drooling ~ WoW

     Words for Wednesday is a moveable feast of participants. Each month the prompts ~ words, pictures, themes, or even phrases are provided by someone new. The aim of the words is to encourage us to write. A story, a poem, whatever comes to mind. This month the words will be provided by River on her Drifting Through Life blog.

I watch the clock as the hour nears,
the thought of hot pizza nearly brings me to tears.

I shift and fidget in my chair,
I'm almost tempted to pull out my hair!

My stomach growls, the doorbell rings,
I jump from my seat as my stomach sings!

Then it happened and was such a sad case
in my hurry to answer, I broke my favorite vase!

That's what I get, for racing down the stairs,
Where I will get another, I'm just unawares!

It was quite unique, made with a chainsaw
A bear in a tutu, with a lace bra!

The derelict that made it was really quite skilled
I have no doubt there isn't anything he couldn't build.

Carving the wood like it was buttery silk
With the creativity of a beautiful quilt.

But what am I saying, what is this bedlam?
Just give me my pizza, hand over the ham!!


  1. Odd looking vase but I sort of like it. What a charming poem.

    Have a lovely day.

  2. Oh, breaking such a vase would spoil my appetite! Fun story.

  3. Your poem made me laugh even while wondering if that vase could be glued back together.


Thanks for stopping by and catching my words!
