Beyond the Milky Way

Warm swirling mist two light hearted fools dream
searching the sea for that blue sapphire ring
tis said it holds power as it makes hearts sing
under the darkest of nights  it would gleam

Truedessa and Captain Pat gaze upon the sky
this journey of theirs has reached a feverish pitch
woven fabrics of their souls held with satin stitch
caught in a magical land their hearts softly sigh

Two wild  spirits bonded by the journey of life
to find good  fortune could be a game of luck
tis said one must venture into the deep muck
they have seen enough heartache and strife

Together they sail searching coast to coast
facing adventures and weathering storms
cloud watching as a picture slowly forms
Truedessa whispers " I feel a chill, a ghost"

Captain Pat with his cat on his lap listens
turbulence seems to circulate the cold air
a sense of  real danger, a sign to beware
in the shadows of night two eyes glisten

a soft melody drifts  between blue waves..

 Come to me
  come to me
    let us soar
     beyond the milky way

Out  of the darkness, a man dressed in black
with eyes of red,  he wishes to make a deal
beneath his cloak a light saber  he conceals
Truedessa & Captain Pat take a step back

Captain Pat declares " what is your intention"
Truedessa shivers as a finger points her way
a spaceship hovers , with lights on display
this dark Jedi comes from another dimension

Captain pulls his weapon, as does the Jedi
have no fear we will conquer this foe
stormy winds, delivering a howling blow
what world lives beyond the milky sky


Truedessa and the captain side by side
sword to sword the two will readily fight
but, the dark  Jedi is quick with his light
swift as lightning the saber swings wide

Tossing the spotted cat into the deep sea
Truedessa heaves a cry,  "for that you will pay"
transferring energy their swords now light rays
Captain swears, I'll cut you down like a tree


Suddenly,  the  rolling sea lets out a roar
heaven and earth tremble and shake
a dragon ship appears ,  waves break
seems a ninja has graced their shore

Fiery  bursts from the dragon ships jaw
the spaceship is hit, orange flames galore
Capt'n Pat swings the Jedi falls to the floor
extending over the ship rail, a large claw

Truedessa runs to ship-side, a giant sea lion
 sitting on his furry mane, the spotted cat
she scoops him up, giving the beast a pat
just as the spaceships slip over the horizon

Captain Pat and Truedessa safe and sound
exhausted they gaze up towards the stars
giving thanks to the ninja who plays guitar
together many adventures they have found

posted for dVerse
another light hearted fool adventure
will these two ever make it to bora bay


  1. ha. someone watched the new star wars boys were so excited to see only a year to wait...gotta watch those lightsabres...ha...he threw the cat into the sea...oh my...he is an evil one....smiles...glad you defeated him

    1. haha, Brian, I actually started this a while back and then it just seemed to go all Star knows where my mind will go..
      I am sure your boys will really enjoy the new movie.

  2. I am sure that Captain Pat and Truedessa will continue to triumph over all forces of evil. The Jedi is no match for their cleverness. Smiles.

    1. Hi Mary,

      Your comment made me know Pat and I like to have fun with these adventures.

  3. It is good fun to see your take on Star Wars after so much talk about it on TV and social media. Good to see that you and Captain Pat triumph once again.

    1. Thanks Gabriella,

      I like to write these adventures every once in awhile..a different sort of creative energy flows. I am not sure why I went star just sort of flowed from some other dimension.

  4. Who is Captain Pat? I know Captain Red Shoe and Pirate Blue... but Captain Pat... it doesn't ring a bell. :p

    1. Ahoy, aye I know these mates as well as we have sailed the high seas together searching for some pieces of eight..;P

    2. Haha so you do and so you have!

    3. Are you sure you don't know Captain Pat? He is the master of rhymes on the high sea..One I would gladly sail with as we search for that sapphire ring..

  5. Another epic adventure with Truedessa & Captain Pat & the Cat; sort of like my BLACKTHORNE Western adventure poems; they can go on literally for years. Which Vader was this, Darth, or some other evil one? I got worried about the cat for a time there.

    1. Glenn,

      We do enjoy a long adventure..I always find your western adventure poems fascinating. I think it was some other black Jedi from a planet far far away..smiling..

  6. Loved it, I pray that both of them never part..
    I agree with Brian too...oh my, fighting with swords ....
    Well written...
    Happy that finally they defeated him

    1. Thank you for reading this rather long tale. A little sword
      play had to be done as they sail a pirate's ship.

  7. hahaha star wars wrapped in
    That is sure a win
    The poor cat went over the side
    Glad he got back to their ride
    Otherwise he may hold a grudge
    For that little nudge
    The ninja wannabe even makes a return
    Helping make the baddie feel the burn
    As of the go
    Awaiting the next foe

    1. haha - I had to give it a different spin
      throwing in some Star Wars for a quick win
      you know they say cats have nine lives
      so our spotted friend just had to survive
      The ninja returned with his dragon ship
      as I knew this evil craft he could whip..

  8. Volare`!
    Let's FLY!

    ALOHA from Honolulu

    1. Hi Cloudia,

      Thanks for visiting..where would you like to fly to?

  9. So relieved the cat is okay! Your adventures are always so lively!

    1. Hi Sherry,

      The cat has to live he has so much yet to do :) thanks for reading my long kind of you..

  10. The Ninja and the Dragon. Now why does that sound familiar...?

    1. Haha - I had to bring your dragon-ship into play as I am anxiously awaiting your latest book.."Dragon of the Stars"..thanks for coming to our rescue..

  11. I love these whimsical adventures. Also, I'm just gonna say it, any poem that ends in a lightsaber fight is just automatically awesome by extension.

    1. Thanks, I do enjoy writing these whimsical adventures. I am glad you just had to say it..smiling..
