Animal Acres

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #281

Words:  truth, recap, single, leap, feeble, seal, climb, preen, flee, siren, lean, cheat

Preening peacocks strut
single file for full effect.
Seals swim in circles, leaning
into pools that eddy and ripple
in response. A cautious climb
over high rocks brings polar
bears bursting into view.
Pandemonium in pond where
frogs play Leap. Cheetahs
sound a siren a mealtimes.
A home for fleas rests at far end
of land. With circus days
behind them, they are happily

This recap comes to you via
the weasels, who were turned
away at the door. Who knows
if Animal Acres exists, considering
the weasel’s penchant for poking
holes in the truth.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    I enjoyed your romp through animal acres. Weasels have a tendency to take it on the nose, poor things,
