I'm estimating this retro poetry to be from around third or fourth grade. Today's excerpt comes from my limited-edition, self-published (and self-crafted) book, Sea Poems.
Try not to be blown away by my cover art...
I'll set the stage for this work of pure poetic genius by sharing the illustration first. A few points of note:
- That is not a magic carpet. It's a beach towel.
- The snorkeler is wearing partially-drawn scuba equipment. I assure you this isn't a technical oversight but rather a philosophical statement about how doing things halfway will result in your demise. (Case in point: this man's snorkel did not extend beyond the water, and his only back-up plan was his incomplete scuba gear. I'm sorry to say he didn't make it.)
- Depth perception has never been my thing.
And now, the poem you've all been waiting for. This gem speaks for itself:
I'll leave you to wipe away the single tear that's rolling down your cheek.
Happy Monday, everyone! Is it Z yet?

I'm also participating in the A-Z Challenge and my theme focuses on books and the titles of them, which will begin with the letter of the day!
Thanks for stopping by, Michelle! Your blog is awesome.ReplyDelete
