For Sam's ee cummings challenge

Real Toads member Sam Edge, who, like me, is only now beginning to feel the effects of spring, challenged members and visitors to the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads to use, misuse, or abuse the English language √° la e.e. cummings.
I'm not in that class (the cummings class) of poets.
I'm not even participating in NaPoWriMo (national poetry writing month) but today as I ate some eggs for lunch, our dog Lindy was lying on the deck in the sunshine, her back up to the sun-hot screen door.
As I brought her in for a drink of water and some refreshing slices of cucumber (her favourite vegetable), the following bit of nonsense came to me. And, as all poets know, if it's in your head for more than two breaths, it must be written down.

I love this and how fabulous it feels when you read it! Lindy loves cukes-my hound loves Balsamic Brussel Sprouts-I dropped one.
So fun Kay, you charmed us with sun and day-ee would smile big! ((hugs))

Made me smile too, Kay. At this end I am adding one ailment to another till I am beginning to feel like Job. Sigh.

Kay said...

Wishing you sun and warmth, Kay. Wow! Lindy likes cucumber? Just wanted to stop by and thank you very, very much for adding conversation and comments to others on my post. I'm so tied up right now working on our trip album that I won't be able to visit until it's done. You've taken some of the pressure off for me. We did have four Canadians in our tour group.

Love this! And, in my book, any poetry inspired by a dog is good poetry... *smile* Sitting in the morning sun reading this, and the feeling fits! Lovely!

Oh this reminded me of a shop I saw when visiting Ipswich..."Fryday's Fish All day Every Day". Needless to say it was that Great British institution the fish'n'chippie!!!

Loved the fun and feel of this one. Here's to Sundays &*<> YAM xx
