My favorite Devonshire

Two Heads Better than One

I walked the high wire for all to see
There wasn’t even a net ‘neath me
     It gave folks some chills
     I never had spills
Till a twister rolled in; I flew free

The big tent collapsed and caused panic
As I hung in air -- sort of static --
     The crowd had dispersed
     Good grief, how I cursed
As the twister took leave, I grew manic

More than a hundred feet I did fall
Got caught in the fortune teller’s shawl
     Our careers went on
     Though the tent is gone
A two-headed lady we are called

Carolyn Devonshire

I've been reading through your poetry all morning, Carolyn.  You must be very special to be the subject of a contest and I sure see your poetry is special.   Out of  your deep and unique musings I chose Two heads.    It gave me such a laugh and a surprise on this glum rainy morning.   I could not imagine where you would "land" as you hung in the air.  What a relief to know you had company at the finale.  Friends always break the fall, yes?  
 
Thank you for the good reading and I wish you peace.

love,
Kathy

    Hi Keith - I wish I could take credit here. The poem is by Carolyn Devonshire. There is a contest to pick a favorite from her collection and explain your choice. I guess I didn't make her authorship clear. You are right! It deserves kudos.

    Hi Karen - If you'll read my comment to Keith you'll see I cannot take credit. It is in her honor I posted the poem. Isn't it a spectacular poem? love, Kathy

    a fun choice - I can't believe that I haven't seen any repeated, at least not yet! that's pretty cool! she'll definitely love the assortment of poems we all chose.
