a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Trash To Treasure For Poetry Jam

Someone threw 
This tub away
I became it's foster parent
Invited it to stay

First it watered horses
As they walked by
The horses left
The tub stayed high and dry

Sad to see the tub
Sitting all alone
Then came Bonnie
A water lover to the bone

The lilies weren't happy
Being chewed and torn
Because of busy Bonnie
A new idea was born
So this poor discarded tub
With no purpose at all
Became the lily reserve
And a unique water fall

Love the way your poem told such a fun story. Great way to use the old bath. Gahhh, she is getting so big! I had to laugh at the way she is sitting in the water looking at you as if to say 'what??'

Excellent, the regeneration of a simple tub, bringing life and newness. Great poem.

Bonnie would no doubt at all feel right at home in my back yard - her and Jack would play all day in Jack's backyard pool, although its not as lovely as yours, with the waterfall n all - plus all the dragging of rocks and placing them just so-so. I would love to have a waterfall n tub like this - might even get in it myself. he,he Have a wonderful Sunday and hugz to Marcy, n Family lol

Your garden is amazing, Gail. And Bonnie seems quite happy with the arrangement as well!

Have a blessed day, all. ♥

I like this. Both the story and the way you wrote it made me smile. I'm glad this tub had a happy ending and could be useful again!
