Words Fill My Mind..

“I think all writing is a disease. You can’t stop it.”
 ~William Carlos Williams

The Imaginary Garden…




























Beach~

rough waves wash my ankles
soothing to tired feet and souls..

searchers dig in wet grains
the tiniest treasure to find...

picnickers pack up.. headed home
weary little ones already napping..

sand castles wait on the night 
melting slowly in the rising tide..

silently I head to my perch..
singing to the ocean from my balcony above..

Escape

twisted stick in hand
grizzled wizard beckons doom ~
sunrise hears his snores...

Mad Kanes  Limerick-Off Monday

Post Limerick ~

A fellow was offered a post
along the Ivory Coast
his laptop was banned
his flight was un-manned
the natives his un-willing hosts

Fable~


I thought I had found prince charming.
He walked away when he saw that my second toe was longer. 
I didn't bother to tell him that he was just a fable.

What a Day..!..

" Nothing is too wonderful to be true if it be consistent with the laws of nature."    - Michael Faraday

= = = = = = =




















Almost Nap Time

the dragon flies dance
courting in the afternoon breeze
slumber would be nice

blackbirds come in pairs
bathing in the peaceful glade
the heavy lids fall

children run squealing
the lacy wings quickly flee
slumber would be nice..

Saturday Centus Week 149~

My Mozelle... 


My grandma always told me
Child.. you should always wear your smile...
Yes.. even on the saddest days
when it hardly feels worthwhile.. 
For a smile can light the darkest day
and help to heal a broken heart..
If no words will come to mind 
a smile's a likely start..
I miss her most this time of year
when the butter cups find bloom..
for it was on a dreary winters day
that her death filled us with gloom...
I try to show a smiling face 
to most everyone I see 
and be the kind of friend to them
that my Grandma was to me...

Sunday Scribblings #358  "monarch"

= = = = = 

Tomorrow

I often fear the best of times
for hard times surely follow

to grasp a soul and fill it full
of a bitter pill to swallow

useless words are whispered low
to fill a heart that's hollow

till darkness dances on it's way 
and sunshine fills the morrow..
