Yucca Yellow Flowers

10 May

Yucca with Yellow FlowersNothing exciting happened today. I don’t know what I’m going to write about. All I saw was this darn yucca plant with yellow flowers in it.

My friend Rumpy is having a poetry day on Friday and I’ve been trying to think what I should write – so maybe I’ll get some poetry practice in now. I’ve got to fill up the space with something. So here goes.

 

Yucca Yellow Flowers

 Last year I yearned for adventure

Much more than I found in my yard

Scratchy offered me yarn and a yo-yo

and I yelped when I bit it too hard

 

My younger person served me some yogurt

and yummy it turned out to be

but I let out a yap when he didn’t

say yes to my need to be free

 

Yesterday I ran for my trails

Off yonder I started to cower

And I yelled when I felt the sharp poke of

a yucca with yellow flowers

      Thanks Collies and Chuck. I sometimes water the yuccas in my back yard – but I have to be very careful when I do it.

      Thanks Marina. Now I’d better head over to Rumpy’s blog for his poetry day.

    Wow! Bongo, you are a talented poet!!!! I am NOT, so I need to learn it from you or Rumpy!!!
    Those yucca yellow flowers are very cute! 🙂

      Thanks Kevin. Just hang out with Rumpy and me and you’ll pick up some poetry skills. My person thought the yellow flowers were cute, but they’re not good for eating so I’m not so sure.

    The yellow flowers are trying to make the yucca plant not so yucky? It’s just so “opposite attract” kinda thing…
    Loved the poem – reality poetry!

    Hey Bongo, Jet here.

    Dude, admit it… you’ve taken the poetry class @ Scooby Doo Academy on the sly!

      Hey Jet, I didn’t even know Scooby Doo Academy had a poetry class. I might have to take it next. I took my class from Rumpy.

        Hey Bongo,

        Do you think Rumpy took the class?

         
      • Bongo

        May 12, 2012 at 11:52 am

        Hey Jet, Rumpy’s a really good poet. I bet he did take the class.

        Hey Rumpy,

        Had that feeling, too.

        Hey Jet, I wish you guys lived closer so we could all leave messages there for each other.

    Multi-talented Bongo! I especially like the line, “My younger person served me some yogurt

    and yummy it turned out to be”. A poetic treat! 🙂
