Trite Expressions and True Companionship

I wrote this acrostic for FOWC: Trite, and the other poem is a bonus, not prompted but it made me smile writing it, and I hope it makes you smile also. 😀

Tried and true, yet
Ringing of hollowness —
Inane in the face of
Terrible suffering,
Empathy reaches beyond words.


Puppies and kittens make me smile,
Especially corgis and pugs.
Gush over the cuties awhile,
Accept their unconditional hugs,
Receive a feeling safe and snug:
What a beautiful, loving being,
Nothing but joy at what I’m seeing!
