Stones | A Poem

Josh had to do a poetry scavenger hunt as his homework last week.  He had to read a series of poems in order to answer the ten questions that his teacher had assigned the class.  These were mainly silly, goofy poems from GigglePoetry.com. He had so much fun reading the poems that he got inspired to write his own.

Stones - A Poem (Oct 4, 2011)

Stones are big

Stones are small

Rocks are everywhere

Boulders are gigantic

and stones are ugly

and pretty

Rocks are magnets.

Daddy and Zoë

Zoë is such a daddy’s girl, like every little girl should be.  When I see how they are together, it just melts my heart. 

Yes, the other person in the drawing is supposed to be Chris.  No, he is not in a dress.  According to Zoë, he’s wearing a pair of pants and he’s standing with his legs apart.  The pink thing on top of his head is not a flower, but a crown.  “Daddy’s the king and I am the princess.  Under a rainbow canopy, with flowers on top. 



The yellow strips at the bottom were from those plastic packaging strips that hold cartons together during shipment.  She got some from one of the boxes that came in for me and decided to cut them into short strips and glue them to the bottom of her drawing to “make it prettier.”
