If I Were An Animal, a Monthly Poetry Group Post


It's time for the Monthly Poetry Group, hosted by Karen at Baking in a Tornado.  Participants write a poem about a topic one of us chose.  This month, i chose If I Were An Animal.  Be sure to go check out all the poems.

If i were an animal,

it would not easy be

to make a choice of only one

'cause there's so much to me.

It might be nice to be a cat

since i love them so,

they love warmth and comfort,

and so do i, you know.

It might be nice to be a dog,

a family friendly pet,

although as an introvert,

it's likely not my best bet.

It might be nice to be a bird

and soar across the skies,

but as much as i like them,

that's not where my heart lies.

A dolphin in the sea is great,

or bigger, like a whale,

to give the watchers joy

as near me they might sail.

But if i could retire from work,

i would not be wroth

to wake one day and find myself

turned into a sloth!

  1. We're heading into a hectic time of year, we all need to slow down a bit and channel our inner sloth.
