“……Save us from that snorting and growling!”


“……Save us from that snorting and growling!”




So now all filled and thrilled our friends do lean

On rocks in mock of bugs in rugs so snug

All friends, all fed, now thinking to preen

Without a care one last drink to chug.





“What, what, bot, bot?” did Crookeye and Bushy disclaim.

“What means such snorts and growls on the prowl?”

Did even Crow and Ugly flap in wonder not so tame.

“How canst Rainbow Light have faded with this howl?”





“Quick, quick, slide under this shelf,” bleated dear Littley Lamb.

So scarce awake did friends roll and squeeze and tug under ledge.

“What, what, ye bot-bots?  scrape ye selves back, back, bam, bam!”

Did Lambey push all friends into glinting hug of Rainbow Fly.

      Bishop, you could not have paid me a higher compliment. I do not want to copy Tolkien; I just want to update and carry on what he started. The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit are right next to the Bible for me! Thank you SO MUCH!

      Claudia, with your love of dragons, I just knew you would enjoy Bluesey Dragonfly becoming Rainbow Fly and “glinting” these critterly friends into safety in unexpected places and times.

    You know that I love “cozy” Rose, so your first verse reminded me exactly of “cosiness” among family and friends, but then, I also love your last loving line of protection and safety~xx

    So they our loved ones, all drunk on the the light and and warmth of Bluesy the Rainbow fly all tipsy tospy with food ,drink and Joy! Relaxed! But that is when the whoknowswhat come a creeping and prowling snarling and a growling ! Tis a test why the he sends these tests I knows not but the One he do!!
    Littly Lamb out gentle hero of Advent is up and arranging his crew he knows what to do!Old Crow and Ugly Bird flying round squarking and a crawing making big noise to hide their ignorance and fear of the situation! Noise make noise posture make posture we might frighten the whoknowswhat away!
    Gently lovingly Blusey Rainbow fly, from he does not where ,finds huge strength to gather up his full size and cover all friends and winged ones with his rainbow light and love and suddenly all our travellers our loving tribe are bathed in warmth and reassurance that can only come from the One.
    The whoknowswhat does not know what it has taken on!

      No, the “whoknowswhat” certainly does not know the incredible power of these connected critterly friends, drawn by more and more light and more and more “color” on their lives together! Love this commentary-addition to the post here today, willowdot. Blessings on you always, dear lady!

    Great as always Rose. I Love the Lord of the Rings. The movies were great, and I read the books long ago!

    Rose! The light is cannot be broken or beaten by any howl. Only night can put the light to bed. But, we have faith that it will return in the morning.

      Weeping at night but joy in the morning: right, Peter? Wonderfully insightful comment on how much the light is “quested” on this journey and the true nature of that “Light”, my brother! Thank you!

    The best type of hug … push all friends into glinting hug of Rainbow Fly

    There are snorts and growls in the world, and we all need a rainbow fly to give us a glittering hug–even if we must be pushed to receive it.

    I was confronted with some ‘snorting and growling’ just a few days ago…still ringing in my ears…so thank you for pushing me into this ‘glinting hug’. What better cure all could there be?

      Ah, Diane, it is nigh-on to impossible to escape all growlingl and snarlings and snortings in this world, is it not? But those glinting hugs, full of rainbow-promises, just sweep us right on past all that “guff” and further along the pathway to Light, do they not?
