Bare Bones Bob

Pretending he has all he needs. On two wheels of ILLUSION, he rides his steed. EVENTUALLY the ride is over. To find him lying in a bed of clover. Reminicing is his favorite game. You'd never know he feels any shame. Partytime comes and he fades away. Attentive INFUSION leaves him in dismay. Longing for a comfortable corner. Always seems the INEVITABLE mourner. Concience sighs with casual levity. Evoking riches of unusual CREATIVITY.

One I missed before !! Good write !! Sometimes our concience sighs make for good poetry. It's kind of like having a little talk with self and see what comes from the talk...if that make sense. To answer the question on my kitty I do not have a cat. Though I have had many over the years...and they DO NOT like bows or anything in their hair !! lol

rereading this oldie. I enjoyed the message and the title to go with it. happy Christmas season to you. I am hoping to find a friend with a cat. I want to get a cat but not a "DUD" this time, just a friendly sweet cat who uses its litter box!!! (that's my Xmas wish!)

Robert- No bones about it, cool! A different take on the contest--sometimes I take a different route on a contest than others and it is penalized much. Oh well, write to your heart's content...continue to be original. It is swell! All the best in the palace competition. I will look for your name! Gwendolen
