Freedom Per Brenda’s 29th Prompt

I'm interested in social issues, relationships, problems of daily living, jobs, exercise, poems and fiction, plus safer living conditions.


I think we are all grateful to Brenda for her prompts, but also her analysis after the fact. That is very time consuming, and she has been a friend to us all. I have enjoyed writing poetry and a couple of short stories as well.

Freedom means so much to most of us. I love Brenda’s own response, which was rather serious. I decided to have some fun with this prompt and I have taken a light-hearted approach.. My poems and pictures tell the story.


Acrostic Poem

Free we will be

Run for your life

Everyone must hurry

Each minute counts

Do what you must

Our feet must scurry

Minutes do count


Golden Retrievers

Freedom is everyone’s goal

Escaping is good for our soul

The group all decided to run

Running together will be fun

A beautiful day we must be free

We will run all the way to the sea

The man does not understand

Our escape is already planned

Together we will spend time

Leaving today will be sublime

Escaping so soon is our plan

We want to outsmart the man

We really hope to escape today

The lead dog shows us the way

The pack does not want to stay

Golden retrievers go all the way
