daft picture poem

Ceiling too low
I want to grow
but it gets in the way of my stretch.

If I bounce a bit
I’ll hit my nose
but at least he’ll wake up at my screech.

This is silly.
I might as well
climb down and go and make tea.

    At least you had some fun with this picture! It was not one that would inspire me. LOL.

  3. Viv, I had the same reluctance at doing anything with the prompt. For a moment I thought of fishes dangling a hook and catching a unsuspecting human. I did like your movement toward poetry and it’s abandonment for a spot of tea. Earl Grey for me with a slice of peach in it.

  4. I really like your response! 🙂 This was a hard one for me too, and I ended up going philosophical with it. Glad to see some humor injected. Well done.

  5. I agree, Viv. The pic was frustrating to write to, but tea is good.

  6. “Daft” is a good word for it. The picture was rather aggravating, I just started picking things around the room, and lamely went somewhere with it when I noticed I was picking fabrics.

    The picture irked me. I put it through a batch of image manipulation processes, smearing it all around, and couldn’t get rid of that ceiling, either.

    The irreverence is most enjoyable. And tea, that too.

    Love your poem! It was all the more funny given that I had just read another interpretation of the picture that was quite a bit more serious. 🙂 I suppose that’s what makes poetry so amazing: part of us goes into each poem we write, making every piece and indeed every interpretation different.

    Fun poem, Viv. The photo prompt sent me in a silly direction about low ceilings too! 😀

    Great response, Viv!

    I rather like this pic, but I couldn’t do anything with it.
