Tales from an author

#NationalPoetryDay

                   Visions Reflected

Weaving a tapestry, the Lady of Shalott

Visions reflected through a glass onion

Catch a glimpse of a fair maiden

Her feet sore from bunions

Fixing a hole in the ozone

Nearly ending the verse, that’s your lot

 

Making mayhem in a kitchen, the Lady of Shalott

Wonderland and nature offer such a lot

Pig and pepper, and the piper at the gates of dawn

Getting tired, they start to yawn

Fix your mind on what we might eat for tea

Perhaps a fish no longer swimming in the sea

 

Weaving a tapestry, the Lady of Shalott

Wonderland and nature offer a lot

Caterpillar, chrysalis, metamorphosis, butterfly

Sit and watch it flutter by

Fix your mind on the beauty in the sky

This is a short poem, not sure why

 

Making mayhem at a party, a lady wearing a hat

Another wisecrack, how do you do that?

Hatter, Hare, and Dormouse, sat here since dawn

Getting tired, were you asleep, or is it just a yawn?

Fix your mind on what you might want for tea

Perhaps a crumpet – do you fancy me?

 

Relaxing in a garden on a sunny Summer day

Alice is the lady in a blue dress

Eating an ice cream before it melts in a mess

Feeling dreamy, feeling hot on a hot day

Fixing her mind on what a gardener might say

Thoughts getting longer  – do you fancy me?
