A Quicky for April's Writing Prompt - Elephant as Bird


Nothing wildly impressive here, but a test to see what I could come up with in 30 minutes or less. The photo that inspired this weird little ramble can be found here: Elephant Bird

Elephant as Bird
I wonder . . .
If an elephant could be a bird, would he ride the thermals?
Roost in the top of the baobab tree?
Entertain the waterhole with a song?
Let wide-eyed tourists snap his pic?
Or would this giant ele-bird buzz a pride of hunting lions?
Mob a cheetah from its perch?
Take a croc for an aerial spin?
And poop on nasty poachers’ heads?
I wonder . . .

Upcoming Event--Inland NW SCBWI

I've attended workshops with Bonny in the past at the now defunct PNW Children's Book Conference. I always came away with tons of useable information and a true appreciation for just how talented this lady is. Whether you are a beginning picture book writer or someone looking to hone skills, this is the place to be Saturday, April 23.  For more information, follow this link: Secret to Writing Picture Books  I hope to see you there.
A follow-up will be posted after the event.
