April is National Poetry Month, and I’ve joined a poetry challenge, which is to write a poem a day for thirty days using a different poetry form each day. If you would like to follow along (or join the challenge), this is where the poem prompts originate: Stephanie Says So.
Day 25 — Free Verse Poem
A Prickle of Porcupines
(An ABC Poem)
An army of Ants moving bits of bread.
A cloud of Bats flying overhead.
A murder of Crows pecking near sand.
A raft of Ducks floating on the pond.
A parade of Elephants lumbering by.
A charm of Finches sweeping the sky.
A tower of Giraffes munching hay.
A cackle of Hyenas circling their prey.
A swarm of Insects buzzing free.
A scold of Jays squawking in a tree.
A troop of Kangaroos looking for fun
A leap of Leopards basking in sun.
A stream of Minnows swimming along.
A watch of Nightingales singing a song.
A romp of Otters splashing downhill.
A prickle of Porcupines fanning their quills.
A covey of Quail settling down.
A bury of Rabbits under the ground.
A shiver of Sharks gathering enmasse.
An ambush of Tigers hiding in grass.
A blessing of Unicorns greet the day.
A nest of Vipers slither away.
A pack of Wolves eerily howl.
A yoke of OXen pulling a plow.
A herd of Yak snorting aloud.
A zeal of Zebras standing proud.
Of all the GROUPS there are to be.
I’m glad I live with my FAMILY.
