Animals are known to be one of the most prominents forms of alternative medicine for people with special needs and medical conditions. Whether we physically or mentally interact with animals through summer camp programs, looking at pieces of artwork with animals in it, or regularly spend time with a pet, we are always having some form of connection with animals.

Although I ultimately write poetry based on food products, places I've been to, and experiences I've had over the years, I also enjoy writing all kinds of animal poems.

My main favourite animal is a dog, because my relatives had dogs and I was often close to them. They were kind of like having my own dogs, especially when it came to my cousin who always had dogs and would often visit my mom, brother, my mother's friends, our other family members, and myself. In addition to being a self-proclaimed dog lover, I also favour other animals like chicks, seals, dolphins, rabbits, and piglets.

Below is a small collection of my animal poems that I've written to show all of my friends and fans on Vocal!

1. Ducklings (haiku-chain)

By Andrea Lightfoot on Unsplash

Blonde baby ducks

waddle to their baskets,

and say- "quack, quack, quack"!

They are soft as fluff

and miniature as beans;

small fuzzy yellow suckers!

A gift from the earth

to bring home with me;

cozy little ducks.

2. Starfish (haiku)

By Lisa Davidson on Unsplash

Living ocean stars.

They crawl on little pebbles,

and sleep on white sand.

3. Poodles (acrostic)

By Alison Pang on Unsplash

Playful as young children on the swings

Overly sweet and cheek-pinching cute

Ornamental like talking figurines

Devoted to the living things they adore

Little like jelly beans tumbling from the tree

Entertaining like a comedy television show

Smart as a thousand universities.

4. Tiny Turtles (acrostic)

By David Levêque on Unsplash

Too scared to fight with others

In their own little world

Nothing to lose in life

Youthful, adorable and children forever.

Tripping along the ivory sandy beaches

Unisex critters that are undressed

Retreating to their own spaces

Tender as glass flower vases

Longing for winter and fall to end

Enjoying the beauty of tropical Florida weather

Sleeping on the pebbly rocks below the cerulean sea.

5. Bluebirds (haiku)

By Richard Sagredo on Unsplash

Dear little warblers;

you sing like living harps

that walk on branches

6. Crabs (brevity)

By Zita Almasy de Zsadany on Unsplash

Vermilion hermit crabs

amble along the beige sandy path

and hear the psalm of the

arctic lake whispering.
