A Lawn Chair Poem - Day 734: 5 Minute Freewrite: Thursday - Prompt: red tongue - Haste

in #justbecause3 years ago



Through the eyes of the night,
I sit and wonder at the frights
What would be, will always be
a death for you, a death for me.

When the day is done and gone,
I will miss that long red tongue.
When I came home, you were always there,
now all I do is sit and stare

A little crack was all it took.
You saw the cat a feral look.
With nose so strong the door to slide
Now I sit and want to hide.

I knew not what I had done,
matters not I had to run
Late I'd be if I did not leave
Now all I do is sit and grieve

Aw. That reads like it's about a doggie in the past. Poor doggie.

I have been fortunate in that, that awful scenario has never befallen me. Still I know how I would feel if it did.

I am very sorry.

Beautiful poem.

I did not lose a pet in that manner, I have lost one to old age, but I know how I would feel if it was my fault for not checking the door, especially those pesky sliders. I watched my dog nuzzle the back door open once, after that it was always make sure there was a stick in the slider groove.

@snook Trying the curation again for you. (Edit: it worked, just didn't leave the comment).

wow you are fast :D

thank you both.
