"Come Back Tomorrow", 200-207/365


Kell's daily poetry prompt is to: Make a list of ten images of things you have seen in the last 24 hours.  Use all of them in a poem.  Well, I narrowed it down to our walk across the street - I easily found more than ten images.  This is a VERY free-flowing "poem".  The following photos were taken with my old camera as it was raining and really windy.  I am surprised how well they came out as I was hard pressed to keep the camera still.  I heard a tornado hit and destroyed a Lowe's a couple hours away from us.


Come Back Tomorrow!

Three girls practically flew 
to the farm, eager to see
the pony we hope to lease.


A welcoming whinny said "Hello",


Tabby smiled and scratched,


Hammock offered relaxation,


Tree and tire swing beckoned "Come play"!


Peacock preened,


Goat nodded,


"Salt & Pepper" stared


and "springtime" entered our hearts.


But storm clouds gathered; "Tornado Watch"!
Back home we trod, downhearted.


We'll come back tomorrow.  And wonder until then, which one is our new friend.



I will be taking a "Blogger Spring Break" 
and will be back on Tuesday, April 24th. 
I hope to show you a photo of the pony
we will be leasing.

Until then, Happy Easter!

My goodness, that is a lot of riches for just across the street! This looks like an ideal place to raise a house full of children.

I hope you're enjoying your break!
