measure inches, feet
season can’t change crooked walls
rules my day
leaving me one morsel
follow affection’s trail
perfect is the trap
“sir, you are no mere cat!”
turn from being shunned
closer now you come
sidle Cheshire smile
“sit with me awhile”
again, I take the bait
no exit no escape
in your claws another mouse
so many in this house
sand another wall
this house has endless seasons
a poem on the stairs
This “Cat” poem (prompted by Poet’s United) was written on the stairs on a scrap of cardboard while I was sanding and prepping something else that doesn’t want to stay attached to my house.
I am nearing completion (next Wednesday my deadline) of a year-long remodel. I look forward to writing the stories cluttering in my head.
Neither angel nor a fiend
can man be more or less
in life what he seems
it appears in death
he can be considerably more
set on a pedestal
something the saint never aimed for
suns rise and set, life renewed
images in stone
The image is the icon for a popular TV series (and movie) called “The Saint.”
This week the Poet’s United prompt is Saint or Saintliness.
Sorry if I am not online and commenting as much as I would like. Below the remodel that has been taking up most of my waking hours. Nearing completion still means chair rail, wainscot and crown molding in several rooms. My son is coming to help me with the outdoors.
