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.

Moist eyes appear sad

after the thrill of the chase

predator and prey

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.

Never alighting

the swift will forego the branch

dashing in Spring air

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #126

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

Ronovan writes Decima prompt #52 Darkness before morning

The announcement that we all expected

came cutting through the usual noise

of children occupied with toys,

from household chores thoughts deflected,

eyes and ears to screens directed,

sombre is the next announcement

as they hear the dark pronouncement

today life has come to an end

for well loved husband, father, friend

reflecting on a life well spent

a sneeze is a sign

that the fleas have done their work

blue is the sickness

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #203

Whilst in San Remo on holiday

I visited the graveyard one day

to find old Edward Lear‘s grave

and in these words my respects gave

I’m sorry sir but have you heard

everything you wrote was quite absurd

curious poems and stories tall

enjoyed by children and by all

you can be sure we will not forget

your wonderful nonsense alphabet
