Kensi 'n' Tom - Space to dream

:: Bitter sweet ceylon tea - TB

My dream, in a teacup, needs stirring.
I sip and decide it’s too bitter.
I add sugar and realise it’s now too sweet.
I actually liked it more when it was bitter.
Now it’s a bitter sweet ceylon tea, that’s right.
Should I just leave this one to go cold like the last?
What if i drink every last drop and end up hating the pictures with leaves?



:: Wings - KC

What I am going to be today,
I decided in a dream last night.

It was by tripping too close
to the edge of an abyss

and falling down into it,
I discovered I'm winged.


N.B.:

- TB's official residence is Under the Toadstool. I like to imagine I'm his winter house.
- These poems are shared with The Real Toads

  3. Stirring a dream in a teacup is a delightful image. It makes me think of The BFG.

    Great discovery at the end of Wings. A little unexpected, even though I red the title.
