Butterflies on my Mind - TAW challenge

She felt a buzzing in her ears.
Her thoughts felt a little fluttery
but she knew she had never looked
so wonderful!

The challenge at Take a Word this week
was Butterfly
so this is what I came up with.

Beautiful, fluttering butterflies!

Shoo Fish don't bother me

If fish were meant to fly, 
the composition of air would be
very different indeed.

It might be easier for them to chat.
At least, if they had human style faces
like our green friends in
toadstool land.

I bet they could even tell us
which way Alice went!

Also, have you believed three impossible things yet today?  
Your breakfast is getting cold!

Play 42 again, Sam Kitty - 3Muses Challenge

On certain nights
when the moon is right
and the dog cowers under the bed,
Cellist kitty emerges from the dark
and seizes the musical spark
playing the 42 she had read.

The Three Muses challenge this week was "Numbers".
I haven't read the book or seen the movie 
but my daughter likes to quote the notion that
"42" is the answer to life, the universe and everything
so it seemed an appropriate thing for my Cellist Kitty to play
(if we willingly accept that musical notes sound like numbers).

Fly Fish Fly

I was so pleased with my surreal flying fish landscape
that I was inspired to make a couple more.

Here is one.  

For some reason, it makes me think of strange alien lifeforms
descending eerily from the sky.
