It wasn’t the first time.
He’d caught lizards in the wild before.
Admiring the creature
before returning it to nature.
No, it wasn’t the first,
Nor will it be the last.
This Trifecta entry was inspired by my older son, who’s quite the nature child. I can’t tell you how many insects I’ve found in baggies, snap-top plastic dishes and water bottles. My mantra has become “ask first before opening.” 🙂 We’re fresh off a weekend camping trip, which provided the pictures for this poem. An added bonus? I doubt there are going to be many (any?) other lizard poems for the Trifecta weekend writing challenge, which is:
“Complete the following story in 33 words: ‘It wasn’t the first time.’ (The five words are not to be included in your 33 words)”
