Outside of the Box

Build me a home

With pieces of me

Open heart plan

Tulips and trees

Walls of words spoken

Timeless and treasured

Cloud me a ceiling

Cottoned and feathered

 

Blueprint my passions

Shutter my fears

Sprinkle my garden

With laughter and tears

Montage my memories

In order, not fancy

Stardust my floors

Let me be dancy

 

For dVerse Poetics where our guest host, Sara McNulty has asked us “to imagine that you have been given free rein to design any type of building you wish”.

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

 Originally written for Anthony Desmond’s poetic prompt “In a not so Real World”. There is a great sense of freedom when you let down the boundaries of the “norm”, giving free reign to your imagination. It’s Open Link Night at dVerse.
