Roxana Evans was one of the ladies that joined me for the Lunch & Learn. She is such a fun and interesting lady! She is also letting me share one of the poems that she wrote from our writing time with Heather Marshall. I love this, I bet you will too!
From Roxana: I sat through the writer’s workshop where Heather had us write about something from our childhood. Somehow this little monkey came back to memory as we wrote whatever came to mind in the space of a couple minutes. Enjoy the strange poem that came forth from my Brazilian childhood!
Spiteful hateful monkeys..
Cute and cuddly monkeys…
Brown and faithful following monkeys.
My pet monkeys…
They line up and follow the man down the boardwalk as they think about their food.
I take them in my baby doll stroller and ask them not to be rude.
I make them wear a bonnet.. they poop all over my toys.
They love to pick at my brother and get stuff out of their nose.
Monkeys….Silly Monkeys.. Little ones and big…
I love my silly monkeys…even now when I am big.
It’s just awesome when something like this pops out from a writing prompt. I’m so glad Roxana shared her poem with us. I don’t have monkeys from my childhood, do you? If you have something you would like to share from our time together please do!
Here are a few more shots of some of my lovely guests!
I’m so happy they came!
We also had a second door prize, and Angela went home with a bag full of special goodies. Her daughter made her hat, isn’t it cute? Angela says she is the world’s tallest munchkin!
