A new leaf, looking
like wilted spinach, dropped down
On a stone gargoyle,
Right on the tip of the tongue,
Salad in dappled sunlight.

This was for Linda Kruschke’s Paint Chip Poetry challenge. The challenge was to use two of the paint color names from the picture above in a tanka form poem. She said there were extra points if we could use four of the words in a poem that still makes sense and extra points for a silly poem. I have a silly poem — that still makes some kind of sense — with five color names, so I hope it is extra point worthy. 🙂

Ha! I love this. You get double bonus points for using five paint chips AND making me laugh.
Hee hee. So glad it made you laugh. 🙂
I like the part about “salad.”
Ha ha. Thank you. 🙂
Fun tanka, Susan. I love gargoyles and this one’s obviously a vegetarian ;>)
