There once lived a yeti

P.C :- Sadje

Beyond the snowy mountains of Timber- ti,

There once lived a yeti*,

Huge, hairy, scary he appeared to be,

So scary was the abominable snowman, nobody cared to mingle with him out of glee,

What many didn’t know about him,

Was, he could turn into any form he liked, without breaking a limb,

Sparrow, eagle, friendly little boy, you say,

He was right there waving a friendly hey!

And thus , air- wrecked passengers he befriended,

Transfiguring into a magic carpet, to reach their destinations his services he extended, 

Tirelessly working sherpas pulling their wares,

Magicking into a cart he attended unburdening their troubles without any airs,

Kids included him during their play- time,

Transforming into a little boy to play with them all the time,

He was occupied full- time,

He was engaged even in his free time,

No longer fearsome thus,

A friendly neighbourhood yeti, without a fuss,

Beyond the snowy mountains of Timber- ti,

There once lived a yeti.

Thoughts :- My first look at the picture and I could see mountains, I’m not sure whether it’s my eyes tricking clouds shaped as mountains or if there are real mountains . Hence this poem.

Yeti * :- A large hairy creature resembling a human or bear, said to live in the highest part of the Himalayas.( Google)

  1. You’ve managed to include the Sunday writing prompt as well. This week’s prompt was “shapeshifters”. I loved this one. Such a sweet poem about a misunderstood Yeti. Great job, Aiswarya.

      1. I had found out about it recently too and I just finished writing my response. I got to know about this challenge through a post from a fellow blogger.
        You’re more than welcome, Aiswarya πŸ˜ƒ


      1. My pleasure πŸ™‚
        It’s been some months since I was actively blogging. My family recently recovered from Covid, among other personal issues. But now that I’ve got the time and energy, it’s good to be back here.
        How have you been? 😊
