“Fun in the Fun House”
Original Contemplative Poetry
dVersePoets Poetics Fun Fair Prompt -
hosted by Claudia Schoenfeld
i thought about if i’d write a descriptive click-click-click-rush! of my first roller coaster ride, or even of my son, screaming on take off on his first roller coaster ride cause the name of it was The Great American Scream Machine – hey, it was the name of ride, so do it!
but other than throwing up after being spun like a texas tornado on a child’s saucer cup ride, my first ride into a haunted house track-ride, wryly called the Fun House, has to be the one i remember most
join claudia over at dVersePoets if you can; she says,
“Take us on a bumper car ride with you or on a metaphorical merry-go-round or tell us about that roller coaster ride that almost made you lose your mind…make it funny, thoughtful, wild, reflective… wide open space….”
memory rides can be kind of surprising what they dredge up in me
i hope you’ll stop by the Pub at dVersePoets and take a sip into your own fun past
Fun in the Fun House
I remember screaming as my cousin
Several years older
Held me close, her hand easily covering my eyes.
I remember being embarrassed when our cart
Did it’s exit, but not enough to care.
A skeleton and a gnarled face on a glow stick
Had taken turns screeching at us from
The muggy dark.
Yes, she had laughed at the spooky turns
Inside the fun house
But it wasn’t til years later
At family gatherings
It’d been fun.
Fun is found
in the House of Time.
