A Frog Named Slime (Day 29 for the NaPoWriMo poetry challenge)

A Frog Named Slime

A frog named Slime covered in grime

Jumped in a pond to scrub himself clean,

 scrubbed so hard he washed off the green

“Look at me now! I can’t be seen,

looking too clean like a shriveled green bean.

“‘I look all shiny with all that sheen.

and won’t look like a frog if I’m not all green.”‘

So away he hopped to his puddle of grime

and happy was he the frog named Slime.

If I could catch a sunbeam

If I could catch a sunbeam

I’d keep it in a jar

 and save it for the times

when cloudy skies or rain would fall

 and threaten to spoil my plans that day.

I’d open up the jar

and watch my sunbeam spread its warmth,

its golden rays and magical waves sweep across the sky

and everyone would wonder,

“From where did the sunshine come”?

I would then reply, “It’s just a bit of magic

I kept in a jar.” 🙂
