Another Little Poem...

...made up entirely of picture book titles (the last one can be found here).

This is what happens when I spend too long in the picture book section of the library. It inspired a new illustration, too.


Rainstorm

Raindrop, Plop!
This is the Rain
Rain
Love, Splat
Tick-Tock, Drip Drop
The Rain Came Down
Rainstorm
Up
High in the Clouds
Shadows and Reflections
Terrible, Terrible!
Clang Boom Bang!
What’s Up, What’s Down?
Achoo! Bang! Crash!
Ker-Splash!
Monsoon
Roar!
Now What Can I Do?
In My Heart
A Blue So Blue
Close Your Eyes
Make a Wish
Just a Minute
I Can Hear the Sun
Peace at Last
The Gift of Nothing
A Rainbow All Around
Rise and Shine
Let’s Go Home

Ooh- very nice! The little foxes are wonderful. I wonder what adventure the rainstorm interrupted?

what a fun inspiration for poetry! But I like the picture best. Foxes are always cute in my book.

Anne Spollen said...

That would be a great writing prompt --

Yes, the fox pair is adorable, especially when paired with the puddle.

That poem is too cool. Amazing that the titles fit so well and told their own story!
I LOVE your foxes. I really do.

Your PB title poems are really great, and I LOVE your little foxes in the rain. They are so cute! (It looks like pastel, is it?

adrienne said...

Stephanie - It's acrylic, but the way I paint with it, it often comes out looking like pastel.
I love pastel - hate the dust. :)

sruble said...

Cool that it's acrylic! BTW, I feel the same way about pastel that you do, which is why I never use it.

Know what you mean about the dust. I wear a mask.
Lovely colourful fox cubs.
