Day 23 of National Poetry Writing Month. Only seven days left *sniff*
Today’s prompt: draw a card, write a story, make a poem out of it. And of course I chose my stack of Pokemon cards. Not that I play the game, I just like the illustrations – and especially the shiny, glittery hologram cards which I used for this game. I got this Electivire card (okay, mine is slightly different – more glitter, less metal shine) and wrote a story about a lonely mountain monster (which I might post in full length in May). Here’s the poem:
The Mountain Creature
Far away mountain of snow and ice
Home to a creature of fur and strength
Taken for a bear, an alien longing for home
Killing for survival in foreign land.
No one to talk to, no one to love
Wandering the deserted snow
Piercing through its flesh
Lost its memory a long time ago
If you see it, better say you didn’t.
