Songs Without Music–Poetry: Your Place

Wanna go to someplace crazy?
Like a dream that’s warm and lazy?
Well no need for you to travel far.
You need no plane or train or car.
Just close your eyes and make believe.
And from the normal you will leave.
Into a land that’s all your own.
Where nonsense is and logic’s blown.
Create a world for only you.
Where you can do what you wish to.
Where no one can bug you or make you upset.
And the more you imagine the better it gets.
When the everyday world gets too out of hand.
You can escape from it all to your own special land.
Swing from a moonbeam.
Dive from a star.
Into infinity.
Contained in a jar.
Make up all the rules.
And then break them at will.
Do what you wish if it gives you a thrill.
And when you’re thought to be strange,
As you look off into space.
They’re the ones missing out on your wonderful place.

Songs Without Music–Poetry: Welcome

dizzy patterns on the wall
forms a tunnel down the hall
tipsy topsy and a turn
makes my stomach bounce and burn
plastic rainbow colored grass
on the floor thats made of glass
mushrooms sprouting here and there
tye-dyed frogs all leap in pairs
reaching up are cosmic vines
dancing, twisting, intertwines
a rainbow released from the tip
roots beneath that make me trip
pastel and flourescent waters
waves up and down like teeter-totters
transluscent ships composed of pearls
gliding over dips and whirls
being chased is not much fun
get up on my feet and run
running, running through this nation
welcome…to my imagination
