Written By:  D. Collins 8/23/19

We go to see the animals, 
the zebra and the bear.
The lion, the tiger, 
and sometimes the small hair.
No, not the one… on top of my head. 
The one that is soft and has very big, fat feet.

Unwanted Bird

Green… feathers on white. 
Yellow butterflies, everyone sees them. 
I can not explain what happened. 

He hit me. 
Not once, but repeatedly.

Premium Member Classy Stuff
Matched clothes are classy when topped with a hat and gloves.
I prefer them to contrast however. 
Red dress, navy accessories. Orange dress, blue accessories.
I am particular about them 
which is silly since I never wear a dress.

Loving your children is...Read More

There is a gopher hiding in the gooseberry bushes,
Kaie, the town gossip told me.
I looked hard.
Got prickled by the bush’s thorns too.
Got bloody.

He was wearing a Stetson with a paisley hat band.

Kung Fu Kong
Sharp as a whip, and not really drunk,
the drunken monk
has the sober monkey on his back.
A cylinder of mighty words
chained to a cylinder of craft and trickery,
behold the clever nunchucks,
I don’t follow the trickery, perhaps you do,
the blank look on...Read More

It's a New Circus
A funny thing happened under the big top
Heard a great ruckus and decided to stop
Stuck in my head and a commotion rages
I saw animals free and people in cages

The hippos were on the flying trapeze
And the mini circus had lost...Read More

Premium Member Create What Will Become A Teensy Bit of Me
It began as an idea.
Hopped up on my dendrite highway.
Zoomed through my wide-open interstate and took me on a ride.
I was holding on as hard as I could.
A smile turned into a flat out worldwide laugh.
Idea one turned herself...Read More

I woke up with an enormously gassy gorilla sitting on my head.
Smelly flatulence is most probably what so quickly got me out of bed.
The most amazing part of the crazy story, is how he got through

Playing poem-making today. Twisting my brains into position. 
They are resisting in no way, realizing grown up Caren is in charge here.

Pleased with myself.

Wherein a mole used to hide
Why does your heart fall all apart

Does she miss me,...Read More

Causing loads of premature bragging from delighted grand-animals.
