In Tandem - "A Parental Warning"

Artwork courtesy of Jinksy for "In Tandem"

A Parental Warning

Baby hold tightly this month of May
as Savanna's rivers run swiftly. 
Forget not, its death force
 can carry you far away!
Cling to me as we quench our thirst,
with its life-giving coolness.
Remember, my little baboon,
it's a jungle out there.

It DOES look like a baboon with a baby, right?  Give it a try yourself.  Click HERE to be transported to "In Tandem #17", a weekly artistic prompt for you to write poetry or short prose to.

I see your baboon, now I look, but I saw flying angels originally! Isn't imagination a fascinating tool? ♥ Thanks for hopping on the Tandem...

G-Man said...

Don't go out tonight
Cause it's bound to take your life
There's a Baboon on the rise!

Jinksy - thanks for the prompt! I love the colors in the artwork... I've turned it around a couple of times and don't see angels... I 'll have to ask my girls tomorrow if they do.

G-Man - I just got back from Winston-Salem ... I think I will take a risk with the Baboon's over the CRAZY drivers on the road at night!

I looked at this. but chickened out. You have shown me up, a superb interpretation of an intriguing visual.
