Playing with a flower

I found a perfect magnolia blossom on the ground in front of my neighbor’s house, and decided to play with it like a child might play with a toy. First I drew all over on petal with colored pens, then I pried it open to reveal its fascinating center. I took pictures along the way.

 

Perfect blossom

Pen changes color the longer it has been on the flower

Adding color

Smearing, scribbling

What’s inside?

Ooo

Nifty center

Pretty flower

#NaPoWriMo 2017, poem 22

I tried a variant on the haiku form…multiple haiku with the same first two lines and different third lines.

Koi pond full of fish

Cute flippers, whiskers, mustache

I want to taste them

Koi pond full of fish

Cute flippers, whiskers, mustache

They sure look meaty

Koi pond full of fish

Cute flippers, whiskers, mustache

Google: no recipes

Koi pond full of fish

Cute flippers, whiskers, mustache

Seems they taste real bad

Koi pond full of fish

Cute flippers, whiskers, mustache

So nice to look at

Koi pond full of fish

Cute flippers, whiskers, mustache

Pretty, lovely fish
