Inspiration everywhere: I cook bark

Posted in: Inspiration

Another image from the random “temp images do not delete” folder. I don’t really get into poetry but I would have to say this is probably one of my favourite poems. I don’t know who it’s by, in fact up until a moment ago, I couldn’t have told you where I got it from.

I love the dark sense of humour in it’s 25 words. It’s a little bit defeatist but it makes me smile. I can just see the duck taking the arrow and walking off with it whilst the archer stands dejected. The boys don’t get it but one day they will:)

Anyway, I found this at a site I haven’t been to in ages but is efinitely worth your having a look at. It’s not really kids related but it’s dripping with inspiration. It’s called stopping off place and you should definitely check it out.

Inspiration everywhere, even in poetry, who’d a thunk it?!
