About Me

My photo

My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Haiku Doldrums

Prompt Theme: Doldrums 

Slumped and sluggish                                                     I'm in low spirits
Mind, body and soul stagnates                                      Feeling quite dull and drowsy
I'm in the doldrums                                                          Wading through treacle.


One bored young boy named Milo
A story unfolds.


Lethargarians,
Small creatures who nap a lot
Live in the Doldrums

Depression takes hold
Creativity stagnates
Must crawl my way out.


From the Phantom Toll Booth animation:




The Doldrums exist
In our minds and in the world
On the Equator


Equatorial                                                         
Calm winds meet to neutralise 
The Northern region


Sudden storms and winds
In the Atlantic Ocean
The Doldrums region 



Lethargic and sad
Seasonally affected

Then the sun comes out
