Riddles

Chimera Poetry

Cross the bridge and answer the riddle
choose wise over guile
for the lead casket will triumph while others roast
and the singing of your name down the ages
will most likely end with
“and then he died…..”
there is no mercy in the dragons heart
nor in Macbeth’s three
and even the jade knight has been misled
misdirected
trusting in the old ways and old paths can lead you into the most harrowing curse of all
to live in interesting times
as the sphinx speaks in portents
and the grail remains unfilled
your road stretches endlessly behind
and the mountains standing sentinel across the horizon
are never any closer

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
