curious ~ a quadrille

I’m curious…
where will my words wander
what thoughts will string me along
which lines will rhyme or will not
Oh why did I choose to write about
what is inside my head
when there are a million other worlds
I can write about

dVerse quadrille hosted by De Jackson of whimsygizmo ~ a curiousity of poems

This is ~ a quadrille

this is a banyan tree
devouring time
tightening its tentacles
on creatures and creations
drilling deep into the heart of earth
sucking out the wine of life
life that knew children’s laughter
life that you and I wonder about
this banyan tree does not

my heartbeat ~ a quadrille

my heartbeat cheats on time

and possibilities

for one serene moment

I affix my mind on that day

allowing my imagination

to tentatively touch the tingles

on my bruised lower lip

softly humming lyrics of us

ensconced in the satisfice

of our tangled togetherness

Time blanket ~ a quadrille

Time’s precision pendulum swings

lulling me into surrender

sweeping silly senses under

quilted blankets of beguiling

delusions of imaginings

cozily wrapped up in rainbows

warping Time through a window

into, over, future and pasts

stalling, staying, scuttling fast

TickTock TickTock. What’s fast? What’s slow?
