Ode to a Mosquito

Ode to a Mosquito ode

O lady of the night
O lady mosquito
What cruel trick of nature
Would divine to make it so
That war must rage
In perpetuality
Where you should seek
To give me strife
And I should seek
To take your life

What calamity!
What strangest fate!
That my blood must be drawn
For you to procreate
And added to this
Indignity
For to be
Without my feeling
You must secrete a venom
Itchy. Bleeding.

But there it is
What can be done?
Nature has spoken
The battle’s begun
For She has made
The sad decree
We must be locked
In enmity
And I might attack
With mighty zeal
But you will forever
Bruise my heel

Fly   Flight   An Ode To Birds long poem

Birds levitate and are airborne, Flapping wings soaring to the highest stratosphere, Flying into the blue yonder, Over snowcapped mountains, abutting the clouds, Flying, gliding, landing, so sublime Perching themselves in the tiny gap between other birds on a cable

Ode To Dagga ode

Come back to me. I yearn your bitter, yet velvety touch. You make me blush, I miss you in my lungs. Come back to me. You fill the void that you re-create, Every time I let you escape, From a

An Ode The The Divine!

An Ode The The Divine! short poem

You curled, cruised, kicked and got her crazy She enjoyed a cocktail of emotions and images all so fuzzy You slumbered after all wailing and weep She comforted you all night trading her sleep You talked miles and miles She
