The Boy Who Knew …

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




Dedicated to:

… 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 …

Christmas Memories #poetry

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.
