Graceland

 
Charron's chatter is your source for funny prose.
Let’s sit in black velvet, Elvis,

under  a jawbreaker moon.

Expect a firmament

dripping sugar crystal
 

clear and blue floss

just at sundown, streaking

stadium-sized meteors

that tat wholes

—out of holes

shaping ephemeral

auroras into

(Western Nights)

Saltwater taffy our jammed Tootsies

Popped into shore-breaking

—with laughter

an unguarded medicine,

rolling & cresting

whatever ails you

if anything does

ease it for you.

Let’s do that…

you & me

sometime.

About Charron's Chatter

The act of transcribing thoughts is as compulsive as any bad habit. I chain smoke words, overeat concept, and drink to forget I’ve gambled my secrets, driven by the possibility of unknown connection. © Karen Robiscoe 2012

    • Is it fun? The trick to writing such nonsense is to really live through it in your mind…then toss a couple wordplays in…:) HeHE!! Thank you for coming…I knew you would like the atmosphere here…:)

    • i so dig it …………………
      it’s like a little place in the universe that speaks of magic and beauty all the time xo :) xx

    • speaking of magic…I am visiting your magical site, and I can feel your positivity and energy just bouncing out of the screen!!

      I am thinking you are on your way–there is just a feeling–a right time for things, and this is yours…:)

    • you’re beautiful you know that ……..:)

    • I know, right? Me too, you too. We get it! There is enough good stuff for us all out there…:) And as all the great spiritual advisors said at one time or another–or maybe just Carlos Castaneda ;)–Intent is everything. The intent behind one’s actions is everything–and bears examination…:)

      That said, please don’t read today’s verse! I am posting a saddish poem, today, and do not want to bum you out!

    • Of course there is Enough xxx i so love Castaneda ……..
      Haven’t read him since i was a teen – Thanks – Inspired again to read Him :)
      We all come from the same Place ……
      The Universe –
      some of us have different planets
      or stars we like to hang out on …………..lol
      But Ultimately we are all the same
      and that is so truly beautiful xxxxx C

    • we truly are star people–being of that same origin as the universe (or multiverse)…makes you wonder what the other planes have in store…;)

  5. You can always makes us smile or even a laugh.
