Animal: WEDNESDAY WRITING PROMPT LINKUP – 75 WORDS

This is new prompt for me, so I am super excited to be involved. It is written for Grammy’s Grid: https://grammysgrid.com/wednesday-writing-prompt-linkup-animal-75-words/

When I was little

When I was little 
I imagined my animals 
could understand my words  
and wash away my tears. 

When I was a little older 
I imagined I was little 
and there were animals 
who could understand my words  
and wash away my tears.  

Now as an adult 
I realize even when I was older 
and remembered being little 
it was okay 
to imagine there were animals 
who could understand my words  
and wash away my tears.

  1. WOW, I love this!! I still have the floppy bear I purchased when I got divorced (1978), “Manhattan” never failed to comfort with wise words 🙂

      1. Exactly! And last year I got Manhattan a little friend–cute squishy koala bear I named Pax…because he’s also wise and peaceful 🙂 At Christmas I added a small hedgehog–cutest thing ever, very quiet, sleeps a lot!! 🙂 🙂 Take care of YOU! ❤

  3. This is the fabulous. I love it so much. I just read it out loud to my Little Miss Eight, and she smiled the biggest smile. She insists that she can talk to animals and they talk back. This has brightened our day! Thank you 🙂

    1. Thank you! I had a few friends growing up. I may still have one or two, in need of serious love, but still with me. I always thought of them as companions. When my daughter was younger you could always find her in her room with all of her favorite animals lined up for school! She would have them do math and reading! It was super cute. She would quickly do all the work so she could correct it for them!!! I miss them when they are little. I am glad my writing touched your daughter.
