Chelsea Morning

Chelsea Morning

A Poem by barleygirl
"

falling further from reality . . .

"

Woke up, it was a chelsea morning
and upon a lively quail’s decree
buzzy bumblebee stumbles over me
his peachy purrs of honey hyperbole
sweet pea tangles the tangerine trees
butterscotch drizzles sun-quench me
lemony lyrics bounce a jouncing jubilee
wild turkeys swig our whiskey for free
a grapefruit-pink crystal ball wannabe
yaps her chancy chelsea guarantee
sand-prancing fleas by a seething sea
cavorting with delirious dexterity
dumbfounded by such fervent artistry
somersaults surge on sensually
spiral swan is poking dawn oh so playfully
daffodils fling glitter spills of golden chelsea
surfing by on wild waves of endless ecstasy
how can a day fritter away oh so carelessly?

Maybe quitting my satellite TV is causing me to lose touch . . .

Indeed if this is losing touch I want some. It takes the pain away and what a way to go me thinks. Why not? Each day to savour me thinks!

Margie dear... sweet pea tangles the tangerine trees...
buzzy bumble bee stumbles over me... these are a few of
my favorite things... seeing the first pink blossoms of our Crepe Myrtle trees...
feeling the sensual breeze with a temperature of 90 degrees.
Hope you enjoy my collaboration review by me and me. hugs, Pat
