Visit From A Cat in a Hat

Jumping on the piano

quite fat

looking for a role model

saw a cat in a hat

He sat on the table

looking quite thin

chatting as he ate dinner

getting food on his chin

Picking up the newspaper

reading about current affairs

thought for a moment

stating life is not fair

Take my advice

eat until quite content

stare humans in the eye

they will wonder the intent

Swinging his umbrella

singing as he walked out the door

dancing in the puddles

the rain began to pour

The Adventurous Ghost

Out of the volcanic fissure

the ghost arose

searching for conversation

everywhere it goes

Matching opponents

in lengthy debates

subjects range from politics

to what was just ate

Coming across a silent one

deep in thought

ghost is mesmorized

and spoke naught

A smile on his face

as the meditation ended

looking at the ghost

he felt splendid

Asking the ghost

about the spirt world

it is happy or sad

content or in a twirl

The ghost replied

it can be any

filled with want

or a land of plenty

Fire and ice

twist and turns

much like life

what is yearned

Adventure continues

as the ghost floats away

exploring this realm

each day

Life of a Halloween Frog

Halloween night

dressed in a costume

stole some candy

hitting my friend with a broom

With intense emotions

he cast a spell

wishing me to be a frog

in the soil to dwell

I gave a bloodcurdling scream

as the spell came to fruition

everything was gone

except my intuition

Dirty and covered in mud

eating a fly

jumping around

feeling quite spry

Along comes a dog

taking me in his mouth

struggling to be free

afraid this going south

Let go

thrown under a fence

trying to breathe

the air is dense

Finding my friend

mother said to change me back

croaking an apology

using great tact

At home

filled with relief

gave all candy to my friend

small price to stand on two feet

The Golden Quest

Straddling my horse

riding into the wind

suddenly gold appears

my face with a grin

The gold is everywhere

as ludicrous as it seems

radioactive decay

sparkling in the stream

Riding into the sun

beautiful white light

gold falling to the ground

an incredible sight

Picking up the gold

excited at the treasure

rolling around in it

too much to measure

Picking some up

from the ground and the stream

enough to fill a mattress

an incredible dream

Sun begins to set

the gold fading away

could have been a myth

but the memory never sways

The Haunting Attempt

The apparition appeared

in the middle of the night

making noise

trying to give a fright

Moving things around

suddenly the woman was awake

looking around

at things about to break

The apparition was suave

wanting her to be his queen

looking at the mess

she began to scream

Stay if you must

haunting this home

but as for me

I choose to be alone

Rules of the house

here is a broom

if you want to stay

clean this room

The apparition was quiet

this was not what he expected

to be a servant

and to be rejected

Leaving the house

vowing never to return

better to haunt alone

a lesson learned

The Fearful Vortex

High above the mountain

pulling souls in

the vortex grows

feeding off fears within

The avatar becomes the vessel

filled with fervent greed

doing whatever is necessary

to satisfy every need

Grilled by tormentors

night and day

thunder and lightening strike

when they do not get their way

All that remains is a zombie

returned to haunt the earth

luring other poor souls

that do not know their worth

Through the clouds

comes a flicker of light

then the sun rises

everything is bright

A champion comes

taking away all fear

rescuing souls in the vortex

drawing them near

A new avatar

throws away the fears of old

living in calm and serenity

lovely to behold

Facing a Fearful Fall

Maneuvering down the stairs

facing a fear

trying not to look down

when a spider jumps on my ear

Losing balance

grabbing a rope

quashing a scream

losing hope

Struggling to reach the steps

certain my fate has been sealed

fog envelops me

taunting me to yield

Praying

while letting go

wind picks me up

trying not look below

Floating in the air

life passes before my eyes

moments of humor

before I die

Landing on the ground

into some soft brush

realizing I am alive

what a rush

Getting up

having faced a fear

walking away from the steps

grateful for life so dear

The Dimension Traveler

In the splendor of time

dimensions are split

creating an illusion

using a sewing kit

Chilling in simplicity

causing the truck to go uphill

the sewing machine emits a signal

giving the young man a thrill

Looking elegant

in his suit

graduating in parallel time

a willing recruit

In this episode

chaos is the goal

causing death and destruction

soul is quite cold

Each day he lives

in another dimension

changing histories

a mind invention

Sentenced to eternity

living in deception

soul is lost

depending on the perception

Darkness and light

chosen each day

the young man is happy

choosing the way

A Winter Stroll

Shivering in the cold

on this icy day

hearing a cryptic sound

coming my way

Is it an animal

or the wind

splitting hairs over the crunching ice

where the water is thin

Snow is blowing

catching a quick glimpse

seeing the source of the sound

it’s a small imp

Changing direction

to avoid this devil

stumbling on the ice

stream is ground level

Skating on the ice

speeding down the falls

doing some unique turns

reveling in it all

One last look

at the breathtaking scenery

beautiful snow and ice

contrast to the summer greenery

Back in the cabin

by a cozy fire

wrapped in a blanket

time to retire

Figment of Imagination

Glass shattered as the

figment of imagination spoke

coming so very close

creativity to evoke

Waving the curtains apart

sun filters into the room

shattered glass glowing

creating a brilliant ballroom

Dancing around

shadow as my mate

in perfect harmony

an elegant date

Filled with color

painting the wall

panels telling a story

trying to grasp it all

In the story

there is no blame

everything happens for a reason

sadness has no name

Music stops

back to reality

sweeping up the broken glass

throwing away the debris

Smiling

taking a new path

closing the door

as the curtains laugh
