Writephoto is a weekly challenge, hosted by KL, where a picture prompt is provided every Thursday and we are invited to create a post… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever we choose, as long as it is fairly family-friendly.
This week’s prompt post can be found here –
Standing by the pathway right beside the trees
I espy a mammoth who hasn’t any knees
He doesn’t want to talk at all, perhaps he’s been struck dumb
or maybe he’s just hanging round waiting for his Mum
His colour’s sort of rusty red, his tusks are large and round
His floppy ears can hear it all, every little sound
He’s smiling right across his face, it goes from ear to ear
as if to say to everyone there is no need for fear
He seems to breathe with little grunts, I thought there’d be more noise
Despite his size, and little eyes, he shows tremendous poise
As I approach much nearer he whispers with a hiss
Hello my lovely, come up close, and let me have a kiss!
