I was driving home from a school visit in outstate Minnesota when this hay-filled truck passed by. Took a few pix without looking, and this one came out ok.?Here’s what?this picture?makes me think of:
1)?A little critter who was nibbling on hay and suddenly finds himself zooming down the highway
2) If the truck turned over and all the hay spilled, we could end up with a meadow instead of a highway. Well, not really. But you know, kind of.
3) If this truck parks at a truck stop and the driver goes in for lunch, a whole herd of cows could descend on the truck from surrounding farms and eat his whole cargo.
And here’s my poem first draft:
How I Nibble
Nibble my way.
in my shy way.
down the highway.
