I have teamed up again with the talented Sandra (or Daffy as I like to call her), from Wild Daffodil to bring you another bit of silliness this Saturday. Sandra is incredibly artistic and creative, and I just love the images she has created out of shells, stones and flowers.
One of the nicest things about Sandra’s blog is that you never know what she is going to get up to next, from beach art to knitted wigs, and mandalas to making spirals in her garden.
We haven’t done a Silly Saturday for a while, but I couldn’t resist joining in when Daffy showed me her latest brilliant creation. Birdy McBirdFace.
Birdy had such a handsome face
In flight, he was elegance and grace
As he rested on the beach
He heard a loud screech
Sid Seagull flicked sand in his face.
Sid was loud and uncouth
And strutted with the arrogance of youth
Swinging his hips
And gorging on chips
He teased Birdy for being long in the tooth!
Birdy challenged Sid to a race
The seagull laughed in his face
With my youth and my size
I’ll easily take first prize
But his boasting was sadly misplaced!
As Birdy flew high in the sky
Sid regretted pecking that meat pie
With all the chips and the bread
He felt as heavy as lead
He couldn’t leave the ground if he tried!
Birdy was not one to boast
He won doing what he loved most
Flying along with the breeze
Above the crystal blue seas
He loved his life on the coast.
Aw! A great comeback sis!!
Thanks so much sis. I hate being away but have not been feeling up to creating much lately. I do hope I can get the mojo back soon. 🙂
Your mojo will get back soon sis 😍
Oh, I do hope so Sis. x
We both mislaid our Silly Saturday mojo for a while didn’t we Eddie! Who knows when it will turn up again but it was such fun joining forces for this one. I just love where our flights of fancy take us! 😉
Yes it is always fun joining up with you Daffy, and your creativity seems to spark mine! 🙂 x
Let’s hope the Muse returns again soon. ❤
I do hope so too 🙂

Hi Robbie. thanks so much, it is lovely to see you here. I have been pretty busy and my mojo got a little lost with everything. I do hope to be back more regularly 🙂
lovely and very nicely done; good to see the muse is there. Just a thought. was a very last line; All the other stanza were five lines whereas the last was four.
Hi Geoff, how lovely to see you here. Thanks so much for pointing that out as I hadn’t realised I left the last line off!!! I have sorted it now 🙂

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
