This is a repeat and I apologize to those who’ve read it already, but I just got back from a wonderful (busy) week with my four grandsons. I’ll get back in the swing of things soon.
A Dash of Sunny prompt by Sanaa Rizvi
Write a poem or prose piece which is inspired by your favorite author. It can range from an autobiography to a novel. Whichever strikes your poetic muse. You can also opt and choose your favourite quote and go along with it. The possibilities are endless.
There are rabbits all over the place:
Fiver, Hazel, Bigwig and Buttercup,
poking little noses under the chair,
disturbing dust bunnies sleeping there.
I round them up and stuff them back into their place,
just in time to see Gandalf blowing smoke rings,
oh, so pretty – the colors – the shapes, then I shake myself
and grab a skinny Gollum and a fat little Hobbit
playing riddles and hide and seek,
Gollum hisses at me. What cheek!
But I place them gently in their cubbyhole,
thinking I’ve got the mess licked,
ack, Mrs.Pollifax and Miss Marple are sitting
down and I have no tea ready, so I gently
push them back into the first shelf, then
get back to my dusting, with a longing look
over my shoulder at Mr. Bradbury.
