The King and I

Life isn’t lived in black and white where
kings submit to love instead of rule
but neither is love all fantasy.

Dare to dream.

Come fly with me
beneath a night of stars
where nothing lies beyond
and all is gone behind
in passing passages.

Caprice in mood and motion
I’ll ask:
‘Shall we?’


take your hand and dance you
to the music of
‘getting to know you’ time.

  1. One of my favorite movies and how you have interpreted some of these words to convey a message…simply awesome. Nicely written!

    1. ‘Shall we?’ I remember that! He proceeded with regal dance steps, with hands above his head and stomping around the palace hall! I remember that! Great Mag!


  2. As long as no crashing is involved I guess the cat will fly with you, throw in a little grey and black and white becomes blue.

  3. Just woke up a minute ago … for some strange reason … found your post and a piece of your very soul … thank you … Love, cat.
