These Hands

When’d they get so old lookin’, he wondered, these same hands
that built this house. A saw took this ring finger

clean off, hardly bled at all. These same hands, before they were all
bent and peculiar, tilled these fallow fields, barren as the missus,

before the cancer took her, after Doc White took her ovaries and the chemo
took her hair. Looked jess like a baby bird, she did. Like this fledgling mewling

in these hands, its wing bent and lifeless, mangled foot clasping nothing.
The shovel blade against its neck, it hardly bled at all.

Midnight Odyssey

White dragon flies black velvet skies on silver star-kissed wing,
hop-scotching cotton clouds so soft to spark a twilight fling.
While soaring 'cross the heavens high he drifts near Luna Moon,
he'll serenade her with a sigh... sweet lullaby to croon.

The fairie queen stands regally on wispy cirrus white,
her layered skirts a-shimmering with lunar lucent light.
Caress of cheek from silken hair afloat on warmest breeze
obscures the smile upon her face, she glances shy to tease.

Her ivory carriage glides up near, a twinkle in his eye.
He offers her a pleasured flight across the starry sky.
With graceful ease she climbs his wing to perch atop his back,
delighting in fantasial sights through spheres of dapple-black.

Free-flying on those gentle winds, bestirring mists bordeaux,
astride her gem-toned dragon's neck with smiling face aglow,
they're seeking thrills with Nanna star who reigns supreme above ...
then richly blend their voice as one to sing of Ladylove.

Their glistening playground turns to rose as night draws to its end.
Aurora's winking in the dawn, soon darkness she will rend.
Thus seeking out soft-pillowed clouds, a place to rest the day,
repose their heads 'til dusk descends, 'twill then resume their play.

You are most welcome Cathy! Artist.gif

I think this particular poem might even have a record for all the awards associated with it (4).

Well done!
