I'm currently taking a Creative Writing class as part of my English degree (which is almost done! Four more classes...). Anyway I had to write a riddle, which I had never tried before. I am not typically a fan of poetry, reading it or writing it, but I ended up having a ton of fun so I am sharing my poem here. Feel free to guess the subject of the riddle in the comments!
Hands reach towards the sky
Desperate for warmth after
Winter’s cold. How long has it been
Since the sky shined so brightly?
Toes dig into soft, wet earth,
searching deeper for stability
and strength. The brush of
Rabbit fur against the ankle.
The scratch of a deer’s antler
Against the rough brown skin
Of the shoulder. Surrounded
By the smell of grass wet from an
Afternoon rainstorm. Standing tall
Among friends of all shapes and sizes.
Soaking up the sun.
