The 100 Mile Hallway
I see a ghost standing
At the end of the hallway.
Or is it a person,
I ask myself. A child or friend
In fuzzy outline,
An empty figure.
Can anyone else see it?

The ghostboy stares
Through empty eyes,
Blackened pits void of sight.
Behind him lies an orange...Read More

Good Yankee Advice for Spring
Don’t be fooled by purple crocuses
or bright yellow daffodils – it’s an illusion.
They’ll be under a crust of snow by morning,
and the shovels you put away last month 
will have to be brought out and used again.

Spring is a magician...Read More

Let There Be Limericks: A couple about cats
A cruel circus lion tamer named Fred
Dropped his whip once and ended up dead.
When his body was found
It was scattered around,
Badly scratched and detached from his head.


Where a homeless old woman once sat,
Her pet puss was found dead and suspiciously...Read More

A song crept into my soul today riding on the summer wind
Then peeked into my summer place closed for many seasons -
Windows shuttered standing on a grassy knoll
Whitewashed in the morning melody at the waters edge -
Waiting - held...Read More

Premium Member When Mia Bella Reads
There is a tabby fairy
by the name of Mia Bella
she lives among the flowers
and she raises the Chlorella.

By daylight she does garden
but when old Sol beds down
all the tabbies in the kingdom
will gather in a round.

She’ll read her many stories

I love my coffee mug
The color background white
On the front of the mug
It has an etching image
The handle is red
Same inside the

There is an etching 
Of a Tabby cat
He has an expression
Of a pout on his face
In a grumpy mood

When your kitty comes prancing to greet you
and seems more than elated to meet you,
don’t delude yourself, dude.
I don’t mean to be rude:
if it could, that cute tabby would eat you....Read More

A cacophony of cats in my life.
Not one or two, but fifteen!
Each,who along with joy,
brought sadness and strife!
All shapes and sizes with grand
and most loving personalities.

The Maine Koone was the smallest
of all.
Maxine was pedigreed and came
home as a present for...Read More

Premium Member A Very True Tail or Tale
They’re cute, little opossums; riding on Mama’s back; 
her tail rail, secures precious brood.  
They’ll grow to be lethal rats; 
they’ll try to eat your dog or cat and they will probably win their battle, as they have, giant...Read More

Mr. Orange our eighteen-year-old tabby
Has had a good life, it was a very sad day
Time must move on
Each day the sun shone
Greeting his surrogate keeper, meowing for his nappy

Premium Member country magic
whisper of lilac in the summer’s day
variety of flowery fragrances wafting
streaming sunbeams warming gray striped tabby
mums and petunias decorating wrap-around porch
wasps and bees collecting butterflies and faeries
country magic adorned with marigolds, tomatoes, and roses

Premium Member The Forgetting

They are older now of course,
even their fat tabby cats are living longer,
contrarywise, the world is younger, 
the world has caught a disease,
the sky is getting closer to the ground,
and the ground gives way.
 
They are older and more lost...Read More

Premium Member Pre-Dawn Nocturn

There was a surprise attack last night,
it was just before dawn, the dark still
thickly laid around my head.
A time when heroes are at their weakest,
where troops turn restlessly in their fox holes,
where lions hunt inside a slowly narrowing
spiral of darkness.

When saying good-bye is the only answer
But our 18-year-old tabby is ravished with cancer
Never complains
Lives with the pain
The alternative is hard to accept with candor

Mr. Orange seems to be nearing closure
A big tooth infection could mean it's all over
An orange tabby, our cat
18 years young, how about that
He's very strong, not ready to push up clover

Premium Member Woman in Black Colors



She cooks fish and rice,
her unfolded hips
pushing all into place.
Oils, and aromas,
train buds to lap at shadows.
The marl of her hands
turns bowls of smoke
into lemon and butter. 

I won’t get to eat the spiced Mackerel,
but I imagine my scaly head...Read More

Oh, sometimes I lose my reality,
and have a severe psychosis;
my life is a sloping fatality,
sliding on life's bevel is atrocious;
into a sinkhole deep and circular,
with a scream quite spectacular.

Often, I feel like an outcast drifter shabby,
a derelict no better than...Read More

Amber Nights



The streets where I live are soft as rugs,
Lamplights of deep amber light them.
A lone, orange tabby trots on his way,
Nobody yelling to f'ind him.

The stars' eyes peek over sleepy trees.
The moon lights a white cat asleep on the deck.

The raccoon was brazen
Bold, devilishly handsome
I fell in love quickly
I know. Raccoons are no good for opossums
But the heart wants who the heart wants.

We met on a warm day
in the throes of summer
He was eating cat food when I arrived

A White Frame
A white frame on the wall
Begins with an orange hat
Followed by pom-poms and flaps
Two ties under the chin
It is a grey -white tabby
He is in a state of shock

His eyes show he's surprised
Wearing a winter hat
Like a statue- he sits...Read More
