Carly Reads -- Of Sights and Scents

Of Sights and Scents" A Poem by David Hart
A distinguished pair of spectacles,
selfless and serene,
doze snuggly atop a
Proud bureau of

A placid fireplace
yawns and winks
As giggling embers
tango on tiptoes with
Lilliputian logs,
haughtily cackling
a cacaphonous tune.

Outside a stoic mist
galumphs betwixt gregarious
shrubs and egotistical stars

Dewy eyed and squinting,
windows, aching and arched,
peep out--
Out to the blaring beams
from a crochety moon afar

A pensive pair of spectacles
ruminates on sights
Carefully seen--
Of frugal birds and
courteous walkways
And terraces splendid and keen

Now a scent of myrrh
caresses the room
A pillow of mist
blushing, blows kisses
A muzzy moon
