Flash Fiction for the Aspiring Writer: Poem – Petrarchan Sonnet “Mister You Are Lucky” #flashfiction #poetry #amwriting 


Thanks to Priceless Joy for hosting FFftAW each week.

The Storyteller’s Abode (Louise)

——–

Mister, you are lucky to walk your dog, 

To have his companionship whether, 

His attentions are unwanted or whether, 

You need him to cuddle with while you blog. 

——

Mister you’re lucky, your wife likes your dog, 

That he loves her and protects her whether, 

She’s mad he’s eating gross things, or there’s fur —

Needing to be vacuumed all around home, sob! 

——

I, a boy, had a dog; she got too sick, 

Vets tried to save her; she died with a lick. 

Pets are as humans, we don’t know how long, 

We’ll be here to love, bring cheer, give kisses.

When this boy, wants to pet your dog, let him. 

Reminds him of his dog, brings joy too share.

      Thanks PJ. I do miss her. Though I pictured this more as a boy who lost his dog and goes to play in the park.

        No you didn’t at all. I wasn’t clear, not defining my character from myself. Enjoy your weekend PJ 🙂

      It’s not my loss but thank you. I picture it as a little boy who comes to play oil the park. Thanks though.

    When I first finished reading, I thought, what a fetching poem. Then realized what a terrible pun that was. (Note I kept it, though, in my response.) The boy’s voice you create in and as the narrative is both direct and endearing. For me, even simply the first line of each stanza makes its own story and a poem (of three lines). Such fine creating, Amanda.
