Kicking up your Heels!

She knew her shoes 
Didn't get there on their own 
But would she have seen them 
If she wasn't playing her xylophone?


I wonder how those shoes got up there
Said Sandra as she lifted her eyes high
Blowing into her xylophone
Watching the clouds roll by


She glanced from the paper to the sky
Memorizing spelling words
Like xylophone
Was a sure way to make time go by.

Grandma offers a weekly challenge called succinctly yours. Her picture displayed above should illicit a story from you of 140 characters/words or less. She even offers a bonus word to make it more fun. This week it is xylophone. Take her challenge! How low can you go? I used Design 215 to aid in my character counting.

Three cute and clever poems again this week, Judy! I like the memorizing spelling words one.

When I clicked on your link at Grandma's Goulash, it took me right back to Grandma's Goulash again. But eventually I found your post for this week.

I like number 2..and I am wondering how the shoes got up in the tree too :)

I like #1 because I can totally see myself as a child so immersed in something that I didn't even pay attention to something as huge as my shoes getting tossed to the sky. ;)

Memorizing 'Xylophone'? Yes, one of the rare words starting with an x! Nicely Judy!

These are really good.

However whenever I see shoes like that over anything, I think of gangs :)
I learned about that a few years ago and have not forgotten!
