This Little Piggy…


This little piggy

does not belong to us

even though it seems at home

running through our garden

no one knows who it belongs to

even the local pig farmer didn’t think it was one of his

it suddenly appeared

causing chaos in the neighbourhood

had everyone chasing after it

trying to catch it


it eluded all of us


it was Jonathan Livingston Piggy

it was taking a reprieve from domesticity

it was chasing evanescent freedom

it belonged to itself

it was last seen

disappearing into the wild

whether it will survive

getting what it wanted

is a mystery


the impression it left behind






“Sometimes,’ said Pooh, ‘the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
― A.A. Milne
