The Road of Curiouser and Curiouser
“I guess when you turn off the main road, you have to be prepared to see some funny houses.” ~Stephen King
I once turned left instead of right
and saw a really oddball sight:
the road I turned on suddenly
revealed a funny house and tree.
Who could have guessed? This house’s hue
was lemon, pink, cornflower blue.
It had a pinwheel balcony.
It was a funny house and tree.
The tree grew tea cups from each limb,
just like a scene from Brothers Grimm
or Carroll’s Alice. Could that be?
Uh huh. A funny house and tree.
I made a left instead of right
and saw a funny house and tree...
Notes: In continuing with my January poetic form theme of Kyrielle Sonnet, here's yet another one. Poets United Thursday Think Tank provided the prompt of 'The Road' today. After I saw the Stephen King quote, I knew what road I would have to take to get to this poem.
