For today’s prompt, write a suffering poem. A person or animal in the poem could be suffering. The poem itself could be suffering.

Taos Mountain

 Loyal Companion

A low moan in the distance

Becomes a wail

Then a howl

Hard to hear

Mixes with the wind

Is it injury or death

Does it matter

Sometimes it is in the land

Over time

Suffering becomes memory

Shapes who we are

A universal experience

A loyal companion
