A Poem Takes Flight

Weekend Mini Challenge: Thought Animals

Kimis our host in the Garden  this weekend

A Poem Takes Flight

~

Like a small caterpillar
My thoughts grow
Fed with nibbles of ink
And syllables

Bit by bit they become bigger
Until they’ve out grown
Their small skin – shedding
Unwanted ideas and trite phrases

Growing longer and wiser
My words curl up, take a break
Transform into a poem
Then spread their wings and fly

Magician

It’s time again for a Quadrille over at the Pub . The theme is ‘leaves’

The Magician
chewing on leaves
until show time –
hanging upside down,curling
your body into a J, wrapping
yourself in a gold studded shell
no cheap parlor trick – this
is the real thing –
you emerge
wearing a black and orange
cloak and
fly away
