Animal Affair

Written for:  Sunday Muse #144

Upon emerging from
the ark, the animals
were parched.  Two
by two they met
at a fresh water
pool.  Tigers,
pandas, giraffes,
zebras, and more.
Slurping, neighing,
and hooting sounds
echoed 'round.  It
was an astronomic
animal affair, where
all were welcome,
and thirsts 
were quenched. 

About purplepeninportland

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.

    Good thoughts, Sara, to relate it to Noah’s Ark. Survival first before going for each other as the next meal!



  7. Truedessa says:

    All are welcome but, the lingering thought is for how long? If only there was satisfaction after the drink. Maybe, some day!

    It was, indeed, the first miracle … and may there be many more. What a beautiful write.
