Cocooned

Cocooned

 

Finding new complexity in hand writing dexterity

Searching for lost artistry in the guise of poetry.

 

At times the images so surreal, in my mind a cotton reel

Unravels till a tangled thread weaves a web around my bed

Then ‘Itsy Bitsy’ comes to call. Arachnophobia cause me to fall

Awaking with a nasty bump, in my throat a ticking lump.

As I yawn, a black widow falls and bites my naked toe.

Then scampers off somewhere to hide… No antidote to be applied

What will now become of me, and my newly found complexity?

At the proverbial ‘curling up of toes’, ‘Itsy Bitsy’ runs up my nose,

and proceeds to weave a silver thread, that leads me back into my bed

A cobweb covered woven duvet, now shrouds a corpse when once I lay

                                                                                                        Po

Big Guy I can't see anything stopping you Buddy!

I think I might make this my 'first' audio posting.

My recording/video studio is almost ready to Rock n Roll !

Jon, yes indeed thank you very much.

I am just starting to understand how important WOL actually is, not just too myself.

It is a home for the elderly
a home for the young
a home for newbies
a home for mature poets and great sages (This is your category jon) ;0)
a home for misfits that fit nowhere and everywhere (I think this is mine)
a home for all kinds thankfully.

Big Guy I don't know where you fit because you are all and none of the above my old mucker... not a misfit that's for certain.

This error can simply be ignored by clicking the flower and then the back tab < and then writing your comment if you wish...
and Hit 'Add Comment' followed by the < back tab as soon as you see the fatal error message appear.

Hopefully Big Guy and Jon together we can get this sorted.

Kindest thoughts and well wishes to you both

I've done this three times in the past week, so here's number 4:

Contact Paul Emberson if you can Po, I hear he's the technical support for WOL. Either post on a Discussion board saying "Help" or something of the sort, contact the moderator team of WOL, or maybe even one of the other WOL admins.

Sorry I can't be of more help, and to be honest I doubt you'll even get this. But if you do, at least my messages and comments are going through, it just still puts an error up.

OMG!

I can't help but wonder if I have had the fatal of all errors!

Perhaps I have had the demise all performers dread

The corpse of the dead.

Maybe my last line is actually truly Prophetic !

As apposed to Po phetic.

Big Guy I got your comment my friend. Thank you for your support and your continuous encouragement that goes a long way in helping me to create and be inspired to do greater things.

Reading this makes me want to watch a Tim Burton film.
I get a slightly chilling feeling, yet I sense some humor and childlike innocence in this piece. I really enjoyed it. Thanks for making my day.
