Sunday Whirl given words:
chill courage link matter letters
minute urge trip risk traffic 

Look in my eyes
Does it give you a chill
A stern and piercing look
That sees through you
and not at you

It takes courage to link
a matter conveyed not
through letters but whispers
of the oceans

Minute in sounds but hazy
not rightly audible with that
lingering monotony

Is it to urge a trip at great
risk uncertain of the traffic
across the blue yonder
Does one feel safe on a cruise
ship in the deep ocean
Is it safe for a non-swimmer?

It gives a chill, yes!

  1. Ha--I would not have thought of a cruise ship as being chilling for a non-swimmer--(I swim)--but I'm sure it is--there is a fun energy here, Hank. k.

  2. Everything has a chilling effect to some it seems, those eyes are a bit creepy

  3. George's work gave me a chill and not a good one.

    Well done.

  4. Those eyes follow you every way you go

  5. Those creepy eyes made me wonder....?!

  6. When people see through you it can either be a glow or a chill...i certainly felt the chill here..nicely penned!
