It is funny how something so big
Can fear something so small
Look at the elephant and the mouse
Or a spider discovered in a human’s house
The little creature barley makes a squeak
But Elle toots and humans scream
Marvel at the brave plover bird
Would you dare step into a crocodile’s jaw?
Winged creatures birds, butterflies and bats
Striking fear alongside snakes
We push these little creatures out
Taking over their habitats
Day 9’s challenge
For Day 9 the challenge was to “we challenge you today to write a poem in which something big and something small come together.”
Where did day 9 go?
My day vanished yesterday. I worked late. Then took longer getting my son to bed because he offered to tell me a bedtime story about a mermaid and it peaked my interest that 1. He had tried to think of something I’d like, 2. His tactics to stay up later and keep me with him. So, I humoured him and he told me a story with mermaids, spiders that steal keys and sharks that are friendly. Then I had a bath, watched an episode of Magicians and it was time to sleep – no time to write a poem had presented itself.
I had an idea to do something about a fairy and a dragon but the poem just didn’t happen…
It will be just as busy today but I am determined to catch-up. Here is my belated day 9 poem and I shall try my hardest to write another today for my day 10 poem… wish me luck…
