Take Four. Print

Poetry Thursday's prompt was supposed to be "bring in the humor". I've succeeded at humor before and usually react to prompts quite well. . . this time I tossed several attempts. It felt kind of like trying to purposely flirt on demand - just doesn't happen - even with my husband, but if I'm in the mood to flirt - there is no stopping me. (Don't read into that! That was not a behind the scenes read between the lines thing.)

There, guess that will have to be the humor part of this week's prompt, though you may see a bit in what came out today - on demand.


Take Four, Print

New toy,
she shouted out
with glee. . .

(OK, so that is cliche)
Try again, please.

New toy,
she gloated
as she walked on air. . .

(Oops, another cliche)
Try again, please.

New toy,
she cried
overcome with joy. . .

(Not another one)
Try again, PLEASE.

New toy,
New toy,
New toy,
New toy,
want to play?

(and she took my heart in hers)
Yes, please!

Very cute-I like seeing the different attempts-that was funny in it's own way. Much better than many I will end up reading I am sure. You accomplished your goal and I did get some laughter and smiles.

Yes, yes, it's all about me and my toys... don't read anything in to that. ;)

Hope you are well Marcia, busy I know, but things are good here.

Clockworkchris - I am excited you saw the "attempts" as exactly what they were. You made me smile! Thank you for commenting today.

Rose Dewy Knickers - I knew the she in the poem was someone with personality. . . GRIN. Thanks for letting me know the toys are yours!
