A Little dVerse Tale Hits The Trail!

The cat is a bit late but that is what happens when so many posts ahead is my fate. Still the cat had to have some dVerse play with Claudia's artwork on display.


The snow creatures were lost,
Thanks to old Jack Frost.
But they were determined to get home.
So they began their long roam.


They passed a band,
Who wanted a hand.
But the snow creatures roared.
They were a scary horde.


They got offered a job,
From some dude named, Bob.
$2 to mow a lawn.
They weren't some pawn.


They thought they found their mother.
But then they found she was another.
Aliens were melting her.
They ran away protecting their fur.


The magic washing machine lied.
It said they would change the Tide.
But Tide went all over the floor.
They didn't like that chore.
 


The ruler of this strange place,
Sprayed them with mace.
She was a mean old bitty.
She gave the snow creatures no pity.


They had heard the tale of Peter Pan.
So they thought that was a plan.
They would fly home by the moon,
When the clock ran away with the spoon.


Or was that a dish?
Either way they got their wish.
The snow creatures believed and they flew.
A cow greeted them by the moon with a moo.


They made it home to the great white plains.
Jack Frost's disciples were causing pains.
They had locked the alligators away.
The snow creatures made them all pay.


They got their paint and brush,
And soon they were flush.
They erased Jack Frost from view,
And all his little disciples too.

There you are. Don't go messing with snow creatures at your sand bar. Wait! Maybe they were sheep running away from little bo beep? Hmm like my version better though. So we'll go with that at my show. Now my tale from Claudia's artwork has come to pass. Jack Frost can stay erased and keep winter far away from my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  1. Snow creatures will not freeze but that one bit
    Fantastic paintings by Claudia one must admit
    Water color is most difficult medium
    And when done one really triumphs
    Thanks to Claudia for sharing her lovely exhibits

  2. Jack Frost has disciples - who knew?
    You made a really inventive story out of that.
    And yes, that woman looks possessed by aliens.

  4. said they would change the tide...ha...
    if the snow creatures wandered i would be the one
    that squandered the rest of the day by the band

  5. haha this was such fun to read
    rhyming pics here at your feed
    washer would change the tide
    did you read the warning guide
    think I might help a passing band
    or perhaps, just listen as I stand
    to a tune under a harvest moon
    hope jack frost doesn't come soon
    hmm..interrupting your planned day
    putting Claudia's artwork on display
    nice to change the routine here and there
    letting your rhymes come out with flare

    soon it will be fall, put away the beach ball :(

    Replies
    1. lol the beach ball is gone
      Tossed out on the lawn
      Or the cat ate it
      He'd do that a bit
      The warning guide is never read
      Could that mean off with my head?

  6. If you'r a snow creature don't get lost, keep your wits and don't be bossed. But of course you get bamboozled by Jack Frost and you want home at any cost.

    I enjoyed Claudia's blog.

  10. Ha, I'll never look at art the same again. I like the second to last one with the big flowers and strange men. Your story ends well. Erasing villains sends them right to hell.

    That really is some great art, though.
