Please check out the latest WD Poetic Form Challenge. The current form is the rispetto.

For this week's prompt, write a walking poem. The poem can incorporate any type of walk or form of walking. That includes plays on ideas like the walking dead and dead man walking--or even a Johnny Cash "I Walk the Line" thing-a-ma-do and what-have-you. Keep walking the walk and talking the talk.

Here's my attempt:

"Nature Walk"

First, we see
a beaver, and then,
we see deer.
Of course, bears
and fast snakes of all sizes.
Once, even Bigfoot.
