Belle of the Ball
Mildred sat in her rocking chair
The setting sun highlighting her silver hair
Reflecting on her many, many years
Her eyes glistened with joyful tears
All the times both good and bad
And how she missed her husband Brad
They had been to such great places
She...Read More

November Twinkle fairy was feeling very low,
to the Giggle Night Ball she had wanted to go 

But her gold fairy wings were all tattered and torn -
she’d landed in a thicket, they’d caught on a thorn

And she got into a...Read More

Spring is the belle of the ball
in Her gown of floral print.
And ridding the carousel 
of life, her carriage arrives.

Tethered to a treetop breeze
She unfurls emerald leaves.
And brushes budding branches
enticing sweet sap to rise.

Tending to Nature's garden
She nurtures pussy willows.

My Christmas tree in sparkling dress
stands in my window to impress.
She smiles at all the passersby.
She waves hello.  She is not shy.

She winks at all the trees she sees
in nearby houses on the street.
She seems to shiver with delight

A flamingo asked a fer-de-lance
To be his date to a high school dance.
"Oh, you don't want to dance with me.
I've neither arms nor legs, you see."

"You can still play the perfect role.
We'll enter the limbo contest,

Azalea! Belle of the ball
Elegant stylish grace,
Flowing swirls,
Shades of pink satin
Air of sophistication,
Awakening imaginations 
Love and nature,
Played a part,
Warm breezes swayed,
Different dream worlds,
Dancing emotions waltzed,
Romance bloomed,
Midnight hopes disappeared,
Twelve o’clock struck,
Cinderella! 
A fairy tale,
But for Azalea,
She remains
Always and forever,
A very beautiful...Read More

It was just another Saturday night,
wasn't with nobody
My pockets were full
and my heart was on call
I was dressed to the nines,
and my hair was laid just fine

I made the usual walk through,

The Ice Dancer.

She got up each morning
at the crack of dawn,
did toe loops like no-one,
all part of the sport,
her triple axles
were a sight to behold,
as they followed her progress
she had them in awe.

Her steps were so light that
they couldn’t believe,
how...Read More

my new peach dress
so fastidiously pressed
in hope that a man will seek to caress

Belle

Belle of the ball, darling of every man’s eye, 
I floated ‘neath my emerald gown gracefully
So many pretty men held out their hand to me
Spurning them coquettishly, I batted eyelashes
behind which my predator’s eyes ravaged
each suitor
Beauty resplendent, darling of no...Read More

Masquerade
You saunter through the double doors
Head held high
Chest puffed out
Putting on airs
You think you’re so clever, so deceiving
Showing up baring the most ornate mask
But I see right through
The mask that you wear tonight
You think it will conceal
You think just tonight
