Determined

A Poem by Rita L. Sev
"

Where there's a will...

"

The penguin looked up to the sky

he then caught the ostrich’s eye,

“I’m sick of confines;

let’s call up the airlines ~

who says that we’re not meant to fly?”

Author's Note

Rita L. Sev
A penguin popped into my head
"I want flight" is all that he said
But I don't have wings
Or aviation things
So I wrote him this poem instead

A fun read, Rita. A well crafted Limerick, short, concise and succinct. Lovely sense of humor. Very nice use of personification of the penguin and ostrich. Good word choice; nice use of dialogue. Well penned and and an enjoyable read. Write on!

Thank you, Rose
Can't have it all I suppose, incredibly elegant in water will just have to suffice.

Most enjoyable.

Just because they can't fly literally does not mean they are not as good as any other bird or that they can't try to fly when the y use their will. An awesome write...Thank you for sharing...:)
