S-T-R-E-T-C-H

Poor little inchworm
with all his inchworm traits
crawled onto the yard stick
but he was only seven-eighths
“it’s because of your posture”
his mother did say,
“there’s a hump in your back
that just won’t go away”
“I forgot about my hump, ”
he said with a laugh
then he stretched himself out
to an inch and a half
--Charlie Parant

@lealady @linnypinny Thanks for your comments on the inchworm. I saw him by the pond today and had to get his photo. Luckily the Coolpix did a pretty good job on focus.

So glad you put all 3 pictures up, as I couldn't spot in the first one - he is so well camouflaged. A lovely capture and poem.

I'm in love with this! I love nothing more than to capture one of God's tiniest creatures, and an inchworm is one of my fav's. So triple fav!

Love this! I remember watching Sesame Street as a kid and singing along to "Inch Worm" - had no idea what an inch was!

@cejaanderson @gigiflower @bookthiefsfriend @sailingmusic @pittcj17 @888rachel @kareenking Thanks for your comments and favs on my inchworm collage and poem. I was so tickled when I found the poem because it made me chuckle and it fit the pictures so well. LyLeigh, I laughed at your comment. We Americans often think that the whole world operates on the same standard that we do, when in reality we should make that long resisted switch to metric. But it's hard to think of an inchworm as a 2-1/2 cm worm. What we lack in logic we make up for in lyric.
