never failing to impress or turn heads
Was a lady on earth long years ago
who made falling in love easily so.

She knew more than any other one did
of romantic affairs and mystic bliss

The little waif,
She seemed scared.
I do not like dreams,
She said.
Holding my hand in hers,
She felt secure and slept
And did not dream.
As of then
There was nothing to fear,
I had closed all doors
Opening into her mind,
It was still daytime.
When she awoke

I love December when I can put on a warm cozy sweater and light the fireplace

making a lovely view outside my window. ...Read More

The way I see it 
the world’s gone wrong

And mum has to

From where I crawl
 It is my view

A little head bonk turns a frown upside down;
Just a little tug on your dangling hair, 
a silly ball of yarn and they become a clown;

With a chorus of purrs following everywhere 
running around chasing catnip
with large eyes, they hold...Read More

The Gift
I woke this morning
And what did I see
My cat on my chest
Looking down on me

Shocked as you can imagine
Her on my chest
That's not the worst part
Let me tell you the rest

In her mouth
Was a long tail mouse
She had probably caught
Somewhere...Read More

The plane sets sail across an ocean of stars..
Like a cat in the dark, you appear out of nowhere.
Just when I think she's through with me, there she is.
Beckoning for me to follow her,
Same as I've always done.

A Great Day
Dear diary, it has been a great day.
I found a penny on the carpet,
played with it awhile and then made a wish.
I won’t tell you what it is but,
maybe the dog will disappear.

Give us a little warning.

they are always checking up, 
and watchful.

How mean.
