trolling for squeals

 

“Grandma, you be the troll!”

Playing with
granddaughters
by swingset; two are
swinging, one is climbing
up ladder to slide.

I take my place
under slide platform
and patiently wait
for little “billy goat”
to walk above me;

“Who’s that tripping over my bridge?”

 


Linking to dVerse poets where Frank hosts a quadrille prompt on word “troll”.

 

late bloomers

Join in Carpe Diem Haiku Kai’s chrysanthemum prompt.

 

dead leaves fall from trees

cornstalks decay in field as

chrysanthemums bloom!

granddaughters delight in mums

colorful caterpillar  🙂

disappointment’s questions

 

cow pushes

hard, long

granddaughters

come along

to witness birth of calf

girls interested in kittens

already few weeks old

realize something wrong

in birth canal – nose, one hoof

show but never second foot

leg bent unnaturally

cannot push out

(naturally)

must pull

stillborn

 


Unfortunately, this was our experience yesterday…linking quadrille to dVerse.
