A Home With Two Cats

These are two etherees that will be put together side by side to form ONE complete poem having 11 syllables per line, so I thought i would show how it is done. It's like fitting two puzzle pieces together to form the poem for the contest at the bottom! (Etheree #1) Two cats now occupy a space that is my home, their kingdom, with beds to hide beneath, and with closets, stairs and chairs small pets like to explore and where comfy, side by side, they doze. Two cats, now a part of me, show me daily. . . love (etheree #2) Cute new friends, no longer foes, but sister companions, share common spaces and a place even more important: the heart I give, along with the place they frolic in, with sofas they climb and desktops where they perch. Here my joy lives. (I have put the lines of the top etheree in parentheses so you can see how neatly they fit together with the reverse etheree #2) A Home with Two Cats (Two) cute new friends, no longer foes, but sister (cats now) companions, share common spaces and (occupy) a place even more important: (a space that is) the heart I give, along with (my home, their kingdom), the place they frolic in, (with beds to hide beneath), with sofas they climb (and with closets, stairs and chairs) and desktops where (small pets like to explore and where) they perch. Here (comfy, side by side, they doze. Two cats,) my joy (now a part of me, show me daily. . . love) lives. Hope I explained it so it was understood how I did it!! For the Pet Contest of Francine Roberts

I didn't realize how complicated this is the first time I read it when I was looking for your quadruple (it was a quick read). HHHMMM, you've got me thinking. I'll let you know if I come up with something, maybe another flower poem. Thanks Andrea.

Andrea, I am now going to switch my computer off and go and stick my head in a bucket. I couldn't begin to weave a work like this , hell, I can only just tie my laces without sticking my tongue out. A brilliant creation, and you should be rightly proud. I'm in awe. Viv x

Loved how you joined the two to make a fuller, write that is both complex but simple. We also have two cats that my hubby spoils more than I do. Thanks for showing how it's done. ~Jan
