Goat Sisters

A letter to my goatsisters at the prompting of Herotomost for today’s challenge at Real Toads.  I am so excited to be able to travel back to New York this summer to spend more time with my goatsisters.

Dear Goatsisters,

Where would I be
if we hadn’t connected?
A lonely “crazy goat lady”
instead of us three.
Oh, the joy of sharing stories
with those who know
the love and fears that
come with a caprine family.
A goat and a blog here.
A goat and a blog there.
The desire of a goat and a blog
butting us together.
The miles disappear,
sisterhood for real.
Where would I be without you?

Forever goat kisses,




We Know

At Real Toads, Fireblossom gave us a list of words from The Myth of You and Me by Leah Stewart to choose from and asked that we use at least three.  I’ve managed to use four from the list.  The challenge at d’Verse Poets today is to reflect on language.  When we use it or when it might have failed us.

We know
deep within our hearts
a deep mutual love exists.
A secret we share, we two,
just knowing the others’ thoughts.
No language required
to express our needs and fears.
We know.
Some call it crazy talk and say
you can’t communicate with animals,
but Millie and me,
We know.
Choose to listen without ears;
open the mind to possibilities
and it’s easy to hear.
We know.
