Ronovan writes Decima prompt #56 Symphony of life

I’m sure you don’t have to be told

the pleasure gained from listening

enraptured as the songbird sings

though whether it be wet or cold

his notes will shine like liquid gold

from his high perch up in the trees

his joyful tunes ride on the breeze

we can be sure he does not need

a written score from which to read

his repertoire is sure to please.

I’d like to tell you a little tale

about a girl called Rita Hayward,

with her independent outlook

her parents thought her wayward,

but like many women in those days

she liked to think herself liberated,

certainly her breasts turned out to be as

when while on a date she co-operated

with the removal of her underclothes

giving me a quite expectant thrill,

imagine how my pulses quickened

when she said, “It’s okay I’m on the pill

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #129

On the ground there lies a tree

if you look closely you can see

a face that looks rather sad to me

so it seems that now I can only

hope the wood’s spirit now roams free

to find a new home and be happy.

Not far ahead there stood the hind

so he sank slowly to the ground

in order not to make a sound

his target had been hard to find

but the fates that day had been kind

raising his glasses to his eyes

he saw she had her fawn beside

and if they left the undergrowth

then he could surely shoot them both

because a camera never lies.

Moist eyes appear sad

after the thrill of the chase

predator and prey

Ronovan writes Decima prompt #54

The sun rises in the morning,

banishing the grey mists of dawn

the rising sun greets the new morn,

in defiance of science scorning

crimson tinges and their warning

as Helios once again tries

to cast Selene from the skies

before inviting Mother Earth

to celebrate the new day’s birth

heralded by the new sunrise

Cruising white-tipped waves on a restless sea

of uncharted depths cloaked in mystery

remains the ideal life for me

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #128 The Old Forest mystery

I was walking down the old farm track

when all the memories came flooding back

of the questions that we used to ask

like who would set themselves the task

of carving in stone a set of stairs

that seemed to us to lead nowhere

for at the top we looked all around

no signs of a building were ever found

and when we told our parents where

we’d been they’d say oh don’t go there

but they would never tell us why

and I’ll always wonder till I too die.
