I have collaborated with Beckie of Beckie’s Mental Mess on two poems so far:
- In Search of Happiness:
2. The Creation (about the Creative writing process)
And here is the start of a third:
I’d like to travel far and wide,
and explore some exotic climbs,
From the Himalayan mountainside,
a panoramic view, one can witness at any given time,
When watching television, staring google-eyed,
but to actually go there physically would be something quite sublime.
Far off lands and sunny coastlines,
I watch this television, envious of the people enjoying their time.
And from me:
It’s time for me to taste some Italian wines,
get up and journey to far-flung lands, divine
Indulge in fine cuisine while I dine,
to savor the flavor from ripened grapes, straight from the vine.
My next bit (sorry for the delay):
Travel to London, and sail down the serpentine,
that’s something that’s always been a dream of mine.
Beckie’s next bit:
Imagine, the Changing of The Guard, strickly on time
and wouldn’t it be a hoot to have the Queen drive by?
And from me:
And if it’s Christmas season, I could take in a Pantomime,
or buy a ‘Whistle and Toot’ which, by the way, is Old Cockney Rhyme.
Off to search the medieval castles of The Isle of Skye,
afterward, visit Portree’s little boutiques and pubs on the harbourside.
Where there’s much more to see than ever meets the eye,
From glen to glade, where once a Bonnie Prince did hide.
Back to you, Beckie 😉
“The Hills Are Alive With The Sound of Music!” I belt out a tune to some passerby,
Just one glance and they think of me as a wiseguy.
You’re up next, Kristian …
