swept o'er the bay tonight,
As rising seas climbed up the sandy beach,
It pushed and forced its way beyond the bight,
And those who tried to stay, they did beseech,
They boarded in and hunkered down so tight,
Those need of care got aid if in their reach,
The stormy night gave way to calm daylight
Some minor damage said in Mayor's speech,
No deaths had been reported, shed some light,
A wiser lesson learned that storm did teach.
