Been playing all day by the lake
at the forest's edge
Darkening skies a signal to take
the trip home but wait

Pulling the tail would make it snarl
not a grin
Careful with it, pal
Or both would end up in the drink
(44 words)

For MLMM's Photo Challenge #103 and
Bjorn's at d'Verse's Quadrille-4 of not
exceeding 44 words and to include the
word -  grin

  1. A snarl is definitely not the right kind of grin, and yes, that close to the water, and it might just get you wet!

  2. Ha, hope no one ended up in the drink! That would wipe the GRIN off a person's face.

  3. Ending up in the drink would sure make any fun sink.

  4. Oh, how close a snarl IS to a grin...there's just something about a grin that's slightly sinister...Love this.

  5. I prefer the bared teeth of grins and smiles to that of snarls... and I also prefer to grin from drink than in the dring.

  9. A dog's smiles
    of connection
    winning grin
    of
    satisfaction
    cat sMiles
    warning
    of
    teeth
    to come..:)
