Midsummer Madness – Lynn White

Written in response to our prompt ‘obscure illusions’. We will be sharing a piece by someone in our community each day this week in the lead up to our Issue II announcement next week.


Midsummer Madness by Lynn White

I saw a rabbit in the clouds

it was eating something,

but what was it?

Didn’t look like a carrot,

more like an ice cream cone,

well it was a hot day.

Perhaps it was no rabbit

but a hare with a touch of

midsummer madness.

Later it re arranged itself

and became a cat,

quite definitely cat,

a Cheshire Cat

no doubt about it

hoping to join Hare and Alice

at the tea party.

And who knows,

if the White Rabbit is on time

maybe he’ll bring ice cream for all.

Anything can happen

on a midsummer

afternoon.
