The Dragonflies' Lair~Thread XXVIII~
The Muse/Poets of the Lair | June 11, 2006 | bentfeather

Posted on 06/11/2006 7:33:20 AM PDT by Soaring Feather



My Dragon Fly and Me



If I could be a Dragon Fly
and wing my way through the sky
I would never be shy
just me and my Dragon Fly!

By moonlight we ride the wind
chase the comets tail for fun
by day we would hide from the sun
our fragile wings would come undone

On darkest nights we would use
fireflies as our guide
we would dip and we would glide
through the heavens open wide
and scatter diamonds in the night sky
my Dragon Fly and me...

And we would wing past our lovers
silent in the night...
to kiss their face in our flight
much to their surprise and delight
my Dragon Fly and me in sight...

Such a view do we share
away up here in the air
of breezes soft through our hair
my Dragon Fly and me a pair...

There's plenty to do inside, no doubt.
There's lots to do on the road as well.
Since yesterday was such a rout.
And tomorrow I will have to go out.
Work here today will be just swell.

I'd rather buy a ticket
And scratch a winning one.
Then no stickey wicket,
But loads and loads of fun!

No point to buy a ticket
Cause no one ever wins
the ones on tv fake it
to scam the othere in

If Only!

The wind oh so softly whispers
with the lilt of a bluesy piano
played by a mournful soul
aching as she walks away

He wanted so to speak with her
to tell her he was a gifted poet
a shaper of words like music
but her beauty silenced him

Now he longs to relive that moment
to speak to her and break that ban
to finally release his inner artist
sweep her away on wonderful words

The blues echo in his sad soul
and even his friends save him not
as he wanders an empty park
filled with unfulfilled wishes.

In the night of cold dark air
she walks alone and wonders where
the promises made took flight

she knows inside the only thing
she can count on are the blues
blowing soft when it gets to much to bare.

She wraps her arms around her self
for comfort from the chill
and wills herself to put those steps
one ahead of the other without
looking back to see if he is there.

While

Blues blow soft in cold night air.

Oh I am so tired. I tried my hand at painting the bathroom, a little progress on the walls, but my back is aching.

I get tired thinking of painting the bathroom!   But I believe it's because every room here needs painting. One of my cats wrecked my neck by laying in it so often during our horribly rainy month. I got so accustomed to her being in my arm, I'd forget her, but it apparently took its toll.

So, take my advice, don't paint today. Have you ever considered a water bed? Have I ever mentioned it? They aren't expensive and have helped me and a number of others who took my advice. If you are curious at all, I'll tell you all about it.

I'm done painting for the day, going to take a hot shower and crash on the sofa and cocoon until tomorrow.

We have talk about water beds, I am not strong enough to get out of the things. ;(

I'm sure the water bed reduces the pressure points which occur with a traditional mattress.

You just roll out. You can add handrails, too.

I've been home with non-sutured abdominal surgery and, though as you can imagine, it was extremely painful, even then I could get out of bed.

Having had a waterbed around 30 years, I've a lot of inspirational quips about them.

Sparkling, spectacular wings of flight.

I love the silver background.

Silver is my metal.I never wear gold, looks cheap and brassy on me.

Rose Gold only. I have tried yellow gold I don't like it on me.

Of course, I would not say no to Platinum.

It hasn't been the same since the last fire.

Wild Weather In 3 Acts

Rain falls in sheets like gossamer curtains
shutting off the view across the street
as if we see the curtain in a life play
as the storm sets a mood in the indigo dusk

Thunder portends drama amid the chill winds
the stage lit by a harsh strobe engraving the scene
and we await the next act, unsure of what is to be
and we slip from the disappearing day’s husk

The immortal Bard readies his cast tonight
and we watch in awe as each plays their part
in this production called severe weather, a wild act
preceded by the scent of nature’s pre-rain musk.

Good morning!

Well the place I'm working with asked me to stay on till almost October. So after my big departure speech, I'll still be hanging around for some time.

Haven't seen any muses passing by lately though.

I really liked your poem on Post #109. Very pensive and reflective. Had a novel (as in book) feel to it, kind of like a key point at which the plot twists.

Hi Starbase, so glad you are still with us. ;)

Thanks for the nice words regarding my poem. I also, love that you analyzed the poem, I never know about these things until I hear how it affects a reader.

The muse has been avoiding me of late, must be I did not listen to her and she is annoyed with me. LOL

Good afternoon, Lady, is it that bad?? You're just a skeleton of yourself today.

I am thinking about taking up the paint brush again today. I have been inspired as to my colour choices for the bathroom. Aha, I discovered I have paint left over from the manse bedroom redo last year. Viola! I shall just reverse the order in which they were applied and all will be consistent. YAY!

What I am painting now is a simple base coat. I just need a body to cooperate with me to get the job done.
