Snapshot

Capture this moment. Right now.

You can start, but you can’t finish

You need variations in color from Cobalt to Orange.

Layout below the sunset in the warm grass.

Slip your fingers through the air.

Jump into the pond and take a sip.

 

Caress the Dahlia’s petals, the black ones too.

Dip your finger into the sunset and dream.

Carry that dream like a soft summer

Breeze. Don’t think, just dream and

Capture this moment like a

Snapshot.

Night Shadows

Upon the bright star filled midnight

In the darkened shadowed hollow,

Headless horseman Harry poorly

lived, watching the running children,

searching for his missing blonde head.

 

One by one by on they do play,

golden green-eyed  Fay Morringday,

glowing blonde hair Harry did see,

a fair good head to sit upon

Headless Harry’s steady shoulders.

 

By the sunken sun the horseman,

Of the darkened cave did he ride

What is the best cutting method

for easily slicing a neck,

a neck so delicate and pure

 

Only a child, a child so sweet,

slice once and true, double-handed

will do, with blood so tart running.

running down her lovely cream neck,

green-eyed Fay Morringday did die.

 

Mondays

Driving

Just as a kaleidoscope shifts

Our minds brighten, our eyes

sharpen. That definite point, that

peak between two ridges becomes

foreign. We no longer take comfort

in the road signs passing us by, telling

us what’s ahead. Naturally we know, we

have always known its inevitability.
