Cerebral Monsters

Prompt: MONSTERS (42 words)

Monsters, thoughts that gnaw

My brain with small razor teeth

Savoring jelly

Sucking honey’d ideas

Tender tissue, tasty peace


Evil cerebral creatures


‘Course I cannot see

How loathsome creatures appear

They’re gaining headway

Taking more territory

Feasting on backs of my eyes

  1. Wow, this is really powerful Rhen. Your writing just shines with these prompts. This one’s imagery is like a “monster”. Love 💕 you my friend. Have a blessed day. Hugs, love and prayers Rhen. Joni 😘🌸🌺


    1. Thanks so much, Joni–your compliments are always heartwarming. And thank you for your prayers always. My manager will be here at noon for me to sign some paperwork, and then I plan to go to bed–as I’ve been up all night again. It’s not all bad news (just the rioting)–I had a wonderful encounter with the Holy Spirit yesterday, which lifted the excessively heavy depression…at least for awhile, and I’m ever grateful for any breaks between battles. So your prayers are gold to to me when I feel overwhelmed, dragging myself from bed, waiting for Jesus’ rescue. He always comes through–but it’s tough going in the middle, as I’m sure you’re you know about. Huge love sent your way!!💖

      1. Oh Rhen I am so glad you are feeling better. Praise God. I prayed for you in church yesterday. You have been on my mind dearest friend. Yes, I do know what it is like to be depressed. I hope you are able to sleep my friend. I cut off my phone when I really need rest. Please don’t watch too much news. The world is in a bad place but God has his sisters and brothers in his protective hands. Love you Rhen. I am glad and grateful you were so blessed yesterday. I wanted to let you know I am thinking about closing my Facebook account for so many reasons. Love, hugs and prayers to you dear friend. Sleep well. 😘🌸🌺❤️ Joni(your sister in Christ Jesus)


        1. Oh dear, did something bad happen with FB? You don’t have to share publicly–I can give you my email if you want. Thank you SO MUCH for praying for me in church–it obviously availed much! Yes, all that has happened recently in the world–it doesn’t cause me fear, just make me so deeply sad. And I don’t watch much news–but it was hard not to when things hit the fan in Seattle. And yes, my phone is always off unless I’m expecting a call–which makes me think, maybe you’d like for us to be able to have occasional phone visits? You can let me know–NO obligation whatsoever, sweet sister. Thank you again–so much love sent to you and Scott ❤

          1. No nothing happened in FB I just think it is extremely public and monitored and manipulated by government entities. I am glad to hear you don’t watch much news. It is depressing and we really are not into to much worldly stuff if we can help it. Rhen look for a private message in FB by tomorrow afternoon. I would love to visit on occasion. After that I think I will just cut off my account. Please rest today I will send private message tomorrow to you. Sleep sweet Rhen. Love 💕 Joni


            1. Oh my…I guess I wasn’t aware of all that you said about FB. I only got it to stay current with the pastors I love–and to maybe get more viewers to my blog posts…small attempt at evangelism, or at least encouragement. Will look forward to your message–love you!
