Walking Archives

Cute little pebbles and unique leaves,
Such a delight on nature walks,
Some people pick the fallen twigs,
For unique rocks, many have a thing.

I happen to have a different pick,
Something different than rocks and twigs.
I pick the lonely living beings,
Like cute kittens and little pups.

Once I found a little mousey,
Such a frail little poisoned being.
I wrapped him in a pink hanky,
Held him as death came for him.

Then I found three little kittens,
Took them home, fed them milk,
Their mommy came & claimed them later,
Wish they stayed with me longer.

Later I found a scared little pup,
Fed him biscuits, took him home.
But, my Bruno got territorial.
So, I had to give him up.  

Yet again, I found another pup,
Fed him cookies, carried him around.
I didnโ€™t dare take him home,
Just left him warm, somewhere safe.

Here goes my walking archives,
No collection to show,
Just a few memories,
With lovely little beings.

In loving memory of, Jerry the mouse, Tom, Jacquen & Angel, the cats, Max & Blackie, the pups.

For NaPoWriMo Day 19, walking archives.

    A beautiful soliloquy, round in its form and flow, dripped with the intimacy of knowing and loss, and evocative and heartwarmingly genuine. When you speak form the heart, little one, your words are amazing! Stay well and blessed. โค
