Monica searched for an early memory and it is a sad one. I really like the way she has strong detail in the middle of the poem (fish) because it makes the feeling stronger. It is tough writing poems like this, but I think this one works really well.
It’s Monica again. I have it my goal to try and enter every poetry challenge this holidays!
Here’s one about an early memory, of when my cat died.
she went to sleep
a bundle of fur
and my family
then she closed her eyes
