#Paint-Chip Poem – When I was Little…

I enjoyed the aroma of turmeric in mom’s curry
Dad’s old leather boots were curiously in a hurry
A divine touch of luck to discover an Indian Head penny
Lazy lizard beaded key chains of which there were many

Experienced euphoria while gazing at sparkling lakes
Created my own potpourri out of orange peels and floral flakes
The sheer power of Gyarados, a sea serpent, gave me the shakes
So, to calm myself down, I would bake several mini-cakes!

New blogging friend over at revivedwriter introduced me to the concept paint chip poetry created by Linda Kruschke. It was a rather touching experience to go back to my childhood! Thank you!

          Well!! It’s certainly been interesting! Resourcefulness is a handy quality to have in my tool box. I enjoy writing still. 😊 I’ve been healthy, but lost some friends in the journey. πŸ’œ
