Creature Talk

Poetry sounds like snowflakes landing on spring flowers. I write, read and hear poems with my heart.

Creature Talk

A cool cat is purring
with a calming sound
Another cat is stirring
with a soaring bound

A game bird is singing
with a cheerful chirp
Another bird is winging
with a common stirp

A huge pig is grunting
with an oinking voice
Another pig is fronting
with a muddy choice

A fink rat is squealing
with a juicy truth
Another rat is wheeling
with a loyal sleuth

A fresh fish is dipping
with a tiny splash
Another fish is flipping
with a vital stash

A watch dog is barking
with a nasty threat
Another dog is marking
with a coddled pet
