Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

As we do most Thursdays, Kitties Blue and I are joining our dear friends Teddy and angel Sammy for Thoroughly Poetic Thursday.

This tiny, blue house is the inspiration photo Mom Pam provided. It was challenging, yet fun, to write a poem about it. Our poem is below. To read the one Sammy will have sent from the Rainbow Bridge and find links (in the comments) to other poems, click on the poetry badge.

The Tiny Blue House

A tiny house is purrfect for a cat;
Much better than living in a hat
Or in a shoe like that old woman.
That’s not even good for a human.

We live in a big house, which is best,
So the eight of us aren’t always stressed.
Stuffing us into an itty bitty place
Wouldn’t allow each to have private space.

If we tried to live in this small abode,
Some of us would need to hit the road
And look for a home much less crowded,
Where we wouldn’t feel totally surrounded.

But if you’re a single cat or maybe a pair,
You probably won’t mind if you have to share.
You’ll be nice and cozy in your tiny home,
And you will never want to roam.

But you’ll be able to travel wherever you desire—
As long as you don’t get a flat tire—
Without ever having to leave your warm bed
Or even having to lift your sleepy head.

You can live on a mountain or at the beach.
No destination is ever out of reach.
Kitties Blue might be just a tad jealous,
But I’m pretty certain they’ll never tell us.

Whether you travel today or tomorrow,
Enjoy your house no matter where you go.
But don’t forget to send a note once in a while.
To tell us about your nomad lifestyle.

I am not really satisfied with how this poem ends, which reminds me of what Jeff Daniel Marion, a poet teaching a workshop in which I was enrolled, once told me. “Most poems are never really finished; they are abandoned.” That’s exactly how I feel about this one. Sorry. Hope you like it anyway.

Thankful Thursday

Today’s thankful concerns Sawyer. Since upping his medication dosage on May 12, he has not had a seizure. He, Dad Tom and I would like to thank those who have sent us suggestions on possible ways to help prevent his seizures. I know Sawyer will write about this in a future post. As to now, any prayers, purrs and POTP you can send his way will be greatly appreciated.

Sawyer is doing a lot of sleeping; though, he still has his crazy kitten moments and zoomies. Big brother and protector, Cooper Murphy, is usually close by.
