Poetry Prompt #134

Zoo Lover’s Day

It’s National Zoo Lover’s Day. Imagine you’re an animal at the zoo. How would you describe the people looking at you? What would you think they love based on the people they’re with or what they’re wearing or eating? How would you—the animal—know if you’re right?

Write a poem from the point-of-view of a zoo animal. What does it see, think, feel? Who are its friends/enemies? When is dinner?

Set your timer for 7 minutes

Don’t think about it too much; just do it!

Start writing!
