this is my first attempt of an abhanga//Indian poem 6/6/6/4 lines 2 and 3 rhyme.

The Penguins Christmas

By Lisa Ann Noe*Cat2*

This is an Abhanga poem

I went to the zoo this morning

While there I saw a penguin

It was really genuine

I rarely see such a site

It was wearing a Santa hat

Getting ready for Christmas I bet

A tree decorated near it set

I got too close and it lunged at me

I believe it was a brave little thing

It gave me quite the scare

Of that, I wasn’t aware

That they could be aggressive

I fell backwards on to the ground

I just can’t believe a bird gave me a scare

Now I look for birds everywhere

Because I am afraid of a penguin

Though my husband laughed at me

He said the bird could be my friend

And it could be a merry Christmas in the end

I think I’ll dream about my little friend tonight.

I’ll leave the zoo not being afraid of the lion or bear

But instead being scared of the tiny winter bird

I know it sounds absurd

But that is my final word.
