I try new things
to find out what
Today's poem started because I was dreaming about dancing and I needed a rhyme for ballerina. I ended up looking in five different rhyming dictionaries to try to find the words to rhyme. Alas, I couldn't find what I was looking for. I will have to try another end rhyme. But as often happens as I'm working hard, searching for just the right word, my sense of the ridiculous takes over. I laugh at myself spending so much time on words. This is what I came up with. I probably should let it hatch a lot longer in a drawer (or a lost file on my computer.)
I fell for a dancer from Argentina
Who loved to dance at the marina.
She ate semolina,
And tons of farina.
She was a whale of a ballerina.
Can you try writing something new today? Have fun trying new things. As mothers the world over are known for saying, how do you know if you'll like something unless you try it.
