Stony River, delivers a challenge once a week-we are to write a story about a picture she posts in 140 characters or less (including punctuation and spacing)and then link up back at her site.
I loved this week's picture, and let my mind wander about it for a while before trying to formulate my entry. For some reason the poetry flowed much easier than the prose, although I'm pretty happy with both (I can't wait to hear what you think.) Here is the picture:
The fairy floated down, resting her staff inside the little boy's shoe-one silver coin for one small tooth, and she would be on her way. (135 characters)
And here is my poem
Pixie dust, fairy wings,
Knights, castles, noble kings,
Pretty pink polish,
And plastic rings,
My little girl's world,
Is my everything. (138 characters)
I am looking back tonight, so this is probably why the poem came much more easily. My little girl is not so little anymore-she turns 12 next week, but I still remember those early days like they were yesterday. Sigh... I see the link isn't up yet, so I will come by your blogs tomorrow!
