~Thank you both Alan Johnson and Tulika Dugar. Much love to you both
“Awe,” the radiance; so bright.
Then, follow it, with all might.
The road course shall lead by day.
Rocks, turns, stickers and curves Climb anyway…
My prejudiced thoughts; lofty visions of you.
Fiery images deflect a golden hue.
Imagined you, bronzed, dazzling, and vein.
We danced; then came rain.
Caught too long there; my Idol thoughts; so dear.
Washed away; with my tear.
My arms bound, and mouth sealed.
Woven, hey! What’s the deal?
OH, My God! I’ve Been Caught!
The coven’s web intendedly taut!
The feast I am; His delight.
Oh, fairy friend! By the firelight! Here I am!
Now the spiders home virtually unseen
vaguely tucks into that corner beam.
But, see the dim light, growing so bright?
A fairy then severs the silk, so tight.
And, falling from the web of fright.
Still arms tangled by silk threads
Pushing out; bracing the fall
The spider and the fairy brawl
wham, bam, to and fro,
from the deathly fight, they bow
Looking, whom’s, my fairy friend?
Noticing it must be Joe.
Underneath the spider Joe waves thumbs up, You’re alright!
Now run like hell! To the light!
Run away little bait! For, the fate of the firefly might be too late…
