Today's challenge: Using Jenny's photo (or a photo of your choice), write something of any genre - of no more than 100 words (not inlcluding the prompt, appearing below, in bold text).
I wrote a poem...and alas, I'm a few words OVER the limit. Sue me.
Nothing Rhymes with Orange
Five little pumpkins, sitting on a fence
Four almost hollow, one very dense
Barney, the beagle, wanting out the door
Slammed right into the fence – then there were four
Joe, the next door neighbor, climbed up a tree
Hurled a rock at a gourd – then there were three
Papa, seeing all the mess, kicked the pieces with his shoe
He slid – when he landed, the pumpkins numbered two
Mama saw the carnage and wept for what was gone
Her wails shook the oaken planks…alas, we’re left with one
Lonely pumpkin, whatever will you be?
Smashed to smithereens…
Or carved up, jack-o-lantern style - grinning at me?
