Challenge 65 Noses.

Holy Moses I see noses
Everywhere I go.
There's noses short and snubbed and tweaked
And long and lean on show.
There's piggy snouts, puppy noses, snotty schnozzles too-
And elephants noses, long as hoses
Posing at the zoo.
There's noses on faces
And noses in places
I did not expect them to be
And if I squint and look real hard
There's a nose in front of me!

Clare, I just spent some time browsing your whole blog ... I really love your style of journaling! I'm just getting into drawing and sketching, and your journals have inspired me. I'm going to journal more often, with illustrations LOL! Thanks so much for sharing!

I love your noses, and especially the layout with squares for each nose and color for the toucan. The poem is perfect for the challenge and although I can't see the name of the author, it reminds me of the American poet Shel Silverstein.
