imaginary bars

cage door opens wide

the bird flies out free at last
it was never locked

I thought I was trapped
in cycles of crash & burn
seeking cool water

my eyes open wide
those imaginary bars~
they were never there

thing of beauty

Today's post is inspired by "carry on tuesday" prompt #49

innocence of youth
grabs your attention without
really trying to

natural movements
uninhibited by fear,
such amazing grace

a thing of beauty~
can it be captured and held?
we all must grow up

Public Announcement

all the world's a stage,
if the press shows up with their
cameras & mic's

one million dollars!
the good news sure gets around
already online

real or memorex

bald guy in hot pink

plays god in a french movie
see him leap buildings

bright yellow undies
my mind fills in all the blanks
dreams of orange peel

tiny camera emerges
from fragrant fresh-cut flowers
rose colored glasses

random neurons fire
building bridges in my mind
real or memorex?

stretched out on the bed
how long have I been awake?
is it morning yet?

no crying over spilt beets

no time to eat lunch
back into the bag it goes
with cash deposits

to the bank teller:
there's no blood on this money
just some red beet juice

vive la difference

[from carry on tuesday's prompt: Vive la Difference]

one thing I do know:

whether from venus or mars

we are different

the planets rotate

at very different speeds~

men and women too

innies and outies

say: Vive la difference

let's get together

kissed by the universe

early morning sun
peeps over the garden fence
kissing daffodils

warm breeze ruffles fur
kitty in the windowsill
he's kissed by the wind

stopped at the red light
a stranger blows me a kiss
I smile and drive on
