40 Words or less?




He thought he was ready,
to try a real trick,
He's so desparate to
try to fit in.

He leaned just a little,
then lost his grip,
No helmet would save
his scraped chin!


I know, 3 posts in one day!! But I skipped over to http://pensieve.typepad.com/ to see what was happening there, and unlike my usual response ("Hey cool picture, huh.") I went, "Yeah, nice, wait, He thought he was ready..." and a poem came out. So here it is. Thanks Pensieve! For more information, like where the photo came from, click over to her site!


ps. ok, who counted?

This was very good. I'm glad you hopped over to Robin's and decided to join in. Although I didn't do poetry for my entry today, you can't go wrong with it for a submission for a photo prompt or anything like that.

Shoot...three posts, and I'm loving each one! GREAT job with this and it leaves me grinning. I just love it when something "writes itself" like this seemingly did for you. Thank you for taking the plunge this week; maybe now that the wheels are turning (hehe), you'll keep it going!
