February Writing Prompts: Day 19, “Apple Tree”

(my first attempt at a “poem” in many years).

Under the apple tree sat a squirrel,

a bunch of leaves clasped

in his tiny hands.

In the tall grass

a cat

was prowling, searching

for his next plaything.

On the fence a blue tit perched,

studying the berries in

next door’s garden.

But with a slam of the door,

the three of them scarpered.

Behind the curtain, a human

was watching.

Every day during February I am writing and posting a piece of creative writing inspired by a prompt. The prompts are being taken from here, although I may shuffle some of the days around if I fancy.
