- Mark Twain

"I'm content to stand on tradition. I'm even more content to wipe my feet on it."
- Aaron Allston

"I was brought up in the great tradition of the late nineteenth century: that a writer never complains, never explains and never disdains."

We Write Poems- Prompt #43 - Guardian Angel

My Guardian Angel

Smudge of dirt
upon his cheek.
Scratch on his left knee.
Curly hair
a tangled mess.
Reminding me
~ of me.
Poorest soul~
who drew the lot:
My guardian to be!

" T
urn around.. twist.. skip.. jump up .. jump down.. stand on one foot.. hop left.. hop right.. OK.. blink.. dance.. wave and nod...

Reuben you are out.. yes out.. you know you are out.. you nodded.. I know I said nod.. but you weren't supposed to nod..

Alright.. is everybody ready.. turn around three times then spit.. yes I said spit..clap.. raise your hands in the air and clap..

David you're out too.. you clapped.. even if you didn't mean to you did clap.. you raised your hands right up in the air and clapped..

It's hot out here..holler if you're hot.. sit down.. stand up.. run in place.. hold hands.. take three steps forward..

Tyler and Tana both of you are out.. I saw you both stepping.. stepping gets most people so don't be ashamed.. yep you stepped..

It's time to pick up the pace now yawl..laugh.. sing.. shout.. skip.. look up.. look down.. put your hands in the air.. pull your ear.. pick your nose.. let your left eye open.. then close..

Oh NO! Kirstin .. I saw your eye.. it closed.. then opened.. then closed.. bad as I hate to say it.. you are out.. Lizzy don't look so smug.. your eye winked and blinked and rolled around.. see .. there it goes again.. that sad little eye rolling in your head.. you're still out..

Now we are ready.. I am ready for fun.. every body stretch.. stretch left.. reach.. reach and stretch right.. lift your left knee up.. squat.. kick.. Dance.. dance.. dance..

Silly's no wonder no one danced.. Sometimes I almost catch myself being silly.. what I should have said was.. Simon Says Dance! "

Fun photos and lovely writing. I liked the rhythm you infused in the acrostic. Simon Says was a tough game!!
