Returning from the gym

Sun catching ivy on tree trunks turns it to chain-mail
them into well-armoured sentries
flanking a naked brown spy


  1. Nice image. Interesting that you chose 'spy' rather than 'intruder, miscreant, thief' etc. It tells a whole extra part of the story.

  2. You are very perspicaceous! I originally had soldiers/thief, changed soldiers to sentries and then, anxious to avoid the ceremonial red ones, put in spies.
    Somewhat belatedly it occurs to me that chainmail is not very silent or convenient for that sort of thing, but perhaps the spy was passed onto them and they were escorting him to a place of interrogation ...
