Today's Prompt is BOOK OF LOVE

Today is Chapter six in the book of love.
Here is how it goes...

Chapters                         Forms of poetry
1) Parents                     1) Tanka
2) Siblings                    2) 15 words or less
3) Spouse                     3) Crapsey Cinquain
4) Children                    4) Acrostic
5) Friends                     5) Flash 55
6) Pets                          6) English Sonnet
7) Self                           7) Free Verse

The rules are ...
Once you use a form you can not use it again, we are looking to have all seven forms used in the book.
Once you use a chapter you can not use it again, all the chapters must be used.
You may use any form with any chapter as long as you do not repeat them.
Bandit and I are doing ours in the order given for both the chapters and the form.
So our book of love looks like this

1) Parents   A Tanka poem
2) Siblings  15 words or less
3) Spouse   A Crapsey Cinquain
4) Children   An Acrostic Poem
5) Friends  in a Flash 55
6) Pets   An English Sonnet
7) Self  Free Verse
An English Sonnet
She has a face of fur it's true
and a bit of an attitude
She'll rub herself all over you
please don't think of her as rude
It is just her way of knowing
if you are friend or foe
her sweet little way of showing
that she loves us so
when she wants attention
like a dog she'll fetch
did I forget to mention
she also like to scratch
wouldn't trade her for the world
Valentine Rascle, our little girl
