Poetry Train….

Unicorn and King

It seems a foolish thing
To dream of unicorns and Kings.
To understand the voice of the clouds
As if they were talking out loud.

But what seems foolishness to some
Is ordinary life to one.
What dreams dance upon the air
Will allow only one to care.

Dare to hope that knowledge comes
With the rising of the sun.
Because with light, life might grow
Love might have a willingness to show.

Endlessly falling drops of rain,
Shower a heart with mists of pain.
Endlessly flowing icy breeze
Can cause a heart to freeze.

Mouth breaking into a welcoming smile
Can make up for that extra mile.
A being with a single horn
Can only be that faithful unicorn.

The King graces the palace of dreams,
While the unicorn sits and schemes.
What may seem foolish to some,
Is ordinary life for me.

TA Chase (c)2007

Have a great Monday.

    heyya TA – this was beautiful – i especially loved the opening stanza and the way it calls like the pied piper to those of us who live a little off to the side of so-called reality.
