Brain Gypsy

So
You promised
You’d never forget,
You’d keep me always in your
Mind.

You
Reduced me
To a memory,
Demoted from eternal
Love.

A
Brain gypsy,
A nomadic flash,
Roaming unseen within your
Head.

You’d
Rather feel
The breeze than my touch.
To reminisce is all you
Need.

I’m
A relic
Worth recollection,
Unfit for a place in your
Heart.

Xanadu

SFoxWriting’s Alphabet Challenge ~ “X”

So the letter “X” fell on my 40th birthday. I was tempted to post nothing but pictures of this date from different calendars all crossed out with giant “X”s. However, I’m not THAT mad about it. Besides, it was a lot more fun to write about my favorite place on planet Earth, my Xanadu, the cottage. My Dad has this amazing escape on a lake up north. There are no motors allowed on the lake. It is quiet. There is no cell phone reception. It is peaceful. We are surrounded by hills and trees. It is beautiful. We have fires and roast marshmallows. It is entertaining. When the silence needs to be broken, we ride ATVs or do some target practice. It is utopia.

Still
Pure crisp air
Placid blue waters
Escape to serenity
Peace
Calm
It is here that I am found
When life goes astray
My Eden
Home

The beach house rules are easy to follow, and contain a few “x”s.

Ornamental

SFoxWriting’s Alphabet Challenge ~ Letter “O” ~ A poem titled “Ornamental” in oddquain form.

The
chosen one,
another bauble
to adorn His Majesty’s
arm.

A
dream come true
once upon a time,
before forgotten was her
name.

Now
an item,
a collectible,
merely a trinket of the
King.

Yes
she’s become
but ornamental,
a simple hollow piece of
art.

The
florid mask
in her reflection
obscures the void within her
soul.
