Sharing Mr. Teddy 

Caught in baby’s neck creases, clinging to Grandpa’s cuff,
escaped from Mr. Teddy are these little bits of fluff.
These airborne little clumps of fuzz go anywhere they please.
They catch in Daddy’s nose hairs, causing him to sneeze.
They wind up in the pancakes–an artistic swirl of blue.
A few of them are tracked outside under Billy’s shoe.
When he climbs onto the school bus, they go along with him,
and everywhere that Mommy goes, to grocery store or gym,
a piece of Teddy comes along to be left behind
somewhere in the wide wide world, but he doesn’t mind.
He has so many fluffy parts that he can share a few.
And when you come to visit, you can take some home with you!!

The prompt today was fluff.

        I started looking around your site after that and did notice you had written one. After reading your poetry this last while, I can see you would write great books.

    I love this, Judy. Great response to the prompt – and adorable bear. I agree that your poem would make a wonderful children’s book – especially if they had to hunt to find the fluff in each picture.

          I know. I actually have an illustrator who has done two of my books. I’m just overwhelmed at the moment by three projects I need to follow through on. Children’s books are the hardest to get published. I just do my own. Not ideal, but don’t want to waste the time trying (and probably failing) to find a publisher.
