Poem of the Week-Shaky Memories

Prompting Unfamiliar objects

The Wizard, Toto and

Dorothy are stationary

Within the glass ball.

 Shaking the cones

Makes snow surrounding

The iconic characters

From Wizard of Oz.

Image of

The wicked witch

Peering into her own

Oversized sphere

Sees Dorothy

Scarecrow, Lion and tin man

On the yellow brick road


The witch hisses

“Poppies to make you sleep”

I remember my Dad

Explaining that after

The black and white opening

 Technicolor blasted on the screen

While our small

Black and white television

Wasn’t up to the task.
