Poetry Prompt #140

Rescue Dogs

Have you ever rescued a dog or do you know a rescue dog? The ones I know are wonderful—and lucky. They have nice homes after starting out in less than perfect situations. They’re smart and happy and full of love.

An ode is short poem praising something. Today’s prompt is to write an ode praising a rescue dog. Think about what it looks like, acts like, anything that makes the dog special. You can write it to your dog friend if you want!

Set your timer for 7 minutes

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

Start writing!
