In front of the tall mirror leaning against the wall
the cat adjusted his hat
and stood up tall.
In the band he placed a feather and a clock on a stick
and applied some eyeliner at least an inch thick.
He slipped his bow tie around his neck
and gave himself one last check.
Pocket Watch and cane
some might call him vain but
he cares not
to him it’s all the same.
Off to the tea party at Alice’s
he shouldn’t be late
having already RSVP’d the date.
But to make a grand entrance you can’t be on time
and you must be sure your shoes have a shine.
Knock Knock Knock
on the door
which actually the floor…
or ground I should say
where the flowers grow all day.
The little patch slips quietly open to reveal a slide
sitting down you take a little ride.
Spiraling down as you go you see the Art of Van Gogh
and words of Edgar Allen Poe.
Landing softly on a fort of pillows it’s hard to maintain your dignity in such a state
then you see the cookies on the plate
and once again all is swell
you may even take a turn at dipping the pen in the ink well.
Scribble some thoughts upon the wall
a moment of time left for all.
The words that read…I’ll leave you with this
Life’s just a Beautiful Mess.
Well, I don’t know about you but I like today’s free verse hippie poetry. I don’t know where these things come from. I just sit down and start typing the words I hear in my head, do you think this makes me crazy, it’s ok if it does, I like it. Lol. I didn’t know what I wanted to paint today but now I do!! I can’t wait to get started!! Have whimsical day my friend and try to stop by again tomorrow!! Much Peace Love Art 😀
