Teddy contest

Teddy bares all...

by trimple

Hello,

I'm Teddy

a concentric fluffball;
soft
quiet
unassuming
unflinching.

A mute confidante

keeper of whispers;
both honey sweet
and full of wounds
to my ears, told
they stay
nestled...

I'm a lovable leaning post...

Someone to share a day,
Somebody to play with
when everybody else
is busy getting old...

A bed buddy for children to dream beside.

Adults love me too
and often smile when they spot me
sitting in the moonlight
slumped on a shelf 
stuffed with children's stories
next to the books...



Teddy bear contest entry
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
