One single impression: Stairways

[large picture]

Stairway Forbidden

Who you say, would dare?
Would dare put up that wall?
Just a simple stair,
access denied seems unfair.

A child small you say ,
no access seems alright.
And come whatever may,
little one, no way!

No mere child I cry!
This small wee one I love,
oh dear pet of my,
doggie safe nearby.

Those child gates really do come in handly....

This is priceless! But the gate must be done for the sanity of all!

I enjoyed that, Jim! I wonder what pups think of when they come to these gates!

A surprise ending :-) I was expecting a picture of a small child. But whichever, sometimes gates and denying access is for safety and must be employed. A nice take on stairs.

Cute! And a unique view of how must it seem to all little ones who see us put such things up - seemingly on a whim!

Adorable!! What whimsy! I just gave away my 2 child safety gates that I had for years for my Pekes. They no longer worked well for me -or should I say my cats! hahaha!

We have graduated to using the child gates for our animals. I think this must say something about humans and their pets!

What a lovely poem that made me smile. I remember those gates well -- it's been many years since I've had to use one, for child or furry creature. :~)

Hi Jim. those gates bought memories back of many moons ago. I used them to keep the kids and dogs from going down a circular staicase to the basement..

This is a clever take on the prompt and so sweet! Thanks for your info re the pelicans. What did you mean when you said they don't swoop to fish?

Better safe than sorry I always say. We used to have to do that for our rabbits too. Now the cats have the run of the house, except those places where I keep the doors shut at all times.

I like your poem, but Katrin doesn't look too pleased with the barrier.

What a QT is your frustrated little pooch. I enjoyed your poetry too and I’m chuckling at this one because of the OSI post I shared at Sacred Ruminations this morning on a similar topic. I use a doggie gate indoors, but outside Molly was on her own … sort of ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
