Friday Fantasy ~ Evening Delight – #poetry

She hides in the shadows
Blending in with the night
A young maiden in waiting
For her evening delight

She plans for her feast
At the edge of the wood
This pretty little lady
Is surely up to no good

She appears to be human
A facade quite believing
One trick of her trade
And her looks are deceiving

She thirsts for the blood
Of any human form
Then, once she is sated
She disappears, in a storm

She’s kept her mates waiting
For their dinner, you see
Tis not one that she feasts for
More hunger, like she

Crickets serenade

Bidding farewell to summer

Their lament in song

A light glows against the night

Outside, but it’s not the moon

A fairy’s wings, perhaps, I see

Tis a sign, all the world is attune

For as the sky falls into a misty pitch

She continues to illuminate, bright

This pixie graces my ink and quill

Always with me, whenever I write

My newest muse, she comforts me

When the thoughts escape my mind

She guides my hand across the page

And once again, the words, I find

Peppered Steak – #poetry #SeptemberWriting

Stop! Right there, it’s a big mistake!
We are definitely not dinner for you
Go find another to make you a steak
Better yet, go eat a vegetable, or two

We’re a happy couple, the bull and I
We like laying around in the grass
But humans, in the blink of an eye
Don’t care about being so crass

Seriously, folks, go try something new
Wake up your taste buds, delight them!
Perhaps some kale or broccoli will do
Go on, go ahead, and just bite them!

Forget about meat, no burgers, no veal
Peppered steak, is not on the menu
Veggies will do, for your very next meal
A baked potato, a salad, and tofu

C’mon, can’t you see how cute we are
Just laying here, together, we plead
We’re too young, to write our memoir
Leave us be, or we’ll surely stampede!
