And Unicorns

The box read, colored chalk

Her mind saw bright blue skies

Sunflowers with black eyes

Red ladybugs

Orange and pink tulips

Big brown dogs, small white cats

Birthday cakes, party hats

On grey sidewalks

  2. Annette, I really loved this piece! You know, it made me think that there could also be big white dogs and small brown cats, but for some reason those aren’t the words/ images that first come to my mind! πŸ˜€

  9. Your form is definitely the abhanga and the senryu. You get that bit of humor and poignancy all curled up together. ❀ LOVE this, Sis.
