NaPoWriMo 2014 Day Nineteen

Day Nineteen

And now for today’s (optional) prompt. This is a bit silly, but it’s Saturday. I recently got a large illustrated guide to sea shells. There are some pretty wild names for sea shells. Today I challenge you to take a look at the list of actual sea shell names below, and to use one or more of them to write a poem. Your poem doesn't have to be about sea shells at all — just inspired by one or more of the names. Peruvian Hat, Snout Otter Clam, Strawberry Top, Incised Moon, Sparse Dove, False Cup-and-Saucer, Leather Donax, Shuttlecock Volva, Striped Engina, Tricolor Niso, Triangular Nutmeg, Shoulderblade Sea Cat, Woody Canoebubble, Ghastly Miter, Heavy Bonnet, Tuberculate Emarginula, Lazarus Jewel Box, Unequal Bittersweet, Atlantic Turkey Wing. Happy writing!
Here's mine:

Tupelo to Toronto
Torso tattoo
Telephone trio
Tornado too

Torpedo tombolo
Tempo thoro
Tuxedo to tango

Tokyo tomato
Trago telco
Turbo techno
Toledo tondo

Tobacco thereto
Tremolo Tonto
Trigo typo

Two taco Tao

  2. Tesco...? I thought she sold 'em on the sea-shore...!
