Anniversary Re-Blog (Riding Shotgun)

Sometimes I enjoy playing around with children’s poetry…:)

Riding Shotgun

I live inside a turtle shell,
where no one bothers me.
I spend the days in perfect haze,
just dreaming lazily.
I slowly move from place to place,
I’m in no rush to find,
what I don’t know or can’t explain,
for that I don’t have time.
My Buddy is a snapper,
I chose him carefully,
if you don’t want a part of him,
you’ll want no part of me.
We hang around the marshy ponds,
with weeds and mud galore.
I never have to shower once,
now who can ask for more?
Sometimes my Buddy comes inside,
and spends some time with me,
he listens while I talk with him,
he’s real good company.
I live inside a turtle shell,
where no one bothers me.
I spend my time in perfect rhyme,
Why not? I’m only three!

    I really liked this poem…it works on more than one level! On the one hand, a great turtle-eye view of the world. On the other hand, maybe a description of the “if I don’t see it, I don’t have to deal with it” mentality? You are a very good writer!

      You’re right, though it’s funny because sometimes I’ll finish writing something and not realize how it can be interpreted until I read it back and play with it a little. I enjoy writing kids poems and short stories but don’t do it often enough. Thank you very much for the compliment. That was nice of you to say…:)
