Slice of Life Story Challenge: 18 of 31

Update on the March Madness Poetry Tournament

Amy from The Poem Farm captured the lead early on with a fabulous poem around the word bent.  Her second verse was magical with images of rocks and riddles.  

I have been obsessed with smoothing out the rythym with mine.  Here’s the first:

Harrumph!
Capybara galumphs to lunch.
She’ll meet her friend for honeyed tea,
served with salumptious grass to munch.
Capybara galumphs with glee.

“Today for lunch, it’s celery crunch.”
They spy on the outdoor marquee.
Capybara sits and cries a bunch.
They then harrumph, “This simply cannot be!”

My latest revision:

Capybara galumphs to lunch.
Meeting friends for honeyed tea
and Salumptious Grassy Munch,
Capybara galumphs with glee.

“Today for lunch, it’s celery crunch.”
They spy on the outdoor marquee.
Capybara garrumps a bunch,
only to harrumph, “It simply can’t be.”

I am excited for my CYBILS poetry committee members who have advanced:
Amy
MaryLee
Julie
Laura

Susan

I am rooting for them all.
