Sleep cracks, as lids flutter in dream
Georgie Porgie has vented his spleen
A melon-tinged bird appears on the wing
Take me back gilded horse, Madame Queen, Mrs King
Mary Contrary with buzzard and cheese …
Eyes blink open. Daytime … just light. 6:58 AM … 2 minutes till alarm. Damn! It feels like I just shut my eyes. Wait … there was a pig-faced man overthrowing a monarchy … a golden horse and … a duck. No! An albatross? Wait … no, it’s gone!
I reach to the nightstand and foil the wretched alarm. And then, there…
You may know my name. Or maybe not?
I am just another thing, rattling around in a Universe of things.
You could be wandering down a beautiful country track on a fine summer’s day, with infant birds chirping in the trees.
The sun is shining its warm, healing rays down on your face and you feel embraced and at peace.
Then, you see me in the distance. A friendly image walking towards you.
You close your eyes for a brief instant, enjoying the warmth of the moment.
Blinking-open your ‘lids, to take in the scene …
But time has passed…
Pale light filters through the drapes of my bedroom window as I drop out of slumber. It must be early because my room is cold and crisp from the cool of sunrise.
Swinging my legs out of bed, I tip-toe to my desk at the window and drop to the wooden chair. Rubbing sleep from my eyes as I peer out across the backyard to a forest of Huon Pine trees.
I like to call it my forest, because it has special meaning to me. Within that five acres is Alien Glade, the meeting point for visitors from beyond our…
Her writing sings for all to see
Beauty in prose without predictability
A handsome face
Projects her grace
An author flowing betwixt the seas
Alas, if only I could scrive as lit
Or pen a fraction of her peerless wit
My heart would sing
But where to begin
Such majestic rays are seldom writ
For her a phrase is but a joy to weave
While my foolish stuttering can only grieve
My poison pen
Her effortless Zen
A dichotomy you no doubt believe
Her writing flows for all to see
Painted words aligned in harmony
Little Mickey, the Mouse from Hell
Is He takin’ the piss? It’s so hard to tell
A threat masked in pep
To the bridge we all shlep
A hospital wing, for all those who fell
A secure facility, for His victims to wail
Named, shamed and gamed, then setup to fail
Walled and secured
Bequeathed by His Lord’
God’s Gift of the Wing, we bow down and hail!
Such a tiny Mouse with a behemoth head
Raised and stilted, on the bones of the dead
The thirtieth piece
Sliced from the deceased
Oh Judas, you are so well…

Well imagine living through all the fun of a viral year combined with mental-health issues, on a rickety wagon. Yes, you guessed it!
I lived that 365 days, plus one, strapped to a water-wagon, on an extremely bumpy road
If you think that is amusing? The truly funny thing is that, somehow, I managed to…
