What lurks within

This week, cruising through various blog posts, we discovered the 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups — Week *35 and Gram decided to accept the challenge.  If you would like to join her, click on the link above.  As you know if you follow this blog, poetry is difficult for Gram, but she has chosen to give it a go.  If you want to know the significance of the red box, see the Challenge Website.


What lurks within


The Red box

Pandora’s twin?

What lurks within?


Eyes boring

Seeking to know

What lurks within.


His hands clutch

Closer to hide

What lurks within.


It’s now time

To look and see

What lurks within


Open wide

Eyes look inside

What lurks within?


The Red box?

A twin indeed

That lurks within.

Did you notice the structure of the poem? 

What else makes you know Gram wrote this and not Imma?

Do you recognize the double meaning of this poem with regards to Gram and Imma?

  1. I don’t know much about poetry but the sound of the words made me thing of a drum beat on every third line. I still don’t know what lurks within. I didn’t get the double meaning. Have much to learn.

    All that said, I liked the poem.

    • Good stuff:) I didn’t think of the drum beat thing, but I like it. I don’t know what lurks within either lol. The red box is something the PM of the UK carries the budget in. So, depending on whether you like it or not, ….. No stress about double meanings. Sometimes they only make sense to the writer because the writer has information others may not have. I’m glad you came by and gave it a shot 🙂 Angie

  2. I enjoyed the flow of this, and the repeating line, what lurks within. Nice touch with the box within a box, isn’t that pretty much what life is? Each discovery leading to another mystery.

    • I like that Judee 🙂
