Prompt:  “Hold that Blank.”


#4 Pad Challenge National Poetry Month

“Hold that……”
Hold that apple
Red like blood
Bright and shiny

Hold that bear
Brown and furry
Don’t let him go

Hold that cat
Small and fleet

Hold that dog
His Mom left him
By the stream
She had so many children
She didn’t know what to do

Hold that elephant
No easy task

Hold that falcon
Get him in sight
As he rises on the thermals

Hold that gorilla
And he will hold you back

Hold that turtle
A living box
In your hand

Hold the world
Tenderly as a lover
