Hmmm, I'd like a poem that sounds like a majik spell. Something to use when meditating and trying to Astral Project..

In the suppine position
release the mind's condition
trace your outline
feel yourself go numb
when your mind wanders
realign with your etheric body
imagine your center
a sphere rising and falling
inside and outside your shell
you are seeing
you are floating

There is a wilderness within the mind
Where some get lost, others never go
It remains uncharted, unexplored
Except by pioneers of the spirit
It is they who walk in the whisp of dreams
They who pull themselves around their soul
And pass through laws and limits
To find a place where truth resides

There is a secret within the mind
It is hidden where no thought has entered
It tells of magic, illusion and hope
As if reality was human folly
Suspend the rules that govern life
Deny the mandates of the tyrant time
Walk within the realm of self
And learn to know all that is unknown

Ohhhhhh, what a cool challenge!
Thank's for posting it..
I made the time traveller a her, sorry, to late to edit it. need to log off for a few hours..

Fulfill her dreams

Not knowing if her life is a paradox,
She wanders back in the streets of old.
Seeking that one passing stranger,
His name unknown and untold.

Her life you see is haunted by dreams,
of a child who she holds dear to her heart.
as-yet unborn this phantom child begs to live
and shows to his mother the love he will give.

"My father", say's child, with photo in hand,
a handsome young man standing outside the strand.
with sideburns and waist-coat of centuries gone,
"Find him", say child,  "I want to be born"

And so she wanders the dark streets of the 18th century,
But was born of the bright lights of the 21st century,
She's seeking a stranger to fulfill her needs,
and seeking a partner to fulfill her dreams.

That was really good. LOVE IT!

OK next challenge and hope there is more than one taker but if only one then requesting The Professor.

Challenge: A person falls in love with Anne Frank after reading her diary, wishing to save her, or at least comfort, the ghost of Anne Frank is summoned. The person then loses interest so the ghost of Anne Frank is painfully hurt at her abandonment and haunts the person.

Challenge enough? Feel free to tinker with, remove, or add some elements but try to keep it similar if possible.

Before my eyes
she slipped.
I reached to grasp her
but she fell
and shattered.

All I have
left to hold
is tattered.

Around the globe I fly.
Faster, faster, faster.

The wind beats my brow.
An asteroid slaps my face.
All I hear - is my flapping cape,
until I see her.

I have slowed my pace.
I am still, in that place
where the hand is on the nine.

She will not escape
this Time.

I received a call today.
Someone found your diary.
I had tried to burn it.
I had tried to walk away.

I cannot like Superman
come to find you Lois Lane,
among the heaps
where you've been slain.

Cast your silhouette
on someone else's door.
Take away your pain,
it's welcome here no more.

But if you must persist,
come to me with solid kiss.
If we could touch for real
perhaps you'd be restored.

I decided to be creative and twist your request since it can mean both a cat who feels guilty about "attacking and trying to eat it" and a cat who is "feeling guilty about attacking" and "trying to eat it" so I will write about the cat feeling guilty as one action and trying to eat it as another action.

Staring into trees

eyes mesmerize
a possible romance
between a black cat
whose eyes hypnotize
and a chicken safe
in her tree roost

eyes captivate
a chicken falls
the cat pounces
whose eyes celebrate
life slips easily away
there was hardly a chance
to even say good-bye

and in those eyes
I saw a story
the time you saw the fire
and houses burning down

the child the next day
who played around the tree
running in circles
life continues

oh chicken it was you
who decided to trade
the love of this land
for your ability to fly

sorry if the cat didn't sound guilty enough but he truly was

Cool.
This was a hard one.. Thanks for the Challenge!!

I've kept to your words this time.. LOL.

Anns Diary..

Such sorrow felt in her long years of hiding,
her diary spoke wisdom of conflicts colliding.
With pen and ink she wrote with time biding,
of life and of love and words born of longing.

Such was my love for her words that I failed to see,
Ann's sprit was poured into her diary.
No death to her words that live on written page,
still sweet sixteen for death knows no age.

Each time I read of her life and her loss,
I unwittingly summon her ghost.
She shares with me the secrets of human nature,
and things that mattered the most.

But when I closed her book at last, on final word she spoke.
Her ghost refused to leave my heart, so now I must denote,
and cast her ghostly spirit from my dreams that roam,
abandon her haunting words from my stately home.

So deep Ann's words from drowning ink,
I still tremble when I look.
Her life is gone but soul remains,
A spirit trapped in checkered book.

The poem is from a cat's perspective.
Not one of my cats. My cat's would *crunch crunch crunch* and leave feathers all over the kitchen floor.

Fluttering Wings.

Oh play sweet thing, of fluttering wing.
Oh let me play with you.
Come dance with me, my we sweat pea.
Let us doe-sea-do.

Let's chase and throw, and pounce and go,
round in circles and up in their air!
Such fun, sweet thing, of fluttering wing,
your beauty holds such flair.

What's this I say, you can no longer play?
why shiver and cower so?
My word sweet thing, of fluttering wing,
Please fly again once more.

Oh dear, no breath, you've come to death!
Oh darn my love of play!
One breath, sweet thing and flutter away,
we'll meet another day.

Forgotten Homes.

Earth-world, forgotten home,
Where eons ago we left to roam.
Through-wormholes in space-time,
And perpetual night-time,
with mysteries on the mind,
no challengers worthy to find.
Home-world, our histories,
In eons past our mysteries,
Oh to return to that source,
we must change our course!
And return to that Womb,
where there we will resume,
to discover old tomes,
in our long forgotten homes.
