Effigies…

tree carvings 2

‘Tis the snow that haunts me from that day,
to see many footprints on their way
“Where do they lead”  ‘twas my thought
before I knew it I was caught
trailing them here ‘n there,
through the trees without care,
needing to see where they led
oh dear reader,
I should have fled.
On I went totally blind
to any thought but what I’d find.
’Til finally there they stood, huge carvings
in living wood. Tree trunk bare, branches locked,
I wandered round, totally shocked. Such effigies never
seen before, they thrilled my mind ‘n much more.
Unknowing a figure lurking near,
all clad in black, cloaked by fear,
ensorcelled me where I stood…
A frozen figure, ‘twould do no good
to warn you, for naught could be done,
as we who stand here are gone.
‘Tis so lonely inside this place,
staring out of my carved
wooden face…

One Wish Left…

Red Sports Car 
Foot
off the kerb,
a sudden warning blast.
Moving quickly back,
a red sports car roars past.
Jumping the red light
cheeky as can be,
even cheekier, he laughed at me.
Little did he know I had a wish left.
Now he’s driving a Mini,
looking totally bereft!!

Q Jumper…

queue jumperThe queue
was
long,
tempers
were short,
as the man pushed in
the air was fraught
with muttered words
and daggered glances
but he had no care
 
   for                                     
what                 
were
           the
                                      chances           
  anyone
      would                             
say               
a   
                  word
he was home and dry
and they were absurd.
Suddenly,
a hand waved a wand,
when his senses returned
he was knee deep in a pond.
Lesson learned? I hear you ask,
Oh no, he keeps trying
but I’m up to the task…
