Full Drawn

Image courtesy of Theme Thursday


Empty

You see my face?
An empty space.
You would suppose
I’d have a nose.

 “Hey, artist guys!
Where are my eyes
and mouth and hair.
No ink to spare?!”

But wait.  A check…
Whew.  Got a neck.
My shoulders? Short.
(They’re down a quart.)

“Please – illustrate
each facial trait
and make my head
full-drawn instead.”

(Theme Thursday provided the above picture as a prompt.  Interestingly, Poets United Think Tank Thursday's prompt is headlines.  Get it??!!)

  4. You brought levity to an otherwise somber perspective of "headlines".

  7. Sherry - thanks! I did the poem on the picture first - and then, to my surprise, discovered the PU/TTT prompt was headlines. It was too much fun to pass up.

  11. Headlines. As always, thinking outside the box. I adored this one. You got so much out of the prompt and left me scratching my head until I saw the prompt. Great stuff, Randi!

    Mine today was from... Poetic Asides!

  16. How fun!
    When I saw the image on the prompt page, I thought, "huh--no face even though the prompt is 'face'--huh."

    You took it so beyond that! Way to go!
