Coat hooks hold winter hates like bare branches hold old nests.
The street is my heart.
My eggs stared back like sick eyes
It was so hot we fried
The skinny skates are flat as plates.
They feed on small invertebrates.
The water dripped, dripped, dripped from the leaky faucet.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is Sweet
And so are you
Life is like a box of chocolates
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow
The slithery snake sneaked stealthily
The breezes taste of apple peel
The air is full of smells to feel
Water walked over the rocks of the placid stream
Fog more- - fog more
Splat splat- - downpour
