Writer on a Horse
And a Dog

The world looks better from the back of a horse and the roads of life are easier with a good dog beside you.

2014 Kidlitosphere Progressive Poem

Happy Poetry Month!  Hope everyone enjoys my addition to the 2014 Progressive Poem, organized by Irene Latham.  Follow the progress of this poem by checking out the links below.   How cool is it to have 30 different people adding to one poem.

Sitting on a rock, airing out my feelings to the universe
Acting like a peacock, only making matters that much worse;
Should I trumpet like an elephant emoting to the moon,
Or just ignore the warnings written in the rune?
Those stars can’t seal my future; it’s not inscribed in stone.
The possibilities are endless! Who could have known? 

Gathering courage, spiral like an eagle after prey

Delicious word, "spiral" - and it just happens to go with our 2014 logo! Thanks, Pat!

Author Amok said...

The animal similes -- including your eagle -- work so well together.

LInda Baie said...

Now readied for action. Beautiful start to the next part.

Linda said...

Love the addition of the eagle!

Donna Smith said...

Where shall we spiral next? Love how this rhyme is being carried through and the -ings well placed.

Anastasia Suen said...

An eagle after prey! Great line!

Amy Ludwig VanDerwater said...

Oh, yes...the internal gathering. I, too, thought of the logo. Perfect movement!
