We tried to find inspiration while we helped Mom in the Studio yesterday:
My pickle is green,
this sun-puddle is ... warm
Nah! Think, Mags! Focus! Must ... think! Must ... zzz..."
I thought I had something at one point -
|"Hey, everybody! How about this one?|
This KONG is red,
my left eye is blue ..."
"I like it, but I think you used that one for your very first Valentine, Maggie!"
"Mags? Do you have the red KONG?"
Then I realized Cam was right - I'd written about the KONG before. And, of course, Mom realized I had the red KONG instead of my pickle. Oops. (I can destroy the black super-strong KONGS in minutes - imagine the fun I was about to have with the red one!) Anyway ...
Cam got creative on our walk this morning:
|"My harness is pink,|
yours is green,
you're the cutest crazed river otter
I've ever seen. BOOM!"
I kind of liked it, but Cam said we should keep trying. For the record, I especially like the "BOOM!" part. Lovely touch!
We tried again when we reached the Kansas Ocean; Cam and I each took a line:
|"The Kansas Ocean is frozen|
and so are Mom's hands.
Let's look at Dad
cuz Mom's out of treats."
Not all poetry has to rhyme, you know! I think we have a winner!
Have a great day, everyone!
