About

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues.
So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment.
Irreverent and irrelevant.
Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless.

  1. Nope, not rude today! I got a Challenge for you: pick a cliche and write any length story using it as a prompt! I have a list on my post (https://ficwriterwithablog.wordpress.com/2015/10/25/cliche-sunday-16/) or you can use your favorite over-used phrase. Let me know if you wanna go for it.

    • AnElephantCant thank you enough for this
      But he really cannot accept any awards
      He may be somewhat absurd
      But your kindly words
      Are for him a sufficiently heart-warming reward

      He has just two things to say here
      Congratulations on your success, sleepy kitty
      Can AnElephant ask
      Why you wear a mask
      When you are obviously quite stunningly pretty?

    Thanks for submitting some of your wonderful poetry to The Paperbook Collective this year my friend. It has been a whirlwind adventure and I thank you for being a part of it!

    AnElephantCant go with sayings
    For his twists aren’t just scenic,
    He incorporates the nouns
    People like on their balloons and socks.

    AnElephantCant deny that writing stuff
    Is not telling world a lie,
    Places, puns and crayons
    All make all believable.

    Well, I haven’t written anything in ages and certainly, never poems in English.
    I am happy to see you are still blogging, portraying witty attitude while jogging
    But I’m afraid I may not have the time to read what I missed in months
    For shall clumsys may be clumsys throughout

    The elephant is a graceful bird
    That hops from bough to bough
    It makes its nest in a rhubarb tree
    And whistles like a cow
    (The great poet Anon)

    • AnElephantCant climb a rhubarb tree
      That would surely be a mammoth mistake
      The sturdiest bough
      May bear the weight of a cow
      But under AnElephant’s bulk it might break

      AnElephant is everlastingly grateful to a gracious lady who visits him with a sweet rhyme.
      He sends hugs to her and thanks to her friend Anon (which seems to be quite a common name in poetic circles).
