OctPo Day 16 – Once Upon a Time

image from Google


Once upon a roller coaster
don’t get off until it stops.


Once upon a downhill path
take your feet from the pedals
and enjoy the ride.


Once upon a good idea
grab it while it’s there.
Write it down before it goes
or your brain will forget it.


Once upon your heart’s desire
sweeten him with poetry.
tend him, love him,
live happily ever after.
