Tyson (A Tanka Poem, Hour Twenty One)


(Yes, he was a Boxer!)


My gentle giant,

Ninety pounds of fun and fur,

You kept me laughing.

Your silly smile soothed my soul.

You left pawprints on my heart.




(A tanka is a five line poem with the syllable count 5/7/5/7/7. This poem was inspired by the Hour 21 prompt to write about an animal.)
