Written for:  2023 Get Started Right Writing Challenge:  Day 2

"For the second day, write for at least 15 minutes. You can write fiction, poetry, nonfiction, or whatever strikes your fancy. And you don't have to finish whatever you start or even be happy with what you write. Just write."


If you get a new puppy
you will find it's nothing
like having a guppy 
for a pet.

Puppies have to learn
all those lessons
a toddler turns
into a tantrum.

Mistakes will be made,
each item appears as a toy
even if it's suede
like a shoe.

But, loyalty wins out,
affection and love
on which you can count
unconditionally.

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.
