Writing prompt: I thought I saw…an imagination

I have not been feeling very poetic lately, but I thought I would give today a try.  It is very basic with simple words, nothing too complex on my brain right now:images (10)

I thought I saw a moonbeam on a sunny day

I thought I saw a mermaid swimming in the bay

I thought I saw a unicorn prancing on a hill

I thought I saw a platypus with a long duck bill

I saw a child was reading from a book so fine

Not across the pages but in her little mind

A learning tool, a fantasy, a journey in a nook

I thought I saw the future as she took another look

About S.K. Nicholls

is a steel magnolia from GA who currently resides with her rocket scientist husband in Central Florida. Even though she had a reputation as the class clown in grade school, she managed to successfully achieve a career in nursing that spanned thirty-five years. Putting down the stethoscope and picking up the pen, she started writing compelling, thought-provoking historic novels and riveting contemporary crime romps, telling it like it was and telling it like it is. Orphaned from her mother at an early age, she survived foster care, and in her youth resided in an orphanage in the North GA Mountains, the Ethel Harpst Home. Four adults call her mom and four little people call her grandmother. She enjoys reading, comedy shows, salt-water fishing, boating, and brewing Kombucha. Her family owns and operates one of the oldest and largest nudist resorts in the nation located in Florida, Cypress Cove.

  1. That should be ever kid’s childhood.

  2. Simple is what the children need. I loved it, miss-not-feeling-poetic! You did a great job.

  3. This would make an adorable children’s book.

  4. So a cute little piece, lovely 🙂

  5. This is great, nothing wrong with simple, it works really well.

  6. I was envisioning a board book with each line taking up a page or two. It made me think of the books I used to read to my kids. It would be lovely. I’d buy it.

    • Well thank you. I will read it to my granddaughter. I am trying to get her more interested in the computer. She is three and she wants to play with it, but, of course, she hasn’t really figured it out yet. I want her to know, eventually, that is for more than just games. Like going to the library. That will come.

  7. Reblogged this on mybrandofgenius and commented:

    First try at a little poem in a long while 🙂

  8. That is wonderfully sweet! 🙂

  9. Like the poem — love the picture too! What’s not to like?

  10. Lovely!
