Climbing…

shining dove with rays on a dark It appears
I’m climbing a mountain,
my whole life a spur to the top.
At the moment it feels slow going
I’m afraid to slowdown and stop.
Looking back I see many detours,
mistaken when faith grew weak.
When the way seemed easier,
or so I thought, until the
trail led me back to seek,
the true path to the crown
,
to the summit, where every
breath is now thin and frail.
Reaching the pinnacle of life’s
desire,  to achieve flight, not to
plummet and thereby fail.

Traveller’s Rest…

Sadness 
I bid thee good day, traveller
art thou sorely in need of a drink?
Doth thy bones feel tired and weary
craving a soft bed in which to sink?
Thy journey seemed fraught, endless,
a personal quest, a memory gone.
Please rest, sit and take repast
’tis a while since I aided anyone.
Hearth ‘n home I freely offer
a welcome to tarry ‘til daybreak
but a word to the wise I proffer
answer no knocks, for pity’s sake.
There be one who’s soul is restless,
she roams about in search of peace,
pray ignore her pleas and entreaties
LadyP will bend thy ear ‘n never cease.

this came to me last night,  sleepless, as a dreamscape, a story in a story.     I just enjoyed the darkness of it. xx

Wordsmith Tale…

Wordsmith
You dread such moments,
your brain is not your own,
all thoughts seem alien and unreal,
you feel estranged from everyday life,
sans ability to express what you feel.
Nothing
prepares you
for times such as these,
nothing at all
you can do
for being a wordsmith is your whole life
without that talent, what are you?
Yet there remains a hope
a thin line of chance,
the words
will                
again                       
dance                            
to                                        
your                                       
tune,                                     
for                                   
you                          

are                  
the           
     piper,
                       you pay

                                   no-one.
                                           To
                                                    such
                                                      fears
                                                     you       
                                                        must                
                                                            become                    
                                                      immune…

Curiosity Killed…

A
Big
Red
Button,
tempting,
as you stare.
It says,”Press me,
let me know you care.
You have no idea what I can do,
the warning is not for one such as you.
It can’t hurt,  just give me a little push.”
As the siren sounds in a sudden rush
you wonder “What have I done?”
’tis too late now,
countdown
process
has
    begun….

A Key Dimension…

House-with-Key I put my key into the lock
but found it wouldn’t budge,
the door it seemed
to snigger as if it
bore a grudge.
I fiddled ‘n I jiggled
then resorted to a kick,
but that didn’t help at all
only left me feeling sick.
’Twas then the door
sneered at me
as it’s long
tongue
unfurled,
It was not
the door, or the key,
I was in the wrong world…
