A PUZZLING ROMANCE


This is another poem from a prompt, using the words,rubik's cube, demonized and carrot. It turned out pretty good considering those words!!


A PUZZLING ROMANCE

Caitlin with the carrot-colored hair
Went off to visit a witch so fair.
Seeking help, her problem, profound.
The witch’s familiar was a Basset Hound!

“What? No black cat?” Caitlin asked.
“Sadly, my cat was possessed! Aghast,
A corrupt thing, most surely demonized.
So I changed her into this hound so fine.”

“What, my sweet,might I do for you?”
While cooing to her grey morning dove.
“I have looked far and wide,” the lass replied.
“But cannot find my one true love.”

The witch rose to stir her cauldron stew
Dug deep into a magical, tapestry bag
And handed Caitlin a rubic’s cube
Which made the lovelorn girl quite mad!

“I beseech your help and receive a toy?”
“Ah, my beauty, it will bring you joy.
” For when solved, the rubic’s squares,
Will bring the one for whom you care.”

The witchcraft worked on the very first try,
As Caitlin sat alone in the park.
A handsome, dark-eyed man ambled by
And made a quizzical remark.

“Excuse me Miss,” he said and sat
Beside her on the wooden bench.
“You seem to need a hand with that.”
His eyes took in the lovely wench.

Moments passed with no retreat,
As he twisted, turned, then it was done.
The rubic’s cube was now complete
Caitlin sighed, her heartstrings sung.


Far in the distance howled a sound
From a most special Basset Hound.
The witch pulled up her blood-red cowl
And smiled; true love once more, found.


The End

The Beginning

  2. Hi ladies! The words are there - they're just in a very pale colour! If you click and drag just under the image you'll see the words highlighted, but you can always go in & edit the post so it's in a darker colour? ;-)
