High wire

On a thin bare wire
Stepping ever so gracfully
Balance is the rule


Trapeze

Flying without wings
Dance a ballet in the air
Timing perfection


Clowns

His grease paint hids all
Every night he makes us laugh
We don't se his tears

Riders

Elephants and horses
Parade with riders on their backs
All dressed in glitter


Food

Forget your waist
Just eat it with a diet coke
Heart burn is a myth


Cages

The bars depress me
Fat lazy lions and tigers
Their roars sound tame


Human cannon ball

Big silver cannon
Slowly sliding down the bore
Streak in a smoke puff

Dream

When I was a child
I yearned to join the circus troupe
I would be a clown

Awww thanks Bob!!
Challenge met poet sir!
When I was a kid I wanted to be a flyer on the trapeze...
I wished I had wings, and could fly.  
My father made my sister and I one,
four feet off the ground...cement ground that is...
strange family...LOL.
*What!  No magicians in your circus? *
Thanks again...and HUGS!

~Somewhere in my heart I'm always
dancing with you in the summer rain~

(smiles) Awwwwwww, this is sooooo lovely, sweet friend, I think when we are all young we always wonder what it is like to fly, and it is always sooooooo beautiful of a  feeling to see the circus and watch the next best thing! (sigh) This is wonderful, sweet friend, I love it, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Robert, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton
