jingles in the sunlight

horn fly

jingles in sunlight

poised on a cow’s bell






tweet tweet, tweet tweet, chirp

vaarroom . . .

distant horn sounds

vaarroom . . .

tweet tweet

zzzzz zzzzz zzzzz

“A fly?”

swat, swat, slap . . . .

long yawn and sigh

eyes closing



in a crazy mood

eating gingersnaps

indigo blue light below




rat-a-tat . . . rat-a-tat


“Yeh, yeh, yeh, I’m coming!  Grrrrrrr!”

tramp tramp tramp tramp

sound of door opening . . .

“Are you coming to work today?”

“Oh my stars!  Yes.  I’m sorry!  I’ll be there in fifteen minutes.”



by mary ann blinkhorn

-a very silly poem, please forgive me!  Lol…

    There’s many of us done this methinks – though not all would admit to it. Very funny and strangely astute.

    It is an interesting piece with use of onomatopoeia. Sometimes we just need some sound to make sense. Last weekend, I almost bought a mini cow bell originated from New Zealand,which surely will help me understand this poem better.

  5. Fun! And a perfect poem to teach onomatopoeia to writing students, too! 🙂

  6. You warned us that fhis was going to contain a lot of sounds! You did not dissapoint. I really like this poem!
