Day 24

Just like mini armadillos
Woodlice is quite cool
When they get really frightened
they roll up in a ball

Its very very tempting
To use them in a sport
An ant like sort of football match
or something with a court

Maybe not a basket ball
cos woodlice do not bounce
You could not dribble them
for they just weigh an ounce

A rose for Louise

Day 23

Dedicated to  Louise Poudel

Sometimes I think I am a rose
I grow among the bricks
I tend to be quite pretty
but surround myself with pricks

The pricks they dont defend me
For aphids go all array
When someone tries to touch me
the pricks send them away

Yes I am quite are stupid
To be a smelly rose
for when you go to sniff me
a prick goes up your nose.

Nature in plain to see

day 22
People sometimes say to me
I am lucky to live in the countryside
because nature is plain to see
but I say to them nature is everywhere

Day 21

Our prompt for today (optional, as always) is an old favourite the Erasure This involves taking a pre-existing text and blacking out or erasing words, while leaving the placement of the remaining words intact. Erasure

Here is my take on this. Using one of my own poems taken from this site for the task.

My Muse

Day 20

My Muse is on strike
She has a rare disorder
The only thing she said to me was


day 19

Anger comes in many ways
fuelling calm with dread
Today I felt quite angry
when a gate fell on my head.
And that is about as much you will get from me today because i am suffering from

Day 18
I once met Elvis in a garden centre over near the sheds
Are you lonesome tonight I said
He looked at me, said he was pissed
I Forgot to remember to forget the shopping list
I left it at Heartbreak Hotel
while I was crying in the Chapel
I thought it was stuffed down my blue suede shoes
now I am feeling moody blue.
I am all shock up on a mystery train
He smiled at me. I’ve lost my brain.
That’s all right, I grabbed his arm
I may well be your good luck charm
Im a hard headed women, so don’t be pissed
I mean who really needs a shopping list

We wandered down near jailhouse rocks
then passed the wooden heart planting boxes
over by the hound dog food.
I’ll get me coat
