>It is my home big tent poetry #26 write from a sketch from your home

>A decoupage created from my life
Colours are vibrant and alive
Chagall, Van Gogh and Dali

Freida sits at an easel, sorrowful
Che with a Cuban cigar,
smoke curls round his mustache
mingles, as the devil hides in the guestroom
Waiting for me to sleep,
So he can dance round the room
To his solemn tune

An angel lives under my kitchen sink
I’ve seen her wings and cherub face
A gallery of faces
Mirrors in every room

An eagle at my front door grasps a snake
in its beak
Mayans watch my cat, sleeping on the couch
While lazy dogs lie in the morning sun
Who created this catastrophe?

Wormwood grows wild in the garden
Spirits roam looking for a place to rest
Candles light the way, while I place
marigolds on the table

  1. >Half dream, half nightmare? Your poem took me to places I could not have imagined. Bravo!If beneath your sink is anything like mine, it would be a kindness to find a more salubrious home for the angel.

  2. >Now that's quite a dwelling. I'd like to see the sketch that generated this powerful, hallucinatory depiction.
