another silly poem in honor of Poetry Wednesday

This one's for you, Josie! (we have a feeling you think about many of the same things...) Check out more poetry over at Kris'.

WHY? (by James Stevenson)

Why is it...
While other people
Are thinking about all kinds of
Important things...
I am thinking about
What it would be like
To jump barefoot
Into an open box
Of jelly doughnuts?

That is a fun, adorable poem. Maybe if we all thought like that we would not our grow so weary with our ordinary lives. Thank you for this.

When I read this to Josie, she just grinned. And she loved your zombie faces. They inspired a little zombie face making in the kitchen.

I saw a Unicorn with Wings outfit today at the resale and immediately thought of L. Too late to send it for Halloween, so we'll just have to watch the blog for pictures. I'm excited to see what she dreams up.

Oh that is so Josie! And I wish it was "so me." Yes, my goal is to become, as I age, an individual who could forgo every once in a while logic and commensense that I might impulsively leap headfirst into a box of jelly donuts, or some other pursuit equally as sweet and silly.
