The Flight of the Queen

March 16, 2018

The Flight of the Queen

The Queen had enough
and scowled at the King,
– who paid no mind –
took off her crown,
swept back her hair,
and with a grand sweep
defenestrated it!

Where it startled a cat
traipsing by
who scampered off
to later return
and sniff the cold metal
and paw the bright gems.

With a train in pursuit
and the guards all lined up
like a column of sconces,
she left the castle.

Under a cloudy sky
she came to a halt,
raised her hand to command,
“Bring me a carriage!”
Attending maids
scattered to obey.

The Queen now ensconced:
bumping along over brick roads,
bumping along over stones in the dust,
bumping along over the muddy trail,
out of the kingdom,
and into the forest.

Her anger settled
– a falling curtain –
enough to take hold
in a lesser place.
Reason raised up
to then take over

Where to now…?
Where goes the Queen … ?

Knock Knock (poem)

March 19, 2016

Knock! Knock!
Knock on my door.
But when I opened it
no one was there.

Knock! Knock!
Knock on my wall.
But when I answered it
no one was there.

“Out or in,
which do you want?”
I wait for an answer…
Knock! Knock!.

Deep in a Dungeon (poem)

March 19, 2016

Deep in a dungeon
and far underground,
the Magician planted a garden.

A spell was the seed
that made the plants green,
turn ripe, and fill up his larder.

“Oh Magician
why the long face
when the garden grows so well?

I have to daily
come down and water
the plants with a magic spell.

Suit of Armor (kid’s poem)

November 2, 2013

Kid’s poem – for my Moon Tea collection of poems for children

I’d prefer
a suit of armor
that would work
the other way

Instead of covering
up all me,
it would cover
up the world.
