“Last Years Shadow” by Mitch Hicks


Last years shadow
Where do they go
Shadows and years
Tell me
Do they age
Will my shadow live on
I hope so
Years are like bad dreams
They haunt you
More than you think
My shadow looked on as I was being exhumed
For the first time I saw my death face
Yes it was a dream
Seeing my demise looking grey but at peace
Years are like death they happen and don’t return
Make friends of your shadow
Dance with the year
Embrace both showing not an ounce of fear

Happy Birthday L.K. from The U.K.!!

Your Birthday Scrabble

Totting up the years you cunning fox
Hi to a cool cat with a heart of an ox
Dreaming puppy dog and pussy cat
Lordy smiles like a naff rat
Toasting your birthday we come en bloc
Some in a suit and some in a frock
Vee shaped cake to point the way
As simple as pi and music to sway
Poets mingle in the juice bar writing on the vine

Teas from around the world squeezed next to the wine
Miss Spellers crop tapping away on her leather boot
Ladyhawk has thoughts on her next exciting shoot
Lisa your skills I admire as a enigmatic fan
May your cheeks glow as I open another can

Just the one valt to go
A word it shall not show thee
Happy birthday from me

Thanks Mitch, there are no words…I’m speechless!

XOXO – LK 😛 😛
