Masque Balls (Republished)

MASQUE BALLS

Waking dreams, flights of fancy;
mind’s eyes bright as phantasy,
conjoined twins wax ecstatic.
Tripping lightly the old fantastic,
“To battle!” both genders cry,
as ladies, painted, bustle slyly by,
caught up in nature’s rapture,
discreetly intent on decorous capture;
while line on line of plumed hussars
– Theirs not to reason why – give forth huzzahs.

Musings on the mating game.

Nesting Dolls

NESTING DOLLS

Life’s a tragedy
Caught fast within their costumes
The actors expire

Backstage real life breeds
More down to earth deceptions
Still rôles; still acting

Preaching To The Choir

United In Love

…..
PREACHING TO THE CHOIR

To live and let live
Not fighting over plumbing
You get the message
