I Wish I Could Be A Child Again...

Poem By Meann Santiago

Come into my magic garden
safe behind an old brick wall.
Lawned pathways will invite you,
can you hear them as they call?

There is beauty all around you,
if only you can see.
If not, smell exotic fragrance,
from the Frangipani tree.

Jolly jingling dancing bells
like gems, reflect on water still.
Nature blushed with many colours
from the Master Artists skill.

Every type of bird a twittering,
tweeting, sing song melody.
Safe, inside my magic garden,
from all foes that there might be.

Such sweet serenity I'm assured,  
would your sense intoxicate.
As you enter, my magic garden,
sieved through - 
The Spiderweb Gate.

Mr Robin Comes For Tea

When Mr Robin Redbreast comes to call on me
I like to open windows wide and ask him in for tea.
We both could share a fairy cake, or buns all topped with ice
Banoffee Pie or Tiramisu, yes both would be quite nice.

Sangrida's Supremacy

Calling forth Thunder, Lightning and Raging Rain
Gloved hands, like ink dipped limbs extend.
No man alive her power could ever constrain
Or suspend… sound or light or waters, portend.

Awakening Days

Drawn up by an invisible thread,
new life springs up towards the sun.
Escape from ground and leaves now dead,
from rotten decay of life past done.

Gerbil For Dinner

I invited Greg Gerbil for dinner,
he's such a good friend to me
he taught me to cook, like a sinner
I put on two pounds,  can you see?

A Land Of Dreams

Step off into a land of dreams
of mind and beauty but nothing real
where life is full of fairy schemes
so warm and soft a thought - ideal.

My Dark Asylum

Mystic metal, writhing, twisting, touch ice cold
Forms foreboding, barring entry, guarding paths threshold.
Dreadful shivers, fear provoking motion frozen still
Must move forward, ring for entry, forced by will.
