IN SEARCH OF A HORSE

Published April 14, 2018 by Nan Mykel

 

 

 

The horse should ideally pull

the cart. Agreed? But if the horse

is not in sight you’re left with

the cart part, and must envision

what kind of horse will pull your

poem into the light of day.

Problem is, most cart-pullers are

tired, worn out and hacknied, lacking

sufficient strength to bear the load.

Love, death, flower, tree, even Trump

won’t do it today.  The backside

of an eyeball? Ingrown toenails

seeking freedom? The charley horse

that sets you dancing? Or the rat

poison under the sink?

What’s common to all of us?

Hate? A drag.  Sorrow? Too close.

Hope? Delusional.  Denial?

Not me!  Revolution? Not yet.

Pain? Love my oxycodone.

Truth? But doesn’t that depend on

where you’e standing? Reality!

Let’s hear it for reality!

Really?  I’ll vote for Make Believe:

 

Two golden butterflies pull my

cart through rainbows in the sky.

Oh my! Curly tresses, rosy cheek,

music charms when ere I speak.

 

 

A COUPLA MORE FOR THE TRASH BIN

IF

If the circle can be believed, we are one with all, together, safe and contained.still-3

If the mandala mirrors truth, we rise and fall within our connected minds.

If we believe the spiral, we know that we return again and again to revisit our challenges.

Or the ancient maze,  where searching, we find our way or are lost,

 

ANOTHER IF

If you were a red light

and I were the green

we would never be blue.

If you were a brook

and I was a raindrop

I’d lose myself in you.

 

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

If God had a tattoo, what would it say?
