She followed the rabbit

right down the hole,

not knowing that Wonderland

was its target goal.


There she met creatures

she found rather strange,

went through some things

where her features did change.


Alice met madness

and a very cool grin;

she grew and she shrunk,

found her head start to spin.


There were dicey moments,

times when she was late;

the Queen and the King,

they decided her fate.


In spite of the strangeness

she made it back home

and perhaps she’d learn to

watch where she did roam.


No, not the case,

for she went back through the glass

for Wonderland was not

somewhere she’d willingly pass.

This was smooth. I haven't read much from you in a while, but this was a very sweet return. They rhyming is flawless and belongs in Alice in Wonderland literature for it's fantasy like feel of rhyme and tone. Great work. - E.E

Alice had a mind of her own.

She did. Definitely a heroine for the misfits among us.

Thanks, 88.

I wonder how she would've returned to Wonderland a third time. A hole, a mirror . . . the bathroom sink?
A deceptively tame summation of her wild adventures. :)
Did you draw the picture of Alice in the cover photo?

No, I didn't draw it, but I did do the photo manipulation and editing. It is several free to use pictures combined.
I think Alice would have to have been crazy not to return there time and time again.
