The Crone ran short of gossip so she went to the top of the palm

with 6 comments

Crone was running short of things to say
so she had the little monkey take her once more
to the top of the palm tree, near to the shore
where she took her binoculars
found in her sights:
a pirate ship pirating
a miners minering
a lazy lady sleeping in a hammock on Owl Island
a boss lady wielding a whip
a doll maker making a magic doll
two other old crones, was that a brawl?
photographers photographing all of the sights
and an old man with a lantern lighting the lights
by day
What are they doing? remains to be seen
she thinks they planning the dread
hallowe’en
Her note pad is full so she waits to be taken
back to her computer to get it all down
before the ink fades
and she’s driven from town

The Crone’s witches on holiday

with 7 comments

The kitchen witches , Crone is glad to say
have done so much work they need a holiday
so the dear ladies found their very best hats
and cleaned all the brooms and found
the old red canoe, they are on their way
to the city of ladies to spend and to talk
to the waiter who serves them so well.
So don’t be surprised if you find a canoe
parked beside your convertible or a wandering witch
shopping for new straw or a few
little black bats and a stray cat or two
If you would like a chat please join the big table
and try the very best brew if you’re brave from their jug

(They might even offer you a ride )

Thursday morning tea

with 2 comments

Seniors day at our Cafe
The elders meet and greet
talk of the day,the weather, the news or when Old Seventy
sold her shoes for a pair of red gumboots
or the time that Fifty-Seven met Sixty-two
or the grandchild that swallowed the cherries
from Grandma’s hat
and had to be pumped–now that
reminds me,  “Do you recall that time you painted
Gran’s   Cadilac  firy red with the can we found
by Gramp’s old barn?”

Square dance meetings in Poplar School
or teacher Black who broke her rule
over Bill’s hard head?  Wasn’t she the one
we caught kissing Jim’s brother?  And how we teased
her next day ’till she blushed?

Crone takes her cronies to afternoon tea

with 7 comments

Crone has  taken her  cronies to tea
at  the inn where the chef makes the  best
steaming oysters
and scallops
and things in their shells
all served by himself with a most haughty style
ignoring their hats
and their smiles  
He serves out the fishes and each gets a dollop
of cream
or some pepper to taste
A tall jug of magic brew
will be enough for one or two   
Will you join them?

Visiting

with 4 comments

This morning crone spent at her desk in the high tower

looking back

looking over

reading the works of the elders and the others

so sends out a message to all of us who live in this space

Please do as I have done, read back a while, go through the list of us

and wonder at the diversity, detail, breadth, fun

and tell each other what a joy it is to see what we have made together.
