Written for:  Poets and Storytellers United
Weekly Scribblings #72:  unusual, uncommon, uncanny
(posted by Magaly)

"At this moment, for our 73rd Weekly Scribblings, I just wish to invite you to write poetry or prose which includes one (or all three) of the following words: unusual, uncommon, uncanny. You are welcomed to choose your own topic, genre, form… But your contribution must include at least one of the words."

He was an uncommon
breed of dog.  Looking
like an upside-down mop
made him appear quite
unusual.  With a uncanny
sense, I knew he would
win the contest.

    My first thought was a little mutt like my brother found once, like a Maltese poodle, which he named Moppet! Then, “a breed” and a contest. A puli!
    Cute poem. I love dogs. No mops for me though, nothing that needs grooming again.


  4. I can see him in my head. And, of course, he would win. Uncanny is cool.
