Day 15! Yahoo! Can’t believe it! 15 poems! Hooray! This challenge is great! Yippee! Today O is for Onomatopoeia! Rena Traxel is giving us all kinds of great poetry tools over at her blog On The Way To Somewhere. The guest for this challenge is Kari-Lynn Winters. Kari-Lynn uses onomatopoeia in her book, On My Walk, which I want to read ASAP. Our challenge is to write a poem about the things we see and hear on our walk today. Well, it’s time for true confession. I really didn’t see these things in my poem on my walk! I was “walking” through some websites with onomatopoeia and the idea came to me. Then I “ran” over to Google images and found a couple to fit my poem! Ah! Come on…I exercised my brain.
Just a peek.

I love Tom and Jerry! I love your poem too! It could be a song (at least, I was singing it)!
A song, huh? I never thought of that. I’ll have to try a tune or two.
i used to watch lots of tom and jerry when I was young….this would make a great board book!
I have never thought about writing board books. I have another manuscript that has succinct rhyme like this…maybe it could be a board book, too. I’ll have to look into that. Thanks for stopping by.
Penny, this poem is just as visual as the cartoon! Your word pairings are so hilariously succinct! I love that your poem also let mousey win! Such a good job, Penny.
Yeah…the mouse needs to have a victory every now and then 🙂
Thanks, Rena! You provide the challenges that get me going.
So good Penny! I could see the whole story unfold–amazing considering the two word phrasing! Great job! 🙂 (Only day 15??????) 🙂
Thanks, Natalie. You knocked it out of the park today when you posted that nature poem!
Terrific!! Now I’m even more intimidated!!
I love Tom and Jerry, this is fabulous onomatopoeia!
Thank you, Catherine! You are so encouraging 🙂
Tom and Jerry are perfect for this 🙂 Love your onomatopoetic poem!
I know…I found them when I searched “cat in mousetrap”. Couldn’t believe how lucky I was with the images 🙂
Haha. I use to love Tom and Jerry! I loved your use of sound. I love “Howling scowl/feline scowl/mouse giggle/tummy jiggle” brings back memories of watching cartoons.
