The Gnome

Gnome Rock

The Gnome

(A limerick)



I came upon a sight not far from home

A rock that looked just like a gnome

A chubby little face

In most unusual place

Could not discern – grimace from a groan.


Author Notes

I see a face with chubby cheeks and as bent hat looking out of this rock. Maybe I have too wild imagination. if you don’t see it, imagine the the long crack across the front as eyebrows. and that trapezoid impression as a mouth area with just the hint of lips inside. Just above a dot of a button nose. if you see that, then you should see the hair line and the toppled hat. Chubby cheeks. Almost a Santa. Is he squinting or frowning? Oh well, just having fun.

This poem is a limerick. It has the usual aabba rhyme scheme, and syllable count of 9/9/6/6/9.

This photograph was taken by the author. It is one of his Animated Stills. Animated stills are poems where inanimate objects take on human, animal, or spirit forms, traits, or articles. They are derived from Photographs I have taken, that have moved me to write a poem associated with it. When I write enough, I’ll publish a book of them.
