Destiny, my fate, my fortune ~~ A Flash 55 Poem for you


Good Fortune came my way
Courted her, dined her well
She smiled on me, cash cow

Bright teeth, shining pearls
Little did I know then
Those teeth inside her smile

Better to bite my butt
Kick me hard, I did fall
Fickle woman, my Fate

Promised the Moon I was
selenolatry me,

Lost my all
_ _ _

Today I am linked with Kerry O'Conner at Flash 55 Plus,

After reading or listening to Carl Orff' O Fortunata, we are to compose a poem of exactly fifty-five words telling what came to mind. I have 55 words including my title.

Carl's composure, translated into English, may be seen here:

Selenolatry:  Moon lover

What an excellent poem, Jim. Never trust the fickle nature of fate, indeed.

Fate is sometime very cruel. Good write.

Thanks for visiting.

Ah. Fate has a way of kicking when one is down particularly! Or when one is up! You've captured that here. (I am glad that I think this poem is largely fictional.) k.

Nicely said. (I'm a selenolatrist myself! ;) But so far, so good.)
