my galoshes are sloshed.
i’m gonna need a bum
to keep my willy-nilly birthday
suit(e) saved unscathed
from all this mud
the sun’s come out again.
i miss the stuck-struck spill
of my jelly-belly wellies filling
with rhymin’ writhin’ writin’
This word wants to be a thousand poems. Come play with me at dVerse.
Nice sound: “mud
Your sense of rhyme is always inspiring, Frank!
This is really good; and fun.
Dynamic De! onomatopoeic or what! discomfort in the nether regions – and bum
So much fun, De! I love the bum-bershoot. 🙂
My younger daughter and I were just talking about how when she was little, I’d take her for walks where she’d jump and splash in the puddles. She said, the oil puddles were rainbows.
Muddled muck..boots…Wellies..clever girl!
The musical rhythm in your piece is wonderful!
Oh my….smiling I am! It reminds me of the Wednesdays I would pick up my two grandkids when they were very young, from their preschool. The school believed children should play outside, no matter the weather. So there I’d be, in the rain….taking my two young grandkids to the back end of the hatchback car, sitting them up on the car…pulling off muddy boots…stripping down from their rain pants and somehow, they even had mud in their underwear!!!! There was a HUGE mud puddle the kids loved to stomp in! Sigh…..I learned to bring wet washcloths and towels to wash off their faces for the ride home. They were happy as clams! 🙂 Thanks for the memories!
LOVE this, Lill! 🙂
This is a fun form. Playful.
Thank you all, so much.
You are so dang adorable.
“to keep my willy-nilly birthday
You made me remember certain joys from my childhood – but I won’t be running naked in the rain,
This one just giggles and smiles, De! One to keep for my grandson, when he’s old enough!
Luv this for the fun in your word play
I enjoyed the light-heartedness of this one, De! 💜
