Weekend Writing Prompt #256

Many thanks to Sammi Cox for hosting this Saturday challenge.
Pretty and persuasive, sometimes
Rendering parental guidance futile and frustrated towards
Overbearing and opinionated teenager that has emerged from child.
Verbal confrontation, rebellion and standoffs
Often occur as different and stubborn
Characteristics flow from this new being.
Abundant and unabashed determination, yet
Teasing and tactile, producing
Insurmountable challenges that develop into
Visions to behold of this changeling that was once
Eloquent elegance.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    The poem really does describe the metamorphosis! They enter the chaos of adolescence as sweet and compliant children and emerge on the other side as fragile young adults ready to fledge – the only thing holding them back is still untried wings!

  3. I had two of those, bless them!

  4. Bill says:

    That’s lovely. Well done.

  5. sometimes I feel like my seven-year-old is already a teenager – oy vey!
