The Poems - February 27, 2009



The uber busy Laura Salas, aka laurasalas is battling the elements and off on a round of school visits. (Lucky schools.) She asked if I would like to host 15 words or less photopoetry this week and I said sure! This is no pressure, lots of fun. If you're not familiar with it, you can read the guidelines here.

What does this make you think of? A dog fight waiting to happen? Making friends? Staying as far away as possible? Your allergies?

If you'd like to play, just choose any topic this image makes come to your mind and write a quick 15 Words or Less poem. Your poem doesn't have to describe this photo. The picture is just a jumping-off point. If you've never played before, check out the guidelines in the sidebar. Leave your poem in a comment and I'll include it in my post of poems tomorrow. Have fun with it!  

Here are yesterday's poems:

PEANUT BUTTER
by C Federoff

Stuck.
To my nose.
To my lips.
To the roof of my mouth.
Peanut Butter.

WHEN DOGS MEET

Nose to nose
to nose
quivering
whining
one by one
by one
tails
wag.

--Diane Mayr

 


give the ball
to the little guy
no one will suspect
the halfback sneak

--halfmoon_mollie

 


First one
to the rotting, stinking bone
wins.

Huh! Two! Three!

GO!

--Becky Levine

 

Winnie the poohi
A circle of three,
Air, earth and sea;
Strength, justice and spirit
Love, hope and dreams..
The holy trinity

--mylifeinrhymingwords.blogspot.com

 


Synchronizing smells
Meeting of minds
Evolving telepathy
Life in community
We can all get along

--vlpalmquist

 


Trio of trouble
We'll always be
Friends times three,
You, her, me.
Let's go shopping, Whee!

Cindyb

 

Old Friends Meet
After
A
long
absence
Introductions are needed
but
someone
is facing
the wrong
Way

-- hulabunny

 


Staring contest
You're right in front of me
Gazing, contemplating, scrutinizing
But you can't really see me

-- smokingtoaster

 


A SHORT TAIL
Barking stories.
Territories.
Dogs are staring.
Nostrils flaring.
Lots of sniffing.
No more tiffing.
Friends in making.
Tails are shaking.

-- by Kelly Polark

 

You may be big
I may be small
But our noses
Feel just
the
Same

-- Jen Lehmann

 

Spun the bottle
Twice,
Now there's three
Nose to nose
Kisses.

-- Marianne H. Nielsen





Move Over

You’re in my way.
Why don’t you move?
Can you not see?
I’m ignoring you.

-- Judy
 



Detente is over

Diplomacy unraveled
Tried sniffing butts
Now the only solution left
Is war between the mutts

Rick Wainright
 
There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

Triangle of browns and gold;
a quick sniff before
these puppies dash
for the bone.

This never happens to me, but the poem came instantly:

Now a grown-up
I wish
that making new friends
was as easy
as touching noses.

I missed this as it came after I got back from my conference.

I love this as making friends is very difficult for me and dogs, doggone them, make it look so easy.

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
