Puzzling Enigma ... What is it ?

Puzzling Enigma

 

Fascinating

Unable to tear my eyes away from this strange droning object.

Buzzing

I was captured, hypnotized by its noisy sound and colourful movement.

Vibrating

wildly spinning cogs interlocking vivid blurs of bright greens and yellows.

Whirring

Three shiny red wheels shuddered and chugged around their unsteady axles.

Gyrating

It almost toppled over with its tumbling swaying awkward rolling gait.

Wobbling

This chattering mechanism lumbering across the floor towards me.

Rattling

Blue googly eyes rolled alarmingly, frightening in yellow globe sockets.

Swivelling

Cold hard body brushes my toe, spasmodically flinching away my foot.

Scaring

Lip trembling with nervousness, glistening tears well up in anxious eyes.

Quivering

Raising arms up to the heavens supplicating, pleading for help, imploring.

Weeping

Loving hands reaching, holding, carrying to safety.

Cuddling

Protected snuggling within reassuring arms.

Comforting

Consoling, “did the nasty toy scare you.”

Chuckling

Tickling fingers making me giggle.

Forgetting

Toying toy.

Smiling

Is it a spinning top? I like how you tell the story through such young eyes, we forget how we feel when we are so small.

I liked this very much
