Scales




Deep in the lake,
that was really a dish
lived five scaley friends,
all of them fish.

If fish have legs, then do chickens have lips? And you're such a poet! I love the little ditties you always come up with.

Thanks for the doublemint earworm!!
Here's one for you....

Great poem... this one and the 'treat' one below. Wonderful color palette, and I like the texture of the scales when enlarged. Speaking of 'enlargement,' your comment on my 'scale' post made me laugh... I've gotten too many of those male 'enhancement' emails.

OH I love their luminous bodies and the girly fish with lips, eyelashes and the most handsome fishy boyfriend of all :) They are the only two that don't have their heads above water ...

When are you going to do a children's book? Of course some of your illos and poems might be R rated, save those for the adult book!
