Magic carpet and snow cupcakes


Tape measure coiled around fingers

Yarns laid out to choose from

Deep pile? Embroidery? Blanket stitch?




A sprinkling of pixie dust

My magic carpet is ready.


Snow capped shrubs

Make delicious cupcakes

for hungry snowmen.

Not been caught snacking yet.

Catherine Johnson, 2013.

  1. I saw the hedgehog, too. Then I realized from your clever poem that it was a bush and a snack for a snowman. Thanks for visiting my blog today and commenting. I am enjoying this Poetry Friday community of support.
