Monday WRites 33

animation from google dot com


JABBERWOCKY
The blank writer
A page stares at her
She pins her frowns and sighs
To a wandering horse
Running wild and free
Carrying all her words
In syllables
To the gallop of hoofs
Whose rhythm
Canters in the morning dew
To rise with whinnying breath
In the meadows
Laced with sweet wildflowers
Patterning a grassy mound
Unkempt
For such as meadows are
To run wild and free
Wind blown and yielding
And so it was:
Three friends they sat
With coffee and with tea
And sort to spend in jabberwocky
The animal, each would want to be.

  7. Loved the horse and that took me on a ride through the meadows. But the jabberwock scares me. I assume you are referring to the Jabeerwock with its eyes of flame from Alice in Wonderland.

    1. Suzy, I used jabberwocky here to mean small talk, nonsense talk

  8. I wish I could ride a horse. Your poem gathers words that fly as beautifully as the mane of the horse that carries them.
