Rise – A Quadrille

Unable to rise above
feelings of despair
Dragging me down
on this road to nowhere  
Strength and bravery
failing me once more
eyes blinded
as I crawl on the floor 
Help me please
as you are wise
Lift me up
So, I may rise

Trolling – A Quadrille

Trolling


The fisherman would troll
the waters deep
A habit he formed
He could not sleep   
 
Night after night
patient for the catch
Staring out to sea
Willing the batch  
 
His nets did trawl
But for naught
A snifter of whisky
For sleep he thought

Kiss The Dust – A Quadrille

Kiss The Dust – A Quadrille


The steady rain kisses my cheeks
Mixing with my tears
I am waiting for you to come
and quell my deepest fears  
Why are you so late my love?
 I hope it is not true
You have found someone else
Maybe I always knew

Relaxation – A Quadrille

Relaxation

Steep the fragrant blossoms
In oil
and pluck the grapes 
from the vine 
Slice the ripe oranges
And sweeten the wine
 
Draw a bath
of fresh scented roses
and recline
in its relaxant power
Lie back closing your eyes
and envisage
the Lotus flower

Change – Quadrille

Change


A change is as good as a rest 
and the Leopard can’t change his spots 
A change in the weather 
is like changing your socks 
  
You can change your tune 
and change your mind 
Now isn’t that strange 
The only thing inevitable
is change

Good Dog – A Quadrille

Good Dog

A good dog you cannot spoil

Nor can you teach her

to wag her tail

 

She is an angel on earth

Sent to you so you’ll know

Things are not so frail

 

Unconditional love

is yours for the asking

Given freely for your avail

Light Show – A Quadrille

Light Show

 

In the Milky Way

A sliver of the moon

Winks in the sky

Like a hook to catch

A fish that might fly

 

The night is glowing

As stars dot the darkness

Like a breadcrumb trail

Brightening your way home

On a galactic scale

Vision – A Quadrille

Vision

In the early morning light

You are a vision without a care

Long red hair tied up in a velvet ribbon

Your green dress worn with flair

 

You are playful in spirit

and full of excitement

To say you are beautiful 

is an understatement

Unsafe Harbor – A Quadrille

Unsafe Harbor

You promised to love me

and to protect me always

Through thick and thin

for the rest of our days

 

However you lied to me

and my heart was broken

I harbor no ill will toward you, but

another word will never be spoken

Don’t Box Me In

In response to d’verse poets Quadrille #62 – BOX

Don’t think outside
the box
or even when you’re in it
Throw the box away

Containing nonsense
you never look at
Hoarding is a disease
You don’t need it anyway

Don’t get boxed in
like Jack did
He had to jump
Remember Boxing Day?
