Let us kick the Sky
29 November 2012 @ 22:30

Let us kick the Sky
 
Take my arm and let us go upon our merry way,
And I shall whistle happy tunes to lift our feet of clay;
One step forward, then again; let’s kick our toes up high;
We shall be so fun-filled, dear; well poke them at the sky.
 
Don’t be slow as off we go, your breast, my upper arm;
A comfort to my soul and heart; I sense your inner warmth:
And I will banter with you, dear: and lightly dance you may,
As we together – always one, go on our merry way.
 
How your laugh makes lighter, the skies and too the heart;
I loved you from that moment when we made our happy start.
If you sometimes turn to thought,
That journey’s end will be for naught;
Raise your face and lift your heart;
We’ll both go back; repeat the start.
 
The Unseen Guest
 
There's a skeleton inside me, perhaps you didn’t know;
It stays with me both night and day, goes everywhere I go.
You may tease but as I say; I tell you it is true,
And if you have a mind to know, there’s one inside you too.
 
At exercise it’s not the best, and when it bends it groans;
It’s only what you might expect, for it is only bones.
If they took me all away and left bare bones to see,
Perhaps you’d better know, my dear, the other part of me.
 
Now if we have a skeleton inside of you and me,
Let’s make no bones about it; we never want it free.
Unseen, unloved, devoted; it is with us to the breath;
We breathe our last, our twosome joined by someone known as death.

Both whimsical of course, and like most poetry, take it as you find it. Both were penned yesterday (28.11.12) during an idle coffee break. I recently published my third poetry collection: Diamonds Last Forever. As I don’t write poetry for money I am not interested in royalties. 70 percent of the cover price of each copy is passed to a Latvia children’s charity.
