Orangutan in the Rain -- a Flash poem, 55 words


Where o where can my friend be?
I left him under a bush
Bush so big, banana tree  

Out in the rain's unpleasant
I do hope he's staying dry
Not much sense has he, poor boy  

Now coming in out of rain
All hairs are wet, so is he
Fig leaf doesn't keep one dry

This is so sweet.. The little umbrella guy and your dog finding shadow works so well.

What a delightful song ... the tune where oh where has my little dog gone popped in my head (and is still there). Bastet

Your poem voices the look in the orangutan's face. Now I wonder if it, too, is thinking about your dog. ;-)
