"Amid the jagged shadows of mossy leafless boughs"- Samuel Taylor Coleridge Amid the jagged shadows of mossy leafless boughs that dance upon this grassy shawl which covers you, such fond, sweet memories of joy, for me, arouse my shadowed thoughts of total love- so simply true. I come and stand here often, as the sun sets low, recalling how I closely-held you in my arms. Your loving eyes spoke feelings in their gentle glow. Oh, how I miss your presence and engaging charms. Beneath this ancient tree- the soothing, quiet breeze uplifts bare limbs that sway in paying homage to those full, devoted years you gave your love with ease- the kind I could depend on- staunch and impromptu. Through memories of my dear Charlie Cat, I browse- amid the jagged shadows of mossy leafless boughs. November 27, 2019 ~2nd Place~ Writing Challenge 3, November - Any Form Sponsor, Dear Heart - Wisshkobi Ode Judged: 12/03/2019 "What greater gift than the love of a cat." Charles Dickens

I agree. I cried for month when I lost my sweet Lily. They become such an important part of our lives. I was very moved by this beautiful, beautiful sonnet Sandra! Congratulations on your Second place win that is a top winner for me. xxoo
