gold .osi

' life '

they all come in gold
foxes and fishes
birds and the flowers ,
i live in a children's story ,
a blonde priestess of hope
hands me the morning ,
crooked magicians play
tricks in a shadowplay ,
toy soldiers like gi joe
keep track with the sun
buddies like pinocchio
letting lose the fun ,
time enters
on a trojan horse ,
yellowing me with age ,
i keep growing old
but never grow up ..

[ Ed : Line 1 - scattering the gold ]


  1. LOVE that!!! What a wonderful idea to live in a children's story! And I agree...I am growing older but never growing up! Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  2. really beautiful ....
    I loved the last lines ..I keep growing old but never grow true

  3. I love this. There is a lot to be said for staying young in heart and mind.

  4. I especially like the beginning of this poem about the fishes and birds, and living in a children's story, and the blond priestess of hope handing you the morning. Can you get her to pass it this way next?
