a response to iscriblrs wonderful mystery challenge…enjoy.

A strange thing happened the other night

Under the cover of dark

Something with a sweet tooth paid us a call

He snook into the kitchen, without giving us a fright

And sitting down at my birthday cake, he did park

Having eaten his slice, he went out the door

Lighting up the kitchen , as he passed by the walls

And leaving a trail of cake crumbs on the floor

Silouhette

Acrostic

Silhouette

Some call him a shadowy figure

If you look at the wall carefully enough and

Look, you may just recognise him

He definitely has a definable shape

Of course – you would have a problem catching the real him

Unless you find the door or window that’s casting his form

Even then – he may be standing far away

The Moon casting his form on the wall

Take a look behind you – there’s nobody there – he’s

Exited the room under cover of darkness

Manatee

#coloryourworld #cyw #manatee

Mammal that lives in the tropical seas

Aquatic in the way it moves and breathes

Natural resident of west Indian water

Animal that grazes sea floor as it please

two large flippers allow him to weave

enjoying the plants lying under his feet

Each a present perhaps from neptunes daughter

sumptuous food for an afternoon treat

Plenty of space down here to move

around the sunken sailing ships

collected on the sea floor.   Fishing boats, go

in search of different treasure, shoals of

fresh fish 🐟 swimming about

in the shipwrecks and coves of the ocean whilst

crabs and lobsters try to avoid fishermens traps

The Kitchen Floor

Animals, Humour, Life

in response to the prompt : Dirty

When washing a kitchen floor –

it’s important to do it right

Make sure your cleaning materials

are ready for use…

Make sure the water is hot enough

to get those sugary spots off the tiles…

Use plenty of detergent

to catch every bit of dust,gravy, fat or egg

And finally – if one of you has taken the dog for a walk,

remember to take a towel with you

Doggy paws are pretty – but not when someone has just cleaned the floor!

(Note to the reader – the same approach applies to little children – only don’t clean their paws unless its time for a meal!)
