~ Cheshire Moon ~

The moon wears a Cheshire Cat grin tonight,
As if mocking the strobes,
Of heat-lightning which flash,
On the opposite side of the night sky.

The first drop of rain has not fallen,
Nor sounded the first, distant peal of thunder.
The frogs, in their ghostly chorus,
Are glad that so far, it’s only a light show.

And I, looking into that starry void,
On the eve of the first of April,
Am I but another fool?
I wished on Rigel tonight.

I see that pale, illuminated smile,
Waxing into madness, perhaps.
After all, we’re all mad here.
The only place left to go is back,
To the frontal lobe.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.
