Imagination Land

Witches, warlocks, fairies and gnomes
Unicorns, rainbows and pots of gold

Mystical beast of every shape and size
Some breath fire and some of them fly

Castles, dragons and magic beans
Even peter pan makes the scene

All the creatures talk, even the ants
They talk with nature and all her plants

Laughing, playing stories of wonder
There’s a melody in the rain and thunder

All the streets are paved in gold and glitter
They even have a chocolate sauce river

If you wish to believe, then take my hand
Off we go to imagination land

The water fairies and me
(inspired by a child and her imagination)

Little water fairies dancing all around
Little bad ass fairy moves, they really get down
Walking on the water, zipping here and there
Throwing lots of fairy dust up in the air
A little fairy band plays a song
All the little fairies sing along

I made a noise, they stopped to look and see
Then they began to fly around me
They said hello and invited me to stay
To eat some fairy food then sing, dance and play
Thier overwhelming happiness spreads like fire
Before I knew it, I was singing with the choir

Flying here and there zipping all around
Picking wild flowers and passing them around
I looked in the water, my reflection looked at me
They covered me in glitter and gave me fairy wings.

This poem is for the little one and all those that believe in magic

Tired and worn
Discolored mix of gray whites and blues
Distressed laces that once kept it together
Are Left in thin shambles laying so weakly through each disfigured loop

The stories they have carried me through
Stories of pure joy and happiness
Stories of pure depression and tears
Unfortunately their last story has been completed
For they have tired and can travel no further without falling apart

I have worn the same shoes off and on for four years and today I finally replaced them. Then I got thinking about all the things I have done in those shoes.

Ode to a Duck
(inspired by a story of a kid and his duck)

I like ducks they go quack
I like them all as a matter of fact
Daffy and Donald are my favorite two
I like ducks, do you?

They keep the garden free from bugs
The gross thing is, they eat slugs
A little baby duck waddled my way
Snuggled up close and there he stayed

I named him crackers because he ate all mine
He’d swim in the dogs dish all the time
He jumps on the chair sits next to me
Eats my popcorn and watches tv

The dog doesn’t like him, neither does the cat
He chases them both going quack, quack, quack
Now he grown and must behave
Because he’s a daddy with three little eggs

Red, wrinckled and balmed
Your shaky thigh, my sweaty palms.

Ode to Honey

Sticky warm honey straight form the hive
Thick and sweet and ever so nice
A big butter biscuit and a cup of tea
Both go great with a little honey
On hot cakes or a slice of toast
Pour it all over a dinner ham roast
Honey is great in so many ways
So have a little bit, it will sweeten up your day.

Some people live in a box called home
Some people drive around in a box
Some people think inside the box
Some people feel trapped inside a box
Don't get trapped inside your box
You are not a square

You are a beautiful circle
A circle full of life
A circle that gives and takes
A circle that loves and receives love
A circle that thinks outside of the box
A circle that sometimes get trapped in a box
A circle that realizes everything eventually comes full circle

Just an interesting idea I thought of. I feel like so many people get trapped inside their emotions that they forget about everything that makes them unique.

There once was a presumptuous poet
Who thought his poems were the best ever wrote,
He was quite prolific,
Thought he was terrific,
But he never wrote anything of note!

Lately, I have been suffering
From being slightly absent-minded,
Forgot to flush the Lav last night
Which almost left our lass blinded?

You dirty old sod!
You’ve forgotten to flush the chain,
Staring into the pan, she says
Looks like the remnants of your brain,

A genuine mistake possibly,
Fear will always be reminded of my error,
Her normally very passive tongue
Was now raging words of terror?

Yet I can see an escape route,
Or shall we say a viable excuse,
To explain my left deposits
Which were a little loose?

I know it has been a while my dear
Since you last visited the traps,
So I thought I would leave you a reminder
Then maybe just perhaps,

As it is over a week,
Since you last had a show,
I also detect a hint of jealousy,
Cos at least I can go!

Beaches are lots of fun,
Until you realize you cannot
Go because your body,
Mind, and soul have been
Cut a million times.
Salt water burns people like me.

March 19, 2017.
I fucked up my body, mind, and emotional state again, and have to figure out a way to get out of going to the beach... I'll probably blame it on school
