An ache in my heart

a dose of nature can ease

Spring is in the air.

I set out my stall at the local antique fair

then took a stroll around to see who else was there

noticed that, there were very many rows

of second-hand furniture, toys and baby clothes,

items of bric-a-brac and knick-knacks quite a few,

of antiques none that could be classed as true,

on closer inspection there were some nice bits

but also a lot that most would call kitsch

CCC #120

The poor green man is at a loss

he has lost his cushion of moss,

if on a walk you turn quickly

you may see him hiding in the trees

but now he’s old and past his best

so even he sometimes needs to rest.

A slip on the ice

time will stand still as they fall

hope no one’s watching

A sensible bird

waits for a tail wind to blow

easing Spring’s journey.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #118 The ancient pathway

You may think this a tranquil scene

but do take care as things unseen

may lurk behind each bush or tree

looking out for the unwary

or lone traveller on the path

who might feel the fairies’ wrath

if their charges they don’t pay

that they may safely pass their way.

False rumours and lies

like an old dog with no teeth

still able to bite.

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #195

I’m writing a poem often tried

It’s a version of a sonnet

about a man who was often lied

about and himself did profit from it

I am referring to of course Don Juan

a fictional seventeenth century hedonist

with an ego quite gargantuan.

who did embark on many a tryst

of love or even romance it is often said

his exploits were quite phenomenal,

to judge by the numbers he did bed

and seen as both influential and seminal.

The reason for his downfall is a mystery

but his life will be remembered in history.
