Colleen at Wordcraft poetry suggested writing a syllabic poem using synonyms for the words OPEN and CLOSE.
When the sun unfurls
in the rosy morning sky
the owl shuts her eyes.
In my haiku I used unfurl as a synonym of open and shut as a synonym for close.
Speaking of animals I have a cat poem in a new anthology of ekphrastic poetry published by Moonstone Press. It can be purchased here if you like ekphrastic poetry. https://moonstone-arts-center.square.site/product/ekphrastic-poetry/423
