Words that flow...

Words and images - powerful elements of our everyday life. Most of the time we take them for granted, but sometimes something happens to make you aware of how important they are... and how thankful you are to have the opportunity to use or appreciate them. Here lies some of my words and pictures (which are untouched apart from cropping, unless I've said otherwise) - Please add your words to mine, and leave a comment. Thanks for visiting!

(Y) Yeti Spaghetti


(Lake Louisa, Sussex)

The picture and the poem are definately not going to match up today! I was having a visit around, following links to links etc and found myself reading a post about Halloweens past, and Mysti's childhood memory of entertaining neighbours and friends at their home - turning it into a haunted house. It sounded so much fun, and just a little creepy...

Anyway, whilst reading it, there was a bit about a concoction of grapes and spaghetti they used to create a blood-curdling mixture. And my mind, jumping back and forth as it does, jumped to yet another of my kiddie rhymes (I will take a break from them soon, and put up some more adults' ones! :-)), so here it is:

Yeti Spaghetti

Yeti spaghetti is made of worms.
Yeti spaghetti wriggles and squirms.
The worms are set in wobbly jelly
to help them slide down into the belly.

Yetis are sweaty, with hair so thick.
A wet yeti's smell would make you sick.
Twenty skunks with their tails raised in fright
would somehow seem a 'more pleasant' plight!

Now. When wet yetis eat spaghetti,
sucking up worms and being sweaty,
there'd be no time to make a complaint -
the sight and smell would make you faint!

Probably should've done 'Zombie Necropolis', being Halloween, but it'll save! :-) Nice one Mysti - loved your ghost house!

Kids would love this type of thing read to them in school! If you were here, I'd be inviting you to my class to read some of these!

Hello mysti - it's a pleasure to meet you! The smile was mutual, believe me! :-)

Glad you enjoyed it hope.

mother of invention - If I was there, I'd come to your class and read them (when my older son was smaller, I did actually go to his school and read a few :-))

If there are no elfs or elfins playing piccolo in this enchanted wood, there soon will be.
Peace

goatman - oh, but there are... you can hear them play, though I think it was the voice of pan-pipes I heard the wind carrying through the trees...

brian - I was going to link up tonight, but when I read your rather raunchy offering today, I wondered if I should wait awhile (there are at least a couple of youngsters reading my offerings!) So, later...? :-) But I will definately come see your poetry!
