LITTLE HATCHLING

copyright 2015, Joy Acey
Oh, look!
What do I see?
I've hatched my egg.
A little me.

He may not be
a perfect match.
I'll always love him
My Little Hatch.


    A mama bird creates little hatchlings.  I created a picture to go with this poem.  What is something you have created?  A fort, cookies, a card for a friend?  Can you write a poem today about something you have created?

I can create many things.  It just takes time and patience.

  1. This is darling, Joy. You hardly even need the second stanza– the first one packs a nice punch all on its own!

    1. Michelle,
      Thank you for your comment. I really appreciate your insight. I may well drop the second stanza.

  2. This is adorable, Joy! Love these lines: "I've hatched my egg / A little me." And your illustration is the perfect companion to the poem.

    1. Thanks,Violet. Actually the illustration came first. I'm taking a watercolor class at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum and this was a piece I did to practice washes. I want to get better at rt so I can illustrate more of my poems.

  5. Joy,
    I think Michelle's right. I like it all on its own. The drawing is darling! It looks professional to me! Fun too!

    1. Thanks, Linda. I haven't made up my mind yet. I wasn't sure if that "a little me," didn't sound too egotistical. I thought this could be used with a discussion on how babies, puppies, kittens,kids and colts all look like their parents. A seal can't give birth to a baby duck.
      I am having fun in my art classes.
