WORDS FOR WEDNESDAY

May 4, 2016
WORDS FOR WEDNESDAY  selected from group offered on Elephant Child's each week to write a story or a poem.  Try your way with the words and post on her blog and on your blog if you want.  I have put them on her blog in the comments before but this is my first post shared on my own blog.

I picked the third group of words offered by Mark Koopmans:

Vacation
Shark
Toboggan
Orchid
Realtor
iPod



Really, a winter vacation ?
What was in my noggin?
It was the middle of summer
And I was riding a toboggan

Smashing through frozen Ice
I was shocked to find a shark
With an orchid in his fin
Swimming in the dark.

The location wasn't marked
By the GPS on my iPod.
Now I needed a Realtor .
To find this a place of God?

The unique frozen land
Had disappeared ever-after.
But, I love to tell the story
And listen to the laughter.

    One of the joys of Words for Wednesdays is seeing the very different directions that the prompts propel people along.
