and then decide whether a poem is inspired by the ICAD or Scavenger Hunt photo theme
I always tell my students to read the instructions - it makes things so much more simpler so you'd think I might do the same but NO - in I go feet first and have looked at the ICAD posted by DaisyYellow
Sometimes I feel I am too cautious
Too may hesitations and not enough risks
So why do I find myself plunging then downwards
Without a parachute into the abyss?
Maybe there's a reason for taking things slowly
Careful deliberation and thinking things through?
So why don't I listen to this inner wisdom
Instead of keep ending up right in the p**!
Which just goes to show that all clouds have a silver lining :)
OK - Here is my official ICAD #1
When I was a child I loved the simple clear pictures of heraldic shields so a chevron meant this type of symbol to me and as I love dragons obviously one to hold the shield up. I have DRAWN them and then added a few doodles around the other side of the shield so all in all I feel I have fulfilled the brief.
So now I feel my "work" is done for today and I can spend my time catching up with reading some of the many blog posts you have been doing over the past few days after my hectic but very successful family get together this weekend :)
Let me know what you think. What might you have done for Chevron? Have you ever jumped the gun and how did things turn out? Have you ever wished you'd taken that risk but were too unsure at the time? Got any tips on how to make my poem better?
