Jinksy posted this colorful graphic on her blog to inspire and invited her friends to link what their muse brought forth to accompany the picture. My muse took one look at the glorious colors and one image came immediately to mind.
What a great way to start the day. Thanks, Jinksy!
Addendum: After I posted this, I heard this voice calling from somewhere in cyberspace, "Patticakes, Patticakes..."and I knew that somehow I'd written exactly 55 words. Amazing. So here you go, G-Man. But how'd you do that???
Tinkling music, twinkling lights
Sound of children laughing
Greet me with the morning sun
Prancing stallions, leaping frogs
Run round and round me, calling gaily
“Hey, wake up! Come join the fun!”
Summer colors bloom all about me
Everything bright and gay. I open my eyes;
Then I know. It’s a calliope kind of day!
