Know this well. It’s a horrid transformation. 🙂

The Elfchen never appealed to me but this little verse is very enticing… Where did I put that straw?? You would think that after 6+ decades of experience I would know how to avoid brain freeze! Gets me every time!
it’s not one of my favorites… but I do like how it allows for words, rather than syllables or letters… it lets me be more precise with my intending meanings…
Another reason for me to give it a try…
Indeed! Slurp. Slurp. There goes my grey matter, right up the old straw. How do we take away its straw? 🖖
not sure… and what if it has more of ’em in its pockets?! 🧟
It has an endless supply

OMG!! this (with the image especially 😂) is so cute… and true. I love it. (I think my own Elfchen just let out a huge burp… ah, sweet relief for it… and thus for me. 🙏😌 ;))
Haha,I agree with you here….and slurping through a straw?Lol that’s too much fun to leave out!
And yeah, the poem was very good!
Btw here’s my next freeverse, https://theforgersoffantasy.art.blog/2021/08/30/love/
I like your insight there – how love cools hatred & also melts hearts… it actually made me start thinking that love could also fuel hatred (via jealousy, for example)… there are a lot of directions to take your idea!
yeah – not sure how that came to me… I was just thinking about how annoying and distracting it is, and that’s the image that came to mind!
