Recycling Red













Red
A sore thumb amid a green thumb
Hitchhikes through life unnoticed
Until a bright light picks him up
Plants him in a thriving garden
Filled with books to be shared and
Read

Laurie, this is so clever. I like the way you begin and end with the homonyms. I will have to take a gander at the prompt over at Real Toads.

I'm with Mary on the clever use of homonyms, but my fave line is the third: such an excellent image!

Wonderfully done, Laurie. I also like the homonyms, but also the sore thumb and green thumb.

I enjoyed the reading so much, I read it again. Good job. :)

Wonderful response I agree. I like it shortness and conciseness. And I truly loved the phone box as library.
