I was a little behind on Day 5 of Inktober, so I had decided to combine the themes from Day 5 and 6 into a single drawing. The themes were “chicken” and “drooling.” I hope you enjoy the poem that I wrote to accompany it.
Stomach growls with hunger
Staring at the roasted chicken
Glistening in the store,
He salivates on the window.
This poem and drawing is based on the word “spell.”
A little bit of woof,
A little bit of ruff,
Some bones, some meat,
Mix it together
With a “poof” and a bow-wow
You magically transformed
Into a cow.
The following poem and drawing is based on the word “roasted.”
Squirrels gather around the campfire
Sniffing the most delicious scent
Honey roasted nuts
Floating beside his beloved
Watching the sun set
I apologize as it has been a long time since I posted any poetry here. To add a little inspiration for myself, I decided to write short poems based on drawings I did last month for Inktober. It is turning out to be quite fun, so I hope you enjoy them The first poem is based off of the word “poisonous”
Her body sprawled on the jungle floor.
Her legs turned black and blue.
The snake… slithered away.
Here is another poem I wrote for “poisonous”
Carpet soaked with red wine,
she lay motionless on the floor,
broken glass scattered by her side.
Playing Monopoly in the sky,
a big board game below my eyes.
Little houses, not just red and green,
people trying to live…
the American dream
She brightens his darkness
and softens his edges,
yin and yang of love.
