Poetry Friday


                               
A grassy canal 
the crocodile's domicile
eyes glaring at me.




Thanks for reading. 

The Poetry Friday Roundup is hosted today by Tabatha Yeatts at The Opposite of Indifference.

  1. This made me smile. I wonder if anyone has ever done a picture book of haikus about animals. If not, we need one!

  3. Love it, Robyn. The near-rhyme of 'crocodile's domicile' is clever.

  7. Nice! Made me think of Lee's book Alligators Overheard. I know this is about crocodiles- but the words got my mind thinking in all different directions. Beautiful in its simplicity. :)

  14. Ooh! Very nice! Love the way the words flow together, and the rhythm they create -- not to mention that perfect image! (AND the fact that the banner even matches the topic!)

  23. Very nice, but the orange is hard on my eyes. I'm fighting the flu so just about everything is. :(

  24. Oooh. A "Dunn, dunnn, dunnnnnnnn" ending! Cool.
    Snaps fingers in praise.

  25. *gulp* I love how quickly you build this. Each line increases the tension, and I find myself mentally standing in the swampland of Florida, wondering if I can run fast enough.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I find myself tiptoeing away... I read that they can run pretty fast on land. So yeah, I'd be running.

  27. I like this one! I really need to try this. You inspire me! :) xo
