Well, What Do You See? (poem)

I will be taking part in OctPoWriMo – October Poetry Writing Month – aiming to write and publish a poem every day this month. In my usual way, I only found out about this a couple of days ago, and have zero poems stockpiled… I like a challenge! Anyone can join in – you can sign up here http://www.octpowrimo.com/2015/10/octpowrimo-begins.html

Today’s prompt was “clouds”…

Chugging Steam Trains
Lickable Lollies
Oodles of noodles
Unidentified Flying Objects… flying
Dragon’s Breath
Scampering Sheep, fleeing the dragon!

Well, what do you see?

    1. Thanks Steph – it’s my first October one, although I did an A to Z themed one in April. Am looking forward to the challenge, and meeting new people who are similarly afflicted by the need to poetise! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Marvelous, marvelous, Al!! I had to laugh at your note that you didn’t have poems “stockpiled”–last night I was thinking the same thing, and grateful for the do-able prompt!

  2. This was delightfully whimsical – loved it!

    And yeah, let’s just jump in and aim for the skies – floating and dream in the clouds – watch as the thunder rolls by – struck by lightning inspiration; in other words … I’ve never done a poetry challenge – during April I too, was doing A-Z as opposed to the April poetry one by NaNo – hmmm …. or is that NaPo… yeah, that’s it …. anyhow …. good luck and thanks for stopping and “liking” – appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Pat – you’re welcome! I combined the poem a day challenge with the A to Z blog challenge on a whim… Some of the poems turned out “alright”, and got to meet lots of people, so it was all good. Going to try more of the poetry prompts this time too, life permitting ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I seem to see only Disney characters.. like Mickey Mouse and Porky Pig in the image of clouds you have shared ๐Ÿ˜›
