dVerse~Poets Pub Three Pitiful Poems

Playing with the poets
Three poems from three different shelves
Silence In The Snowy Fields
A Long Way Down
The Witch In Every Woman
Turning Life Into Fiction
The Diggingest Dog
Inside Outside Upside Down
No More Dead Dogs
#1 Worst Class Trip Ever
Trapped At The Bottom Of The Sea
Titantic Crossing

And believe me
Even this poor attempt 
Was very difficult.

Nice! I used to be a reading teacher, so I have lots of children's books. I thought about using those and now might just have to go back and write another one.

Lots of dark humour here - my favourite kind ... smiles. And that would have been the #1 worst class trip ever!

Liked the way you showed the images in stanzas too.
Very versatile phrasing.

I can understand the difficulty in trying to find meaning within the constrains of book titles, but here you've managed to find a subtle, dark humor to animate all of these brief aphoristic compositions. Well done.
