Roll With It

Roll With It

If I can just roll with it
go in the right direction
match the speed
learn to flow with it.

Stay the right shape
go real slow with it
watch so I don’t plateau
or be so-so with it.

No holding back
finally in the know with it
fitting in this time
so I can grow with it.

Bambi Came To Dinner

Bambi Came To Dinner

Bambi came to dinner
ate all the fresh flowers
nibbled on the tablecloth.

Alice drank from a bottle
became too small to sit at the table
all she wanted was to fit into that dress.

Micky Mouse showed up late
kept dancing with the food
he was acting goofy.

The roast beast sidled up to me
asking what cut I wanted to eat
I told him he was too rare for me.

I never figured out who the host was
I didn’t get a bite to eat
afraid the food would bite me back.

Who?

Who?

Under the ship-of-night (moon)
a lone head-twister (owl)
was watching a figure
sitting near a bane-of-wood. (fire)
The rune-caller (wizard)
sat deep in thought
he had lost his mind’s-worth (honor)
the proclamation was swift
banishing him to his death
in this weather-of-wolves. (harsh winter)
He had no options left
reaching into his bag
he brought forth the dragon’s-bile (poison)
put it to his lips and drained it.
A draught-of-giants (sudden realization)
came upon him
one more spell was cast
his uncut-thread (destiny to be fulfilled)
was not finished here.
Under the ship-of-night (moon)
the lone head-twister (owl)
flew off into the night
seeing with someone else’s eyes.

Believe

Believe

Believe in a better tomorrow
believe that the air is pristine
believe that there’s nothing endangered
the future remains to be seen.

Believe in a world that is caring
believe that the oceans are clean
believe companies are recycling
the future remains to be seen.

Believe in a healthier planet
believe if together we lean
believe we can all do what’s needed
the future deserves to be green.

I’d Like To Die Wrapped In An Elephant’s Trunk

I’d Like To Die Wrapped In An Elephant’s Trunk

I’d like to die wrapped in an elephant’s trunk
gently, but snug like a bug in a rug
just has to be the most heavenly hug
an eternal cuddle of elephant love.

Gone

Gone

In the woods is where you’ll find me
as far away as I can stay
when I’ll be back I cannot say
I need some time to just be free
a better, kinder, gentler me
amongst the trees, I will transcend
mother nature my only friend
never again to join the fray
shunning the world is now my way.
Gone, until the very end.
