The poetry prompt for day four of Writing 201 is “Animal.”
The form is “Concrete Poetry.”
The device is “Enjambment.”
I’ve been sick with a cold and fever this week and have spent a lot of time curled up on the couch with my dog, so she was the first animal that came to mind for today’s prompt.
Click on the images to see them larger.
Puppy paws playfully pounce,
tossing toys this way and that.
Tail in the air,
snout in a rout,
joyfully sniffing about.
Pausing to sleep in a streak of sunshine.
Dreaming sweet dreams of the next escapade.
ready to go.
Running and racing then
s l o w.
Eyes seek me out.
my steadfast canine companion.
