A Dormant Poet

“Know that there

is often hidden

in us a dormant poet,

always young and alive.”

~ Alfred De Musset-Pathay

hibernating

nature sleeping

frozen in time

all the world quiescent

dormant

.

Senryu:

.

fear made him strike out

it was mock sabre rattling

feigned anger and rage

Poem:

glorious flights of fantasy
having fun ignoring reality
this world is just too damn serious
everyone trying to solve the mysterious

was it a giggle or was it a snicker
candy is dandy but liquor is quicker
only the normal claim to be normal
you must be a God to say you’re immortal

every day is a good day for a party
just ask the big pooka named Harvey
no reason is ever needed to celebrate
all that is required is a few people to congregate

it is the happier occasions we love to keep
all those things and a good nights sleep
double the fun, lets have a tag team match
just remember where they put the escape hatch

having so much fun, wish this could go on forever
if not, we’ll quote the granddaughter, “Whatever.”

A Web You Weave

.

‘A story is

like something you

wind out of yourself.

Like a spider,

it is a web you weave,

and you love your story

like a child.”

.

~  Katherine Anne Porter

expensive

well made

rarer than rare

people, places and things

dear

over the river
going to visit grandma
and through the forest

respect for family birthright
prideful genealogy

Poem:

.

no, no, your other left

.

let us all take a trip to fantasy land
a place where everything is a one night stand
a place where fact and fiction are intermingled
a place where everyone’s vision is wrinkled

we’ll call the place california*
a place filled with tropical fauna and flora
also a place filled with fruits and nuts
everyone taking selfies of their butts

a sanctuary for felons and illegals
and we are not talking about sick eagles
daily fantasies produced by tv and movies
you can’t, won’t, don’t die when shot by an uzi

the whole place is cracked by the San Andreas Fault
every other producer charged with sexual assault
the fifth largest economy in the world
a place where the Mexican flag is unfurled

their representatives are poster children for term limits
their southern border like a sieve inhibits
politically and on the map they are as far left as you can go
they believe the feds have no right to know

we pray that someday their sanity may return
the unity of the nation should be their major concern

.

* The name California originates from the Spanish conquistadors,
after Califia, a mythical island paradise described in Las Serges de Esplandian
by Garcia Ordonez de Montalvo ​  (a Spanish romance written about 1510).
It most likely came from the Arabic word khalifa which means steward or leader.
