Short Story Slam Week 6

Week 6 Prompt:


To the puppy,

Running fast and free makes him happy;

To the elephant,

Moving forward one step at a time is important;

“Let’s play hide and seek.”

Suggests the puppy,

Too bad the elephant could not win

Because he is too big to be unseen;

“Let’s swim cross the creek.”

Asks the elephant,

So sad that the puppy can not swim,

and he instantly begin to scream…

They are made different,

It’s impossible for them both to be excellent…

To keep each other’s company,

They must learn how to respect each other beautifully.

  1. They are different as different as can be,
    They’re not the same size as we can see,
    But they can be alike regarding the heart,
    They both can be kind right from the start.

    They may play different games,
    But they can be friends just the same.

    Ji, loved your poem. If only adults were as smart as kids and treated everyone equal.

  3. Each one is unique and special in his own way ~ just like us human beings , each and every one of us is unique and has something different to offer !!

  4. I have to pause and imagine the beauty of it all. Yes, even with diversity living could be lovely — respect is the key. Peace and blessings to everyone 🙂

  5. Very powerful narrative here, great moral on diversity, we are all different, yet can all do different things better than others, work together and we’ll achieve so much more than when we are alone. Great piece.

  6. This is a pretty excellent children’s poem with a message that could be explored and the children should inherently take on. I really hope you get some recognition for your writing as this could easily be in a children’s poetry book with large, bright cartoony pictures.
