Escaping the Mazes

Mazes upon mazes of glass mirrors

Wrapped inside a house of cards

Finding yourself amidst the fog and the confusion

Ever so gently as to not sweep the entire masterpiece away

All that you have…away

Judge wisely, dear girl

The King could knock down more than just the masterpiece

Brutally, brutally

Think for a spell

And your entire world has gone to hell

To get a smile out of your misery; they laugh, they laugh

One reflection smiles back confidently

While another shakes its head; avoiding your gaze

Is it right? Was it right?

Never-ending twists, unforgettable turns

Will we ever find the way, away

Or such is life?

Constant mazes

Constant mirrors

In a not-so-constant house of cards

Will we ever find the escape?

The Weather of the Brain

There was a light in the distance; an off-shade of ruby.

Before I could stop it, the blast shocked me.

And it was as if the child’s spirit in me was crying and screaming in the same moment.

However, I was filled with neither sorrow nor anger.

I was still standing there with a glow on my face.

Despite what took place at a crossroads that night.

You never thought to take a glimpse at that crystal ball.

But it flourished before Glenda could ever catch the clue.

You escaped Oz before it turned on you; before they had a chance to send you home.

No, I say, I’m staying right here.

I like the flying monkeys and the golden road that led me to fear and courage

All mixed into the same storm.

No fancy shoes for her.

No, I say, I’m staying right here.

Stuck in this sun-filled, blue-skied image.

The light, an off-shade of ruby, was the unknown beacon;

The unknown beacon to the most pleasant of daydreams.

Tanka: 8: An Ode

and this is an ode,

sounding clever, sounding soft.

and it captures how

the sun feels of open road,

and the moon provides escape.
