Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Today we join Two  SPOILED CATS 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.
Here is our photo challenge
which inspired me to write two poems.

#1 Reminded me of an incident with my daughter when she was
about this age.

There was a little girl
who had a curl right in the 
middle of her forehead.
She had a special plate just
for her. It was quite fancy for
way back then.  
Smack in the middle of the bottom
it had a suction cup to prevent sliding.
She was a gleeful child.  Sometimes
she got so happy chaos happened.
Once while eating she was waving her arms
up and down.
Much to my surprise, she hit the edge of the
plate with her hand.
Food went everywhere including her curl
right in the middle of her noggin.
She opened her eyes, and was surprised 
 her food all over the place 
and in her eyes.

#2  Just looks like what my daughter might have been thinking

How did that happen? you mean it doesn't go there?
It is not a hat
Frankly I don't care.
Wearing my food is more fun
that way I don't have to share.

I have a very special lunch date today.
I might be MIA for a while but no worries I have my camera
Hugs Cecilia

  6. The #2 version is how I saw it and told the Weim boys that just now and I hadn't seen your poems yet! Enjoyed both of your poems. The way we all played with our food when little it's amazing we figured out how to eat with a fork and spoon.
