Did You?

questions from Winslow, Arizona and the song by Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey “Take It Easy”

  
Did you ever 

stand on the corner

in Winslow, Arizona?

Did you ever

have seven women

on your mind?

Did you ever

let your wheels

drive you crazy?

Did you ever

try to understand

and take a stand?

Did you ever 

have a world of trouble

on your mind?

Did you ever

win or did you 

lose?

Did you ever

let yourself be saved

and take it easy?

dVerse prompt to write a poem of questions

Did You?

Alchemy in the Garden

  
Transformed from a small wrinkled seed set in soil at springtime 

I hold the beets by their rat tails after yanking them out of the bed

They do not squeak or squeal as I hose them off for my dinner pot

Filled with docility and content to roast in the oven at a high degree

Except the one that got away by rolling downhill as I lost my grip

Then poof by magic it sprouted legs with blood red fur it ran

It ran to the woods without looking back and I never saw it again
