Dancing all around
Frolicking through fields

Just like you!

as you go
its part the show
to sit

the movies not miss
or parts not torn

Picture a moment in time
Held captive in a frame
Old memories come back to life
Treating us to glimpses
Of treasures from the past

There's No Place Like Home

Once was a gal who felt so alone
Tornato came up rooted farms home
Landed on wicked  witch
Munchkins came out of ditch
Gave dog lollypops instead of bone

Studio of destiny

only You can understand
the heat of mirrors
the brightness of cameras
the resistance of perfumes
the pain of existence
before the cold shower
in the studio of destiny

Mind Movies

Mind movies in Kodachrome
and vibrant technicolour 
set to rewind
Whenever shades of negative
dampen the spirit
and plague the mind.

George Baily-It's A Wonderful Life

Told he was worth more dead than alive,
A wingless angel changed George's perspective.
Had George not been born, his town would be Hell.
When Clarence earned his wings, it rang a bell.

The Last Music

they heard the faint strains
of 'Amazing Grace' playing
on Scottish bagpipes

static and then buzz
a new pod victim had left
a radio on...

***Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Re-make - 1978)

Batman And Robin


Batman and Robin hit the Joker
But their blow was only a croaker
The Joker hit back
But instead hit Jack
Who said "I'm glad, the Joker's an smoker!

As at the cinema

The life made a film just for me 
was my producer. 
I was the actor and the creator. 
I created every day as my last one. 
The end of the film was unknown...
Precisely as at the cinema

Picture Perfect

Take a picture. 
Halfway between, two extremes, film exposed to light; 
Corrupt or cleansed, shaking hands, or about to fight. 

Make a picture. 
Roll film right back, start again, I am what you see.
More film to load, left alone, so many stills to be.

Jack Reacher the Movie

He watched the show, sitting on the bleachers,
that author Lee Child,
as his creation, the great Jack Reacher,
became five foot seven, meek and mild.

NOTE: I'm sure I'm not the only one who was gravely disappointed at Tom Cruise playing Jack Reacher. *sigh*

Short Film poem by Margaret Bonnette| Details | |


By twilight we shall reach Torchwood
to spy on an insane time lord
let's delete him
then send him
straight to Mt. Erebor
then knock out a lowly hobbit,
kidnap him
and toss him in the Tardis
Once he wakes up
we take a step back
to see what happens next!

O Jollywood Arise

As they bask in the glory of Hollywood
Those in India will speak of Bollywood
And oftentimes remember Tollywood
Which must have preceded Bollywood
And even Nigeria’s own Nollywood
Which precedes our own Jollywood
O Kenyan cinema arise!
O Jollywood arise!

Short Film poem by Jon A Cavanaugh| Details | |

The matinee

Remember the Sunday matinee
With popcorn, pop, and cracker jacks
A dark cool theatre with movie screen
A front row seat where we'd relax

I pine for those nostalgic days
Days we got fresh milk by truck
The matinee was ten cents then
Probably now more than a buck

The reflected tree

in negative temperature
on whitened branch
refracting winter's dark
inversing frosted blanch

pitch to mirrored pool
of symmetry below
in opposite of dual - 
serene in its afterglow

Short Film poem by richard nah| Details | |

Will you like to go out with me?

Will you like to go out with me?

I saw a film today,
a film of me and you;
Then I had a dream, 
a dream of our being;
It looked so good, so innovating ...
You took my hand,
telling me the truth in every bits of your words;
And like the moon standing with its star, 
I now ask you;

Will you like to go out with me?
