Your hand unfurled
You'd captured while out dreaming
They drifted skyward:
Little wisps of hope
Reaching out like ethereal streaming
I breathed them in
As dawn brightened
The stirring sea
And downloaded all the wonders
Of what you and I
Could, one day, grow to be.

A laughing Parrott ate a carrot as
an Elephant climbed up a tree,
he was chased by a Mouse who wore a Pink blouse and liked to swim in the Sea,
A Lion passed by who flew his kite in the sky while singing to two dancing Llamas,
and a juggling Giraffe was taking a bath while wearing his woolly Pyjamas!

A Monkey wore pink lipstick
as he laughed and baked a cake
and was followed round the kitchen by a disco dancing snake,
they were joined by a Rhino who was wearing underpants, shuffling his bum and joining in the dance,
then there came a Chicken who was roaring like a bear as and a skateboarding Elephant with long curly hair.

Tongue Twisting Twaddle
This one is for Don M. who bemoans the lack of serendipity on WOL and would like to see a bit more frippery.
That Gal Gladys
Could it be we take ourselves too seriously?
Maybe our pomp possy posing needs a little pricking, A little snacker snicking?
As Twiddly Thumb said to Twiddly Toe,
“That gal Gladys wuz really weird. Wherever did she go?”

Black and blue
A bruise's hue
And the colors of many others
Look up at the sky
On a stormy day
As the clouds cry
Blue and gray
Your silhouette black
Against the flash of the Lightning above
It's courage you lack
And your hopes fly away with the dove
It's not the lion, I'm afraid, that carries the pride
But the Lightning that paralyzed you as it bide...

The deed is done and guilt and fear come with it,
what am i hoping the effect will be?
I'm not sure to be completely honest..
it's a slight tad of happiness i get from it
but now i'm bitter and sad
Always something makes me immediately regret my actions
perhaps their is something i can prescribe myself to stop

Everyone needs a
Everyone needs a
To grow, To overcome
Without them, we are
But not everyone becomes the
And not everyone becomes the

There was a young man from Kyoto,
who was awfully fond of a photo,
when he saw a kimono,
his eyesight went mono,
and now a kimono’s a no-no.

Into the Wilderness
Into the wilderness we went. Edhweirft and Hwyrflung swirled above us, blowing and bustling through the treetops. Watching. Threatening. But maintaining a safe distance as the trees protected us
... we went, as the gloam drew in. Druuuuuin!! Closer. Druuuuuuuuiiiiinnnn!!!!! Closer. It hugs, this gloa...

You were a regular toothpick
And I have my Bashment classes
We frolicked in the eye of a toad just for something to do on a Wednesday
I scraped together all my width
And ordered it correctly
Like a spiral in a jam jar it spurred me on to justice
Make an apoplexy for your measly complexion
I lost it in a card game in the jaws of the abo-po-po
And in the heat of a ...

There is no order here,
There is no any sense.
Can you make it clear?
Can you change a pence?
On a tin there sat a cat
It looked exactly like a rat
Poor little biggie rat
It has swallowed a cat.
Little cow wore a wig
And the ground it could dig,
Like a purple brown pig
Sat on thin and thickest twig.
In the farm and in the z...

In a January morning,
On a sunny April day,
A crocodile croaks as it is May.
On the pavement bricks out of board,
There walks the tallest little lord.
In a hospital is healthy.
Poor man is so wealthy.
Fed to teeth I want to eat
And a cheat is so sweet.
Come my dears! Come to me!
I don’t want to see you.
Any false you say is true,
In the yar...

It’s a real story that happened in one school
when a teacher appeared to be a complete fool.
Once when a teacher of math was sick
a teacher of physical education came, named Nick.
He wanted to show how intelligent he is,
so he said: Solve my problem please!
The car moves at a high speed.
To go to Spain a plane we need.
How old am I if the plane now is high...

Crystals cover the ground
They sky is covered in clouds
They say that white is the color of absence
Just like the caterpillars in the spring,
eating all the pretty leaves,
you in a swift second
stealing all the color from the sky.
Gorging yourself o...

An endless supply of Mojitos
A wind-up radio
A wall to kick a ball against
Or a children’s pillow
A bar of soap, some sun cream,
Strings and strings of pearls
A virtual sherry trifle
Or a wide-eyed blow up girl.
Lifetime’s supply of champagne
A cup of jasmine tea
A pencil and some paper
A crate of scotch whiskey
The V&A Museum
A karaoke machin...
