5-7-5 Pet Poetry writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write a 5-7-5 poem on a loved one (animal)

While I was in college (years ago), my parents rescued a baby squirrel from the neighbor's dog. They kept it in my brother's old guinea pig cage, but, in the evenings, the thing would sit on the arm of my dad's recliner to eat its meal of peanut butter and watch television with him!! It lived about two years. Oh, and its name? Frisky. (very original, huh? lol!)
