Untether imagination’s secret bog
ease the mind into a pleasant fog
escaping within eyes at half-mast
toward stories from childhood past.
Travel upon the bricks of yellow
laughing with a lion so mellow
soar with Pan and battle Hook
if it gets too scary close the book.
No need to drag the friends along
don’t worry if you forgot the song.
When you encounter mighty Kong
rabbit will always share his bong.
And if perchance you meet a cat
who’s head’s adorned with many hats
he may offer green eggs and spam
check the spyware for Sam I am.
Should you see a blue giraffe
it’s just forgotten how to laugh.
Give to him a hug that’s mellow
I’m sure he will turn back to yellow.
On those days when feeling old
ride a rainbow to the pot of gold
and whether you’re a boy or girl
go with Sparrow to sail the Pearl.
Gobble chocolate with a boy named Willy
although the thought of it might feel silly.
Remember why these stories fill your head
to chase away those thoughts you dread.

About the Book:
Tick tock says the magic clock
In a language that’s part of the soul
Get in line for the gate
You don’t want to be late
For your trip down the rabbit hole…
“Down the Rabbit Hole” is a collective work of writings from poets who like you, live their lives inundated with the challenges and demands of everyday life. They have unlocked the door to boundaries we all make for ourselves and turned those boundaries into fantastic, beautiful worlds to both help ease the boredom and perhaps spark the imagination.
Lyne Beringer, Author of “Alaskan Vogue – Poetry From the Land of Ice and Shadows”
