If I Die Young

I do not fear
an early departure for me.
It is she I worry about.
This I plainly see.

I will be cruising the cosmos
on gossamer wings.
She will be left here on earth
dealing with my things.

If I die young,
I hope she knows
of the love deep inside
that everyday grows
in me...

Lost in Space

Plasma ray torpedoes fired...
how would I escape...?
Suddenly woken
from my nightmare...
bright light pouring in
to starboard window...
star sucked into black hole...
Spaceometer reading 8 b ly...
CPS unit reading...
A laugh out loud moment...
save for being lost...
at the edge...
of the universe.

Rainbow of My Mind

delicate seed planted
in god's rich earth...
lucky to sprout,
determined to survive...
stalk reaching to sky,
bending to sun,
of fickle breezes...
bursting forth
with bud,
none too soon
for me...
petals unfolding,
blossom revealing
the rainbows
in my mind...
the musical color
in the depths
of my soul...
"Vous etes mon soleil,
apport de la lumiere
a ma nuit foncee"

Thus, my offering for this week's Centus...prompted by the famous song title, "You are my sunshine." A lovely song, a delightful, swaying undoubtably sung from many a saddle...please take the time to check out what often prove to be remarkable stories, poetry and such at Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus. I am now going to check out the last 7 entries from last week...because I should, and because it will give me twice the chance to win Jenny's special prize...and I'm all for prizes ;-)
