It’s been a long time since I poeticized an item from our local weekly newspaper’s call-in line. This one is a bit stream-of-consciousness, but heartfelt and very sweet. I hope I know this person.
Respect For Animals
I just love the little creatures that God has made for us on this Earth. The cats and the dogs and the birds, I just love all the little animals. Rabbits and everything. But there's one thing I hate. I hate when people are so rude that they shoot those loud sonic fireworks off around the poor little animals and scare them half to death. I know one lady that said her dog had trauma for about two weeks after this. The poor little dog shook and quivered and shook and quivered. I'm going to ask the people please be more respectful around the little animals ... Please show some respect for the older people that's got heart problems and the little animals.
My nails this week, in honor of the return of the raccoon:
All polishes are Maniology: base gray is Grey Joy, black is Straight Up Black, leaves are Lilypad, blueberries are Shibori. The matte topcoat is not Maniology; it’s Cuticula Sugar Coated Cloud Cover, the best matte top coat I’ve ever tried.
All plates are Maniology: The raccoon face is an ornament from Christmas plate M078, the body is from bee plate CYO X Maniology M093, the paw prints are from cat plate Maniology X MRSWHITE8907 M006, the leaves are from M164, and the berries are a dot pattern from Classic Beauty BM-XL355. I stamped the vines, then the berries, then the vines again.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about little animals and older people.
