Wednesday Words: Dennis

Dennis lives his entire life beneath a self-imposed umbrella, cutting off the rest of the world.  

Silence reigns, attacking his sanity.  

The tang of his silent life is bitter, almost effervescent in its taste and smell.  

Seeing the world hustle and bustle beyond him, Dennis struggles from encasement, as if gum hardens into a resin shell after as it drops upon his personal aegis.


P. S.  Many thanks to Delores at thefeatherednest for providing "Wednesday Words".  This week was a real challenge!  Please visit her site where other participants are provided!

  2. I know people like that. They are so afraid to take part in life and feel safe in their own little box.

  5. It may have been difficult, but you did a great job with it and I couldn't tell you struggled a bit (no one would ever know if you didn't mention it). I think it's very nicely done.

  6. Dennis needs to close his umbrella and let the sunshine or rain pour down on his head.

  8. Hi Susan,

    Actually, the way you incorporated those words have elements of truth in my world.

    Be well, my friend.
