The poetry challenge at real toads today is based on the work of Sanford Lyne. We were to choose a word group and use it to write a poem. The word group I chose was: blackbirds (I changed to peacock), snow, tail feathers, and ink.
peafowl strutting stately and proud
bright blue beauty against white snow
tail feathers trail gracefully behind
with leering eyes like a pen and ink drawing
As a second one I chose the word group including: mother, folds, twilight and hands.
