Shorts and Sillies

Okay, poems One and Two seem like cop-outs: they’re quick, they’re easy, and they’re not particularly inspired. But the idea isn’t to write necessarily good poetry – it’s just to get something on the page (and in this case, on the blog, as a way to convince myself I’m actually doing something here).

One’s a lune that reveals what my memory hones in on while meeting other dog people; Two is a take on a familiar verse with less favorable content.



It’s nice to meet you.

Got the dog –

What was your name again?



Noses are red,

toesies are blue;

the cold season’s come

to make – wait – ACHOO!



I promise the following works will be more worthwhile. Again, it’s the exercise that counts, right? I’ll upload the rest on Tuesday, when I’ve got some time off.

  1. Could it be … someone who’s even further behind than me?? There is hope! Great poems, short and sweet, and done and posted is the important part – they say the best poem is the one you have with you (or do they say that about cameras?) Keep up the good work šŸ™‚

    • Haha, quite far behind, indeed! But you’re right – there is always hope. And I haven’t heard that saying before, though I wager it might soon become a mantra for me ^-^ Thank you for your encouragement!
