Halloween Scene

Don't be surprised
if you happen to see
a pirate, a ghoul,
a groovy hippie.

Tonight's the night
to see and be seen.
Have your treats ready,
it's Halloween!

Be sure to visit Linda at Teacher Dance - she has many Poetry Friday treats to share.
(and none will cause tooth decay!)

Tea Spree

A quick sip
of every brew
steeps my need
to visit the loo.



This is my contribution to David Harrison's WOM challenge to use the word: SPREE. Have you written your "spree" poem yet? Time is running out!

Happy Count Your Buttons Day!

10 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Under a towering green needle pine
Leaving me with just 9

9 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Landing near the white garden gate
Leaving me with just 8

8 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Straight up to blue high heaven
Leaving me with just 7

7 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Bouncing off a stack of red bricks
Leaving me with just 6

6 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Skimming across a golden bee hive
Leaving me with just 5

5 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Skittering across the brown tile floor
Leaving me with just 4

4 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Plunking into my hot black tea
Leaving me with just 3

3 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Right into the ivory loo – ew!
Leaving me with just 2

2 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Up toward the bright yellow sun
Leaving me with just 1

1 button left on my new coat
I button it tight at my throat
Now I’m a Super-hero guy
Time to watch ME fly!
