Summer Fun… (Writer’s Digest Poem A Day Challenge)

image

For today’s prompt, write a water poem. Life depends upon water, so there are any number of ways to write this prompt.

Little feet traipsing
Upon the soggy green
Blades of grass between their toes
Muddy earthworms, unseen
Bouncy, pouncy, springing forth
In the summer heat
Water oscillating
From garden hose stream
Rainbows created by
Suns’s strong beams
Laughter unrestrained
Children’s spirits set agleam

A New Superhero…

A princess superhero,
Tierra, pink cape and all.
She’s out to save the world
By turning bad guys into frogs!

My soon to be seven year old niece made a comment about turning a bad guy into a frog. I thought it was cute and figured it would be a cool superhero!

 

 

Vivian’s Monkaroo…

Vivian has a monkaroo
That she calls banana.
Banana who?
You say.
Banana monkaroo!

He’s green like a lime
And white like cotton
And he eats orange flavored grass.

He hangs by his tail,
And jumps on one leg.
When I see him I can’t help but laugh.

He carries Legos in his pouch,
Wears red high tops on his feet.
He’s a silly monkaroo for sure,
But one you’d want to meet!
