Parlor Games

The Sunday Muse

 

I dreamt of knights in shining armor
guarding a castle  across the harbor
there was a king in search of a queen
in a place that he had never seen

I dreamt of pawns caught in a game
moving cautiously, in a land untamed
 battle of wits, but who would win
in the corner, the jester widely grins

I dreamt of a queen in search of a king
in the courtyard below, a troubadour sings
enchantment softly whispers in her ears
drifting in a sea of slumberous tears

I dreamt of a castle somewhere in time
where there is poetic verse and rhyme
 parlor games, wizardry unseen
maneuvering distances in between

I dreamt of a kingdom where light reigns
 heart of a dragon, magic always remains
together in this land, they wear no crowns
proclaiming peace in audible verbs and nouns

  5. I dreamt of a strategy that just might win
    but what move should I choose to begin
    unfortunately if I get the opening wrong
    this game of wits will not last very long
    … I really really like this True. It has both a practical and a fantastical edge — and the rhyming is solid my friend. Well written! 👍🙂

    1. I dreamt sometimes we win or lose
      the path depends on how we choose
      decisions, decisions forward or back
      my heart is racing, in a panic attack

      haha - okay not sure where that came from but, thanks
      for playing along.
