My Husband Talks To Animals

MY HUSBAND TALKS TO ANIMALS My husband talks to animals. With squirrels he has conversations and blue jays often counsels. With squirrels he has conversations concerning the garden and digging; to Dudley the cat he makes observations. Concerning the garden and digging he likes neat, green and salient. It sounds funny but I’m not kidding! He likes neat, green and salient, my husband who talks to animals… At least he’s stopped talking to aliens. * Not a true terza rima, I call this style Fun With Tercets.

Wonderfully creative poem, Phil. I do not understand how there is not a poem form strictly for Tercets. My style of poetry is so suited for the three line form. I don't care, for now on ... I'm going to be posting some of my best Tercet poems. They can scold me all they want, but there should be a category for this type of poetry. Sorry to use your page as a vent box. Anywho ... marvelous poem. I talk to my dogs all the time. Love and peace to you.

Vent all you want my friend. I am NOT stuck on form as much as I am on the message; when I write I let the poem take the form it wants not the one I am trying to squeeze it into. Thanks for your always thoughtful expressions. Namaste.
