A Love Story in 12 Words

A tug

A pull

A cry

But once in my arms


(I know this picture isn’t a smiling one but look at that adorable Popeye face yawning!)


This 12 word poem about a love story was inspired by the Go Dog Go Cafe Tuesday Writing Prompt. I know, a day late – it’s been that kind of week! These word limited poems are really quite challenging for me but in a satisfying type of way.

This crazy week has also limited my running – limited as in none! My last run was Sunday and I can tell by my energy and mood that I am long overdue for one. Hmmmm, maybe I can sneak in a short run like I’m sneaking in writing these short poems…..

  1. oh the poem really tugs at my heart, most beautiful 12 words, a real love story. i hope you get to sneak that run in. I have been bogged down with work and looks like it will increase in the next few weeks. I have switched to running home after work. totally understand the edginess and moodiness.
