SURPRISE… a poem

Even though he was timid

She had captured his heart

Never had he been moved this way

He wanted her close right from the start

################

She had a way so gentle

When he touched her she moaned with delight

Cuddling was all but a given

As he would sleep with her every night

Boy in Black V-neck Shirt With Looking Straight to the Camera With a Shocking Face Expression

So, turning to his mom and dad

He begged with tears in his eyes

“Please, oh please, can I have this sweet puppy?”
“Of course!  It’s your birthday surprise!”

View Master

Image result for original view master

The view master found its protagonist.  He was draped in a myriad of colors, and was chasing around and around.  Just a sliding shuffle and click away from another heroic scene.  What adventure awaits?  Who would become the antagonist to this adventurous soul?  Ah, but isn’t that what the wheel of fate has in store for each of us.  We spin and shuffle through life hoping to load the next adventure and scene that will be better than the last.

Stop!  Get out of the loop and live.  We only have so many spins in this life, and it seems the more that pass the faster we go through the next set.  Just a thought…

Unfurled… a dark poem

A menagerie of melancholy emotions

Confounds the dreamless state of mind

A whirlwind of images lost at sea

While storm clouds scamper by

Incarcerated within unscalable walls

Hiding away from the world

A conscious that’s broken and can’t be repaired

My demented state – unfurled

Fantasy, Composing, Mystical, Surreal, Dream, Mysticism

SHADOWS… a poem

A candlelight halo

Showed me the way

So, eerie the light

With its ethereal sway

Goblins and ghosts

Sprang to my mind

As I make my way down

To the basement to find

Scurrying creatures

Casting shadows on walls

woman holding lit candle on grey candle holder

I take a deep breath

And rethink my cause

Perhaps on the morrow

When the sun shines its light

I will finish my chore

‘Cause, I’m done for tonight
