Since the theme today for the March Challenge is 'nature' (in honor of Luther Burbank, who was born today in 1849) I decided to use one of my own original photographs to illustrate my poem. The photo was taken at a recent local garden and flower show, and the poetic form is Ya Du.

Go To Sleep, Katie
Sitting in bed with my most bestest book,
bunny ears on…let the magic begin.
This is the moment I love. Take a look…
“Go to sleep, Katie!” “Hey Mom, in a min.”
I’m up to the chapter right near the close,
and what happens next? A conjurer’s trick!
I know how this ends, but - fun to suppose…
“Go to sleep, Katie!” “Hey Mom, in a tic.”
I’m finally finished. Gosh, that was fun!
“Go to sleep, Katie!” “Okay Mom. I’m done.”
Branch with Blue Flowers
Petals of blue…
déjà vu. I
sense you, but why?
Is it I see
something I know is part of me?
