From Head To Toe



I had it in my head,
what I wanted to write.
(Roses are red?) No…

It’s on the tip of my tongue.
(Violets are blue?)
No, that’s for the young.

It went out of my head
as soon as I smashed my toe
on the foot of the bed.

Darn it.
It was going to be good, too.

Written for Poetic Bloomings Prompt #108: Bad Form / Bad Poem. Posted for day 80 in 100 Days of Spring – 2013.



    1. I know…as I was reading the prompt, it came to mind immediately…and then Marie had used it in her example, so I was trying to steer clear…or come up with some other way to use it. I wrote my other “bad” poem, first…but did eventually come back ’round to roses & violets! 😉
