Wednesdays with Peggy
Point of View and Place
Greetings fellow Toads. Peggy in Southern California here. This time I have a very toady prompt for us all. And I hope to see many of you giving it a try.
Point of view and place are both important elements of poetry and story telling. This time take the point of view of an animal -- lets stretch a bit and make it NOT a dog or a cat. You can even choose an imaginary or mythical animal.
Take this animal to a place you are not in every day. It can be a real place or an imaginary place at any time past, present or future. Tell us about this place through the eyes, ears, nose, skin (or whatever) of your animal.
There is a lot of this in children's literature, if you want inspiration. You can even take and animal from Dr. Seuss to a place of your choosing.
So choose an animal, take it someplace--and write!
I hope it will be fun. I look forward to seeing what you all write. Link it with Mr. Linky below and then visit the other Toads and see what they have linked.

I enjoyed it thoroughly. Thanks Peggy:)
Ah very cool! I started an animal poem and never finished. I will finish it or start new.
Well, I have the feeling, I'll just let my Millie goat answer today's prompt. She is an accomplished blogger, you know.
I am fond of turtles, but in this poem I choose we hairless apes for the role of spirit animal.
Hello from muggy Philadelphia where I'm moving slowly this morning. I've taken a worm's eye view here.
I thought I had linked this last night. I know I posted it about 1:00 am, but I didn't link it to Toads. Well, here it is.
Behind on Monday Open Link Night, but hope to catch up with that and this later tonight!
Fun, fun, fun. Thanks for the prompt.
A great prompt Peggy!!
Such a very nice idea, Peggy. It was an enjoyable write for me.
But when I was browsing my picture file for an animal (I was looking for a black sheep, the "Baa baa, have you any..." kind) when I found this Fine Lady. I hope you don't mind.
I love this prompt! Mr. Linky is not a fan of mine, so you can find me at:
Great prompt! Fun write. Thanks Peggy
Fun idea Peggy! I have a cool idea~
Thank you :D
Thanks to this prompt, I've finished a poem I started weeks ago! :)
HI Toads and friends. Thanks for all the poem responses. I am late reading here -- busy day for some reason though it is hard to say exactly what I did. We were away most of last week. Anyway, I am off to read now. Thanks!
Thank you Peggy ~ My post will be up in the morning ~
Thanks for the idea!
Kay I think you might have put up the wrong link--took me to a news article. Don't know if you will see this. Anyway thank you all for your postings--so many points of view!! Now to write my own response!!
So fun I want to write another one!
I'm very late to the party. I've not been well this week, and this was a busy work week, with a lot of deadlines. I managed to read several poems, but not leave comments on all of them.
