Dreaming of Greatness


After a morning of preying on birds and mice

She realized an extended nap would be nice

The wooden deck was as warm as it seemed

My cat didn’t waste time to fall asleep and dream

Of parading through the garden as would someone royal

Her friends and her rivals all bowed as they were loyal

She climbed up the fence and perched atop tall and proud

The queen of the yard stretched forward and roared aloud

I watched her as she dreamt of ruling the world

And didn’t have the heart to wake my furry little girl

She eventually woke up and continued her daily routine

Which included brief naps and dreams of being Queen.

Treasure Hunter

For over 20 years he’s looked for his prize. 
What that is nobody knows. 
The residents don’t believe he has the eyes
To find his treasure below. 

The secret he holds will not be shared. 
Only you and he will know it. 
It’s not like a lot of people cared. 
And if they did they didn’t show it. 

Truth be told. This man is old. 
He is looking for his memories. 
Of the days when he was young. Those days when he was bold. 
His treasures are the missing stories.

“Walker”

There he was.
The man known as “Walker”
Quietly alone
not known as a talker
Just him and his thoughts
No one allowed
Room for just one
Two is a crowd
A monologue of dreams
of joys unrestrained?
His countenance says no
More frustration and pain
He’s won’t make friends
so it isn’t a shocker
He walks this life alone
The man known as “Walker.”
