Magic Boots
    Magic Boots    There once was a pair of magic boots    Donned by a little old man     If you took him by the elbow     He could take you to any land      He'd tap his magic boots     One, two, one and two     And whoosh through the twirly tunnel     To a lay with a bewitching view      "Where are we?" I asked in awe.     He gleefully replied, "It's my land of home."     'It's such a pleasing place," I spoke.      "Do you know nostalgia somewhere you've roamed?"          Startled by the querie, I gave due thought     "None so wondrous nor bountiful as this."      "My dear, it doesn't have to be,      But somewhere you are missed?"

Colossal Secrets
Colossal Secrets The sun has seeped below the horizon. The wind whistles wildly through the cracked open window. But at once, it lulls to a hypnotizing whisper;  The wispy whisper wakes my mind. I listen intently, for I detect its wish - To express a message.   I detect speech in the whispers, Spooky and surreal as it may be. "What?" I hear myself call to the wind. Suddenly it wrangles itself around again, Almost as if angry that I don't understand.   It then wavers from whipping up to whispering low, An unpredictable creepy creature.  Now it waggles, whirs and whirls around  Waking wind chimes both near and far As the wind now differently s

Early as it may seem?   I feel the blood oozing and dripping from the wound Like the shiny slimy yoke

A Shiny Path
    It was just after nightfall, and I realized I needed to fade away... the beach was always the best breathable place to be.  It was never too far, but I most often brought a flashlight.  So, I stopped to speculate.  Should I go back to get one, since I'd forgotten this time?  Yet on this night, the Full Moon had already risen immaculately bright.  The stars, so sublime, just twinkled their way down to touch their dancing twins, reflecting greetings back, from the ravishing ocean waters. The scene itself was completely spectacular, and I traveled some paces without realizing how many.  But, the moon was magnificent in all of her glory and I
