GOLDEN





Imaginary Garden With Real Toads--dVerse Poets Pub




On a sun-splashed day
in a desert 
where the Horse With No Name
made his claim to fame

With spring making overtures

like a punch-drunk lover

I saw her

in my mind's eye
I heard her
in my mind's ear
I contemplated her
in my mind's belly button

Behold The Vagabond Princess

electric rays sparking 
from the tips of her golden hair
she's been there
and back
on a beach with some name
And all because sunshine came
softly through her window that day

Swaying to the beat

of a distant drummer
her gaze is locked on summer

A painted man

walks down the street
blowing bubbles out his ears

How does he do that?


The world is a wondrous

and magical place to be...

The answer blowing

in the tail winds
that are bringing her to me

    1. It's here!!! We don't spring forward or fall back around here. We just do a lot of sitting on our asses :)

  6. One of your best poems ever so far, friend ... Thanks for sharing your gift ... Here is hoping for many more spring bubbles coming out of your eyes, ears and belly button (DST or not), hmmm ? Love, cat.

  7. "in my mind's belly button" made me laugh and then the rest was a real good trip. "Her gaze is locked on summer", so is mine! Really enjoyable!
