Eli found Squirrel at the dog park.
Eli loves Squirrel.
Squirrel no longer squeaks. 
Eli removed Squirrel’s squeaker.
He couldn’t help himself.

Howdy, Campers and welcome to my 2012 Poem-A-Day Challenge!¬† Wowee–I can’t believe it’s here again!¬† This means I’ve been writing a poem a day since I took the challenge in April 2010.¬† Two. Whole. Years.¬† Over six hundred poems.

Ask any writer and I’ll bet 98% of us wonder if we deep-down really ARE writers.¬† Writing a poem a day has given me an amazing gift–I no longer doubt that I’m a writer.

This month, all the poems will be DOG POEMS, because the dog park is my new addiction.¬† So, let’s get on with the dog show–arf, arf!

ENORMOUSLY TOUCHING REUNION FROM A DOG'S POINT OF VIEW


ENORMOUSLY TOUCHING REUNION FROM A DOG’S POINT OF VIEW
by April Halprin Wayland

They went away.
They came back today.

Life is complete.
I’m going to sleep.

Poetry Prompt: We just got back from a few days at UC Berkeley.¬† The weather was perfect, we went on a dream hike with our son, I am swooning with happiness.¬† When we picked him up at our dogsitter’s, Eli seemed glad to see us.

It’s your turn. I have nothing to say to inspire you.¬† Write a funny poem, maybe?¬† See things from another point of view?¬† But I’ve said that before.¬† How about this: play, play, play!
