Constant Companions -- a vision poem/a poem about seeing

Gregory K.

Everywhere I’ve gone today
I’ve seen the same three things:
A greenish toad, a yellow bee,
A kite with seven strings.

I saw them as I walked downstairs
Then at my breakfast table.
My Mom and Dad ignored them all.
I tried but wasn’t able.

Then I saw them in my school.
They came to all my classes.
Wait a second! Check this out!
They’re painted on my glasses.

I'm posting an original poem each day in April in celebration of National Poetry Month. Links to this and other poems here on GottaBook (and I post all year round, because poetry is NOT just for April!) are collected over on the right of the blog under the headline "The Poems".

Mysterious and funny. How do you think of these things!

I like the three items! :D

Speaking of surprises... you are no longer anonymous and pictureless! Now everyone can see what an award-winning (and tall) author looks like!

Thanks for the comments, both of y'all....
