WORLDS WITHIN WORLDS: Numbered Shot List

SHOT #1

Every cranny, nook and nub with wondering eyes abuzz with being

SHOT #2

Where once was but a molehole, gapes a portal, tunnels teasing

SHOT #3

Each tree I see is home to imps or nymphs, hobbits or hermits

SHOT #4

Why there are homes for gnomes and forts for fairies - yes indeed!

SHOT #5

Cubby holes and hiding huts in weeping willow dens

SHOT #6

I tiptoe past the tower where the princess sure is hidden

SHOT #7

While the firth it froths and fizzes, tendrils stretching to the shore

In its depths swim secret selkies, kelpies, mermen, maids and more

SHOT #8

Instead the inky black unveils a sea of twinkling lights

SHOT #9

That muses mingle with the mosses, grasses, ferns and bark

==

NOTES: Feel free to refer to the poem for other allusions. Possible visuals could include tight close-ups of trees, grass, leaves, etc.

"Kiss"

Text by HeavyPetal

A kiss in a crowd.

We whispered it loud.

Fingers linked lightly -

We’re shy, but we’re proud.

When a bird arrives in the Hereafter,  
It sings a song so sweet,   
That Death takes a break to listen.

Where Bad Ideas Go

Text by Metaphorest

==

I’m all out of good ideas

Only bad ideas badger me

Shame-filled

Begging to be put down


Instead I file them

Into folders called ‘Unfinished’

Where they fester

Rotten with self-loathing

Yet still hoping

One day to be plucked

Out of their turgid purgatory

And nurtured till they’re worthy


Now and then,

I hear one whimper

Like a plucky runt

In a pet shop window

‘I’m not all bad, let me prove it’


Heartstrings-tugged

I take a second look

And sometimes find

That this one wasn’t

Such a bad idea

After all
