chose the very odd illustration!


'Mr Peculiar! You're a square!
Part of you just isn't there!

'It's a rectangle if you please;
It always happens when I sneeze!
And how can you see it? You've got no eyes!'

'You're very quick with your replies!
My eyes are on the other side.
Both of them are open wide.
I like to be a bit informal,
But, unlike you I am quite normal.'

'Mr Odd! Don't be so rude!
You'll put me in a nasty mood.

Hey! Look at that person looking at us!
If I looked like that I'd make a fuss.'


Little girl finds a treasure.
Wet sand, a worm, some seaweed, or some junk!
Who cares! It is the centre of her world.

I loved them both, but I thought Engrossed was just lovely.

Great poetry to go with the SY picture - well played. :)

This prompt is definitely drawing out the fun, and your take has it in bags. Very enjoyable.

I love your SY poem! We all note the peculiarities of others, don't we? Thanks for the laugh.

The little girl playing in the sand poem is just too sweet.

It may not be micro, but it is witty and clever!

I love your story in rhyme! It fits the image so well! Bravo!!

Funny with a bit of a moral - in poetry no less. Who could ask for anything more?
