Nothing more

Man in the moon malarkey

Stirring my drizzle of doubt

With a spoon

Logic, integrity lost

On some cat with a fiddle

Spewing his spittle of words

That I have heard before

Is there more?

I think I might have a cow

 

Join us at dVerse today for the fan favourite of 44 words and what we love to call the “quadrille”. As your host, I am asking you to include the word drizzle or derivative of. I have no idea what came over me to write this…except too many years of singing preschool rhymes.

Sweet Dreams

April 2013 010

I thought you were so bubblelicious
But you were nothin’ but a pez head
And I had enough marshmallow moments
Of my own
So I took the rainbow stairs
Because colour makes me happy
I sank deep
Into the cotton candy quicksand
Taking my strawberry toes
Back to earth
Just in time for tea and jelly tots
This poem is crazy
Like the shoestring licorice
That is now catapulting me
Back to chocolate clouds
You know, the ones you always dream of
‘Cuz chocolate’s better than rain
And pain
Is this insane?
Talk me down with sweet pastels
Your convincing candy necklace rope
I’ll kiss your giant wax lips
You can be my lifesaver
In green
