Ken Allan Dronsfield- Two Poems

The Cellaring

A moldy cold
like a freshly
turned grave.
The smells of
decaying flesh
permeate the
bowels of the
icy basement.
Cobwebs move
in the dead air
a soft whisper
like long Spanish
moss being toyed
with by a gentle
wind upon red
oaks or pecan.
I'm home within
the coolish cellar
humming a sonnet
in my burial dress,
black strap shoes
hair a ghostly mess
a purple lilac purse
and Easter bonnet.

Chasing the Raptor Rev 4

Ghostly shadows soar in exhilarated flight;
forbidden in a life; bequeathed beyond the veil;
Memories burn like a candles flickering light;
Buried within, a soulless raucous fight I'll win.
Rising from the ground; to the clouds I inhale.
Once only strife where a life should've been;
the dream's finally real, I stand ready to begin;
Destiny fulfilled during this sunset at the harbor.
I'll smile for awhile; electric vibes upon my skin.
Now soaring into the mist; Chasing the Raptor.
