A Quick Trip Through Wonderland

A Quick Trip Through Wonderland

A Poem by *~*Butterfly Kisses*~*
"

Not my best, I suppose. But it's my favorite childhood story.

"

Take a quick trip with me,

Down into a rabbit hole

Where things barely make sense

In the reality world

But where imaginations are filled

With many impossiblities

Making sense only

In the eyes of a dreamer.

 

Tick tock, goes the clock

As a snowy rabbit passes us by

Running late for some unknown date

Disappearing as we venture deeper,

Into a land filled with the unexpected

Nightmares and dreams at every turn.

 

Purple ghostly eyes at a glance

In the curiousity

Of one bewildered cat

Stalking us through our deep adventure

Like he's searching for some prey.

 

A short little smoke,

Of second hand smoke

From a certain riddling caterpillar

And to add to the riddles of this wondrous land

Two silly twins we're sure to find.

As we ponder at their intellegence,

They must have smoked some funny thing

But with their curious hilarious antics and quarrels

They are sure to make us giggle.

 

Traveling deeper into a land of curiosity

Into the blackened forest we roam,

Where mushrooms soar as high as the sky

We see a huge dining table and gathering friends.

 

A dormouse tempting us with tea

Celebrating a very unhappy birthday

For a peculiar hatted man,

Reveling within his own dark mind

As he leaves a question or two in our heads.

 

The red queen of too many broken hearts

As she revels within her misery.

So much time she spent looking for love,

It's one of her greatest mysteries.

To be loved, or to be hated,

I doubt anyone will ever know

As she miserably sits upon her throne

We run, as she shouts

 "OFF WITH THEIR MORTAL HEADS!"

 

Dragons soar the vast open skies,

So strange since we're beneath the ground.

But what a sight it is, indeed.

 

Our journey is nearly over now,

As we try desperately to return home

A special white queen so full of kindness

Helping us find our way.

 

What a shame to return to reality

But what an adventure we've had

Into a world where dreams collide

As we return to our plain old mortal lives.

 

A lesson to be learned,

Always follow your heart

You'll never know the adventure

You will find.

 

But one more thing before we part,

An answer remains to be found.

Why is a raven like a writing desk?

A question forever lingering within our minds.

This is brilliant! A wonderful, thoughtful summary of the classic tale of insane adventure. A few of my favorite lines -
"Tick tock, goes the clock
As a snowy rabbit passes us by"
"What a shame to return to reality
But what an adventure we've had
Into a world where dreams collide"
"But one more thing before we part,
An answer remains to be found.
Why is a raven like a writing desk?
A question forever lingering within our minds."
That last line is amazing. WELL DONE.
(P.S. - You made me want to watch this movie again)

Brilliant. That's what this was. The story by Lewis Carroll is a classic because its imaginative nature, and you brought it all perfectly back to life, making me recall my own traipse though Wonderland. Your imagery was great, the display of the many characters and circumstances fit the book well, and I'd have to say that this is, put simply, an excellent tribute to an excellent piece of literature.

I enjoyed this story. I like the journey you took me with you in your words. Good to have imagination even when we old and gray. Thank you for the outstanding poetry.

A fond story, illustrating that we need not fear the rabbit hole; that in some way, we are all a part of that experience as we reach for those hard to get places. A poem that tempts, with ' the further you get out to shore, the closer you are to the other side.'

An excellent tribute to an excellent story.. it would have been real fun if we had adventures like that. .. it would have broken the monotone of our lives.. a very well penned down poen and very vivid imagery loved the way you ended it..
"An answer remains to be found.

It is better to have a few questions unanswered.. that would build up the the mystery that we call life.. Thanks for sharing.. :)

very creative, the imagery is supers, the asynchronous use of words enunciates the action in the concept/imagery.. i enjoyed reading your work... and i will be reading more of it.
