when i was little,wp-1594253600335

we would chew

penny gum balls,

colorful as turmeric,

and imagine spiced

potpourri dreams in

passing clouds; do you

see a lazy lizard? yes, it

wears old leather boots

and rides a sea serpent!


Linking to Linda’s paint chip poetry on “when i was little” theme!

    Root beer hard candy barrels purchased from the peddler that would stop at our house in the country. And it is still fun to look at the cloud shapes and let ones imagination have free rein. I saw a tyrannosaurus rex just last week!
