This tile like many of mine is fictitious,
Then again it could be true.
The decision dear reader,
Is truly up to you.



My ESCAPE INTO THE POET TREE

Out in my garden,
There's a archway within,
My favourite poet tree.
It's a portal within a portal,
To all the worlds between.

It's almost as though,
It contains my dreams.
The vail between each world,
Is thinner than it seems.

That's where I met mysteriously,
The friends of mine.
Yes it's true,
I put them in my rhymes.

They say the time is near,
Where between our earth's.
The portals over time,
Between us will disappear.

Time is relative so I hear,
The merger between us.
Will surely not happen,
For at least a billion years.

When I first went through,
The portals opened up to me.
That's where I met,
My first idle flower tree.

To me it was like,
Thousands of trains.
Travelling over time,
Alas I couldn't contain,
Them within my mind.

Then I meet the pink elephants,
And saw there footprints.
Glowing in the snow,
It was something spectacular.
Why they were glowing,
I guess I'll never know.

Wonder's that I saw,
Cities floating of the ground.
Cheeselets scampering openly,
Across the floor and of course
There was many, Many more.

I guess that when it's my time to go,
I won't let them take my soul.
I'll scurry to meet Alice,
Down the rabbit hole.

Where all the creatures,
That have would ever be.
Living life peacefully:
Within the portals opened,
By the poet tree.

There really is a treacle and
a flour mine, I know this for sure.
Whether you start to believe;
The badger in the bowler hat,
Showed them both to me.

Alan, you amaze me; and more than that I'm saddened by the paucity of comments that celebrate this marvellous poem. A poem only works when it takes us along and leaves us marvelling; and this is what it does for me.

Bravo Maestro!

Your welcome to come along,
If you wish to share with me.
The portals that have opened,
Within the poet tree.

I caught wind from somewhere that there are other portals there and other times as well from which poetry flow.
