I ‘m an average boy
two arms two legs
and a mind that can …
…Take me for a ride to the moon
tame a wild black stallion with my voice
fearlessly ride on the back of a T-Rex
all this morning’s choice
In the afternoon …
I am a cowboy on a long dusty trail
a sailor tied to the wreckage of my ship
a man-eating tiger out for an evening stalk
a tightrope walker my feet never slip
…In my dreams I go places do things
reach the highest heights
and then tomorrow
I do it
… my dear friend with Aspergers who is sooo intelligent and at 7 is harassed by other boys because he knows too much. I know where he goes in his mind – I want to go there with him.
Today on MDW Thursday, I am featuring Jason Bourne. This poem is dedicated to Jason and others …
Daddy it’s been five long years
many miles many tears
Christmas the sweetest times
memories so clear
Paper Bag masked santa
a bug making set the next
we weren’t together often
but you made every moment last
I still have things on the tree
they were yours
now they are mine
memories yes sweet sir
you and I in younger times
Thanks to One Stop for letting me feature those who will not be with us this Christmas but are there in the lights and the sounds all the same.
Please check out the music prompt in One Stop Poetry today. I had fun – though it stretched my writing. Hope you feel challenged to write a poetry prompt as well. you can also sit back for a moment and enjoy the wintry sounds of George Winston.

I was encouraged to write as a teen; that encouragement made all the difference.
