in a ten cup kitchen

They rifle the room

I might have to put this on my wall

 .

It’s really hard for me to admit

until  one moment

When I talk through a murder

with my husband …

I would like some feedback

NaPoWrMo 2015 – Day 16 – Today a terzanelle – Skinning the Beast

.

Skinning   the   Beast

 .

Though my mother stood back at the sight

The lamb braced to the hook and raised,

Limp body, hind feet now lifted to a height.

.

Young child that I was, I was unfazed.

But mother just could not stand and watch

The lamb braced to the hook and raised.

.

As Dad yanked on the rope another notch

And wrapped the rope tight around the tree.

But mother just could not stand and watch.

.

So there was Dad, me and the lamb, us three,

While Dad adjusted the kill as it swung

And wrapped the rope tight around the tree.

.

Taunt the carcass, work moves up a rung.

Begin to skin the beast, warming a hand

While Dad adjusted the kill as it swung.

.

Mother simply does not understand,

That one such as me my farm skills excite.

Begin to skin the beast, warming a hand,

And Father guides me with pride and delight
