freckled fun

 

kids have ‘em on their noses
toads have ‘em on their toes-es

bananas get ‘em when yummy ripe
trout wear ‘em with tummy stripe

speckles of sunlight shine upon leaves
treckles of water dripping from eaves

when all’s said and done
freckles are fun!

No changing freckles and no editing this poem 🙂  It’s a quadrille with exactly 44 words for Mish’s prompt at dVerse poets pub tonight.

stereo-typical-saturday

 

kids up too early

cranked TV up

LOUD

running up & down

the stairs with nerf

guns

whooping-it-up

you decide it’s time to

MOM UP

and whip-up breakfast

before natives turn

entire

house upside-down;

sssshhhh, don’t wake

~ UP ~

your father now!

 

 


44-word quadrille for dVerse Poets where De chose the word (you guessed it):  UP!

parents as first teachers

 

Kids deserve the freedom toimages

Learn from real life’s teachable

Moments which are often caught

Not taught in typical schools but 

Observed in (extra)ordinary daily

Pursuits at home with their parents.

 


I remember one of my sons sincerely reciting:  “A,B,C,D,E,F,G…H,I,J,K, Elmo pee” !  Linking this sestet to dVerse  where Lillian holds class 🙂
