I Wish I Was An Octopus

I wish I was an octopus I’d swim around and make a fuss and with my legs all spread askew I’d grab some fish and make fish stew. Then I’d go swim into a cave and go deep down, not be afraid I’d poke and tickle a catfish and open clams, do what I wish. And when a sea storm came along I’d stick like glue and be so strong sometimes I’d need to hide away from bigger fish who hunt and prey. If I am out or nearly caught I’d squirt and make an inky blot how fun to be so mischievous I wish I was an octopus! Written on 5/4/2018

Hi Laura, You have penned such a well written write for the contest theme. "Adventures of the day and life of an octopus" came to my mind as I was reading this piece. Well done. Congratulations on placement in the contest:-) Alexis

Good morning Laura. There are days when I wish I was an octopus too. One with many legs and a slimy body. I have enjoyed your light hearted poetry today, Thanks .

Yes I’m an Octopus in Viv’s contest too, Laura - there is something fabulously, freakishly alluring about them! Maybe we can be octobuddies - your octopus sounds fun! (Let’s not high five though - it would be complicated!)

Thank you, Jan! I liked your sweet poem about a kitty cat, as well! It’s fun to write light poetry...it gets too serious around here sometimes!
