my happy poem

On our last day of Writing Class, actually called Freewrite I, we were asked to respond to one of two prompts:

"A recipe for happiness"


"When I rule the world..."

It just so happened that the table we sat around was strewn with rubber stamps and colored pencils and ink pads. They were preparations for a later activity, but I'm not one for waiting, when there are colors to be used.

Here's what I came up with.


Happiness is
perfect stamps
of soaring butterflies
and leafy bent old trees;

Happiness is a smiling sun
on a rubber block

that I
can stamp all over your mopey face -
there'll be none of that
when I rule the world.


Shared with the real toads. Check out their imaginary gardens for much awesomeness!
