Kingdom Of Passions

Far away in a land
where only fingers,
and mouses
can transport,
lies a
kingdom of passions.

The largest,
brightest place
one could ever imagine,
where etchings
on the walls
are created by
the royal King,
Queen, Princes,
and Princesses
of the kingdom.

Let me introduce
you to Ron,
our crowned King.
Seated beside
his majesty
is the crowned
Queen Nan.
They tend
to all the aches,
and pains
of all that abide
within the
kingdom of passions.

Amongst
the acres of land
in this large,
bright place
there march
many knights
in shinning armor.
Their words
be their swords
as they tear
juice from your eyes,
or as they gently
caress a smile
to your face.
Some use their swords
to shave you
to the ground
in hilarious laughter.

Welcome
to the kingdom of passions
where minds come together
to share their inner most thoughts,
dreams, and humor.
Where everyone becomes enlightened
through the talents of others.

It's just a game of chess
and I am but a pawn.
It's nothing more or less --
our words a drawbridge drawn
to bring the castle Truth
and echoes of our mind.
A Passions game of chess,
with stanzas, verse, and rhyme.

Great poem! But does this mean we all have to curtsey to Ron and Nan? I better start practicing so I don't fall on my ..face.

Seriously, I loved the line about everyone being enlightened through the talents of the others...that is certainly true!

A regal court's poetic match
White's Bishop Balladeer,
deVine, DreamEvil's foe to catch
Ne'er Rook Green Polar Bear -
Thence Isabelle and Alicat
O'ersee the game a-Skye
As fearless pawns move en passant
In Peri-lous advance on by...

This pawn comes passing by with verse,
one small square at a time.
Then wayout rook and dr'evil knight
attack with poems sublime.
Black knight asserts advancing threat,
White bishop Tim eschews
the cheque from angled distance, yet
the Sunshine rook ensues.
This Passion chess is quizzical,
amusing, yet intense.
Next move for pawn, a physical
PERI-meter offense.

Medieval knights we have, for sure,
And damsels in distress
While lords and dukes and duchesses
Parade in royal dress.

So bring your friends and visit us
Partake of what we've got.
Enjoy our humble offerings and
We hope you comealot.
