charged with dark charms of mystery

the 11 of 12 given words:
splashedhouse, moved, moments, harm 
darkdown, pleasure, cups, tea, aloud,

came on suddenly splashed on the rafters
could well imagine that height of a big wave
the house shook moved but then of no bother
but such moments struck of situations unsafe

a random pick of nature's choice of entry
laid bare to harm's way pending destruction
but charged with dark charms of mystery
deep down in bewildering shock of confusion

could it be the pleasure of cups of tea
to sink to levels of debilitating realization
where shouting aloud in a sense of urgency
anticipating a demise in watery acquiesce

resolute of his situation outwardly dazed
with strains of music that roared of oceans
He was soon borne away by the waves
and lost in darkness and distance  -  Frankenstein, Mary Shelley

  1. Nice line: "a random pick of nature's choice of entry"

  2. I feel the danger and I wonder about the random pick of nature's choice of entry. Is it really random? I hope nature will be gentle on us.

  3. Nature has a way of randomly causing havoc... but I do know it's mostly kinder than us.

  4. Nature and human nature can cause such havoc.

  5. Nature sure is going to win, no matter what humans think.

  6. I always find it fascinating to see the elements have their way. Living by the sea is a great example of who is in control...and it is not us!
