Eyes And Nose

Rating: 3.6

Eyes and nose

With impacts I came home
In the heat, cold no more.

Set paper on table,
With H-2 as pencil.

Drew lines after lines
Scratched soft and hard.

Some I made straight
Others round, partly curved.

Wondered if reindeer
Or cute Chinese girl…

Heard of first in a song
It was fun, good advice
Saw latter walk outside
Sweet chick, a pinball!

Why not both as combined?
Why not join, customise?
Not to fill the pocket,
But wise to make jaw fall!

The girl had bony cheeks
Walked cute, old days' meek
Overall a woman and naive
I thought of lines for eyes
Beneath them a nose, round
Shining nose of the Rudolf
Or dressed red-green, a clown.

Therefore thoughts kept marching
Idea of a child, Hopscotch playing.

Finally ignored all…
Dropped the paper cuts.

Why not do very best?
Chose the words, wrote poem.

What a great way to entice the reader. Visualize the drawing. Then drop it. And then remember the words. Brilliant! !
