Contrivance – One Word Photo Challenge


In chrome it gleams; at the bottom of pots, it waits.
In my fridge it chills, though it still beckons.
More insistent than dark chocolate, it baits
me with visions of green valleys; dead-on
in my sights, an Enchanted Forest spreads.
Dragons ride the thermals and cats foretell,
offering beach blanket fliers not bread,
but bowls of soup to sup upon while spell
Cat winds with words both old and kind of times
when heroes rode, a Child of Magic strode
and sword made whole when right healed the old crime
which drove a line of men onto shame’s road.
Reflected in glass on my appliance,
is the surreal world of my contrivance

    1. I had to strain my brain for this one. Then someone made a comment on Takeoff and that lead to this poem. I see Shayari everywhere and in everyone anyway. So why not my toaster? Maybe this gave you food for thought? 😉
