One Single Impression: Avatar

My Avatar

Ugly and so scrawny
smirks at me from afar,
my avatar hates me;
I hate my avatar.

What did he do to me
that gets me so upset?
The others are pretty
yet here's my ugly pet.

And now I'm asking you
what is your opinion;
for you would he do?
I'd rather an onion.

Beauty running skin deep
but no curves here to love,
angles and bony knees.
My own is far above.

I think it is kind of cute. Looks like a beet with feet!

Content, discontent...whatever moves you, Jim. Great pic and clever poem.

Very clever! I really like the closing line to your poem...maybe it truly is far above.

Dear Beet-with-Feet--

All things are beautiful. It just takes the adjustment of our eyes!

Loved this--and your wit, as usual!

Yes, your avatar looks scrawny and ugly...but you could have chosen a more beautiful one, like mine!

Good morning to your avatar, and am happy to note you made a beautiful poem out of your scrawny one!

Too funny, Jim! I envy your avatar - matter of fact, mine just turned green.

Love the avatar- it's so YOU! Your rhyme was great- you are very creative! Missed your poem last week.

This was fun, Jim, but it also had a little under the skin (so-to-speak). I liked the "ugly pet" line.

Aw, I love that shade of pink and those adorable feet remind me of your adventurous walks.

kinship runs so deep.... a onion you say...

I like your avatar and your unfailing wit. An onion would do as well. Peel away the layers and you get to the sweetest part.

Jim, glad to see you back. I haven't seen a post for awhile. I hope things are all okay? I enjoyed your poem, it made me smile a lot. I like your avatar too!
