Outside Small, Inside Mondo

Leah's prompt:

My response:

Once I bought a little home,
It didn’t suit me well.

I felt I’d sold my freedom to roam.
My cottage I did sell.

I need to find a house for shell,
Blue shutters upon my back.
Poppies in my window well,
Then nothing shall I lack.

Outside small,
Fat black cat,
Inside mondo,
Shoes on mat.

Until I find a home like that,
I’m good just renting a condo.

    1. I admit, that was probably the hardest thing I did all day ;)

  2. I love the feeling of wandering, of having tried something permanent and feeling tied down, of being content renting a condo until the perfect thing appears. Great job in so few lines!

    1. It was a fun prompt. I didn't think I'd have time to do it, but I couldn't get it out of my head all day.

  3. I love this. It made me smile. :)

    1. I love it when you come read my stuff! You make me smile

  4. I was smiling as soon as I saw the photo ans was chuckling as I read :-D
