Hello again folks.
Here we are at Day 3 of NaPoWriMo / National Poetry Writing Month.
I thought tonight that I would write something dear to my heart, so I have gone with the theme of animals.
For Day 3 of NaPoWriMo, the prompt challenge is to write something that involves a story or action that unfolds over an appreciable length of time. Focus on imagery, or sound, or emotional content (or all three!)
So here is my poem, thank you for reading and feel free to share with me your favourite stories/things about your own pets in the comments, I would sincerely love to read about them 🙂
“Growing Old With Pets” by David Ellis
Adopt a pet
Animals big or small
They are always there for you
Feel loved and give yourself purpose
Choose for them wild, silly names
Cuddle for days, share warmth, make them family
Fill your phone with pictures of their presence
They are blessings from the heavens
Reducing stress and loneliness with their sweetness
Walk, run, play or stay in and read them stories
Let them know all your secrets, hopes and dreams
They never judge, the perfect companion
Friends and beautiful memories for life
The best gift you could ever have when it is cold at night
Finding joy in the simplest of things
Their smiles, their antics, their kisses
Time stops when they are around
And life begins
