DINNER WITH THE TIN MAN

Canada 716

The Tin Man blew out the dinner candles.

The night folded over the crumpled napkins.

The empty wine glasses.

The scrapbook  of sweet moments.

In the kitchen of a thousand dinners.

With their arms filled with love.

They cooked a feast of memories.

In the shadows of the late afternoon.

The Tin Man wiped the dust from the bottle.

And poured them glasses of dreams.

She put her head on his shoulder.

She whispered  the words in his ear.

“Dreams that you dare to dream

Really do come true”.

There’s a scrapbook with a thousand memories.

It closes with a whispered reluctance.

Close your eyes and tap your heels together three times.

It’s yours now.

SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW

Somewhere over the rainbow

way up high.

There’s a land that I heard of

once in a lullaby.

The Tin Man 1

In the Emerald City

a man with an enormous heart

celebrates a special day.

I’m donning  my ruby slippers

clicking my heels three times

and flying off to join the over the rainbow birthday party.

A most magnificent special birthday Tin Man.
