Frenemies Forever

My kookaburra friend still whispers in my ear sometimes and sometimes slaps me aside the head
when I least expect to expect it. Wtf are you thinking Anna? Don't you know I'm still paying attention
this side of a shaman's dream?

Always great to read you dear Anna.
"Kookaburra friend" I like this.


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

that Jess would have thought this quite funny. I know he didn't believe in an after-life, but I think that he was wrong.
I do believe that so long as someone remembers, he will live! Nicely done. ~ Geez.

Comments and critique are vital to this site!
Even if you just say: I liked this story or your spelling
of a word is wrong, take the time to write a line or two
and comment. Your fellow poets will thank you!

Nicely done! Like the "least expect to expect it" line. Grief is like that, coming for visits unexpectedly, and often in waves.

It seems even the kookaburras cried
in their silent grief
as if their only friend had died
and they had no relief
on the day that the elf died

and he slapped me upside the head many times because I needed it.
Superb Anna!

If you take the time to read a poem then take the time to let the author know you were there. Study it and form an opinion as well, even if it means going back to it more than once. That is basic critique, what Neopoet is all about.
