“Punk-Rock Llama in Winter”

Doll created by Junsung Lee

a punk-rock llama lives in a black and white world
he doesn’t know the slowly changing paints of autumn
or the sweet, soft wash of spring flowers and new leaves
or even the bright, hot glow of a summer’s day
he only knows winter
stark and colorless
black trees painted with white snow
but even winter’s barren landscape reveals life
cream-hued creatures hidden in the snow
but not to the punk-rock llama

Written as a response to With Real Toads’ Sunday Mini-Challenge, which gave us images of dolls created by schoolchildren from which to base our writing.

  1. Hi Nia, Lovely to see your response to the Sunday Mini-Challenge on Real Toads. Please could we ask that you provide a link back to the original post on site?

    I thought this doll was very llama-like, and your use of punk-rock seems to give it a fantasy angle so suitable to the overall picture.
