Crimson’s Creative Challenge #147

Take a look at this lovely pony

it’s obvious he is feeling lonely

he knows if he squeezed through the fence

he’d be able to meet new friends

but for now he will just stand and sigh

as he sadly watches each passer-by

Home comes the sailor, home from the sea,

he stands on the foc’sle and what does he see

a crowd of happy faces standing on the quay

he thinks my wife’s among them waiting there for me

but he’s not too surprised for this is not to be

she’s run away with Jim who lived at number three.

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

Cruising white-tipped waves on a restless sea

of uncharted depths cloaked in mystery

remains the ideal life for me

Looking to my future

Who will grieve when I am gone

I have no daughter nor a son

My wife departed long ago

Of my demise she will not know

Or care.

The end.

My lady’s name was primrose

she had such a beautiful snub nose

from where I would start kissing

making sure no part was missing

to the tips of her pretty pink toes

I looked at my neighbour

and she looked at me

then she smiled, bowed her head

and asked if I could see

that we and all the the other posts

were painted quite brightly.

I asked her for the reason

and with a smile of glee,

she said tonight when the park is closed

we will dance round the old dead tree

Sammiscribbles Weekend Writing Prompt #133 ~Thoughts of Yew.

I stand in silence exuding the dignity expected by my infrequent, reluctant visitors. Casting long shadows over the darkened windows, the black lace veils and dark suits so seldom aired. Offering comfort through familiarity to the grief-stricken, the respectful onlookers, the older ones knowing what best to say and do. Inwardly I smile for have I not, like many of my kind, stood guard at the cemetery gates for half of my two hundred year life.

she turns with a smile,

inviting,

smooth white limbs

encased in mesh, not feathers

will she fly with me?

priory-undercroft-I’d like a photo in there said Anne

so off we went, camera in hand

but first I had to pee,

she held it for me

and that’s how our romance began
