Golda: Woof!

This poem is a part of the poetic ‘scavenger hunt’ designed by @murisopsis from A Different Perspective. This time the theme is Names, as in poetic forms that feature a name (e.g. one of the prompts is to write a poem in the form of “Amandas Pinch” — a form I’ve personally never heard of before). There are thirteen prompts in total so this is more manageable then a daily commitment challenge. Check out all the prompts and the way it works here and join in if your up for some poetic puzzling. Enjoy!

Prompt 10

Write a Golda poem or incorporate the words related to gold into a poem.

A Different Perspective

The Golda is a poem composed of 12 lines where the 6th and 12th line rhyme and has syllable count 2/2/4/1/4/2a/2/1/2/4/4/2a. Full rules here.


Just one
Nip by a sharp
Pup has turned me

Full of rabies
I woof!

Inspired by my little adventure with a homeless puppy this past weekend which sent me to the dog bite clinic (aside from feeling like a pin cushion from all the injections, I’m fine).

Be well,

      Haha. I wholly concur with you on the wishing this one was fictional.
