NAPOWRIMO 2017~ Day 1~ Feline Affair ~

 I’d like to challenge you to write a Kay-Ryan-esque poem: short, tight lines, rhymes interwoven throughout, maybe an animal or two, and, if you can manage to stuff it in, a sharp little philosophical conclusion.


More grey than white

she was,sensuously stirring,

if otherwise

sleeping or pretending

to sleep,what attracted

her to peep

through the glass

then back down

and pass

to the side

to laze as if

in a drunken daze

daily visit

a long quiet look

then off to the nook,

satisfied with one

deep open eyed

glance,set her

in the love trance,


no desire to roll

or prance

contentment replete

in form and fur

silent breath

silent purr

guarding the door

on barren floor

profound faith

defying death_

my love have seen

no desire for more

to heaven I’ve been
