Our friend the Monkey Man, who may just be catching for the Red Sox before the day is out, (send your resume c/o Theo Epstein, Fenway Park, Yawkey Way, Boston, MA, 02130)has opened the Friday 55 Challenge gates. My entry is called "New Day", and is, of course, loosely based on Days One, Two, and Three of Wyatt Christopher Couchoud's long life.
Tiny eyes squint into bright light.
Sound everywhere, no longer muffled.
Cold-so much cold air after weeks of warmth.
Everything shockingly new and different.
Held, passed, prodded, measured.
Sleep-sudden, blessed relief, then new faces.
What now? What new feeling, new sight, new sound?
Everything a blur, surrounded by love and light.
Who are these people?
