Doodlewash Doodles – July, Week 4

Artwork-Faber-Castell Watercolor in a Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbook

I decided to do all the remaining prompts for the month on this page – 10 of them! To be truthful, the prompts just weren’t bringing any images to mind, but I could see a story, so I just painted a couple of images and let the words do the rest.

The Rhino’s Tear – I butchered the words to a favorite song. It will never go down as one of history’s greatest, but hey! I got in all the words and they almost work to the music.

Yesterday … an abundance of rhinos were around to play,

now most of them have gone away

a few alone are left today

if only we could d0-over yesterday.

Why they had to go, I hate to say

their horns so sharp were torn away

so valuable but gone away.

I sup-pose the shine of tears is complementary.

Doodlewash Prompts:

  • 22 valuable
    23 alone
    24 abundance
