Wednesdays Poem: “Saint Valentine’s Wishes”

(Foto property of FBC, Omnia Caelum Studios Valencia)

Waking up and smelling coffee,

“pour me a cup of tea”, I said,

trying to be as polite as I can be

as I slowly levitated

from my coffin or bed

where they laid me to rest

as they thought I was dead

cause I daydreamed and slept for a month…

In my dreams I floated through whims

ripping up the daisies that grew in the limbs

of the creature that I was creating

on a slab in a lab on a mountain that I was inventing.

Upon awakening…

I drank absinthe with Lenin and Marx

while we watched as our children danced circles

around a red Maypole.

and Plato could not find the words to explain

things in his head that philosophy can’t understand,

instead he madly insisted

that a cave was a metaphor for those

who Napoleon black-listed.

While wide awake…

I’ve been to the show and I’ve been in the cast

and I know that a voyage can’t last

unless it’s fuel is raw anarchy,

fed with sons of the monarchy

and inspired on Saint Valentine’s wishes…

    Great imagery and conjuring of the fanciful and fantastic. So many great lines. I have read it over and over finding little nuances an ideas sprinkled throughout. Well done, my friend!

        Chilly? Wow! In all my years living in Miami I think I only felt cold one night that the temperature went down to about 40F but…it’s a changing world. All the best Holly, stay warm 😊

        We’re thin blooded here, lol. 40 is freezing for us. I spend most weekends on Merritt Island so that’s even colder. 🧤🧤stay warm too!

    Interesting. I like the story line. I wasn’t expecting death in the picture but it’s a nice touch.
