Gooey red petals
cling to the wall—don’t you wish
those petals would fall?

  1. hehehe, that’s very creative to form the gum into flower. I love it. I think it would not fall it sticky it will hang on there if it’s dry, but looks like falling lol, just tell us when it fall.

  2. Nice poem to go along with your photo. Happy RT.

    Here’s mine.

  3. You made me smile with this one! 🙂 Yes, I do wish the petals would fall.

  5. Very creative. I wish I could come up with poem as you did with my post but I’m inspired right now.

  6. Truthfully, I hope they don’t, at least on me. 🙂

  12. Hi, thanks for visiting My Ruby Tuesday: Red Buses. 😉 And to your ruby, ooh yeah if I have that petal of gum in my wall, I would like that be fell and put it then in a trash. On the other hand, it’s pretty cute made so it’s not that a biggie deal. 🙂

  13. so many kinds of flowers out there 😉

  14. I thought I knew everything about Seattle — have somehow missed this (oh darn ;>) — had to look this one up. Good grief!

  18. Nicely done. I think I do wish they’d fall of the wall, but then again, it might be interesting to see how it weathered.
