Day 14 of ‪#‎NaPoWriMo‬ poem and quick watercolor demo sketch


Bumblings been bouncing around in my head for a few days. Hence for day 14 of ‪#‎NaPoWriMo‬ I’m sharing a bumbling poem, just written, and quick watercolor demo sketch I created for a workshop I did at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum last fall.

Bumbling Bear and Bees
Big brown bear, 
bumbled out of his lair,
bumping into a pair of busy bees.
Buzzing bees bee lined for that big brown bear,
Owwww! bellowed bear, beware
I’ll be back…
