These are a couple of odes to my own furry family:
He watches me with patience
As I work a feverish pace
To meet another deadline,
I ignore his loving face.
His rumbling song beats time for me
As fingers fly and brain engages
Nods off and purrs outrageously,
While I complete these pages.
Soft shadows drift across the screen
As daylight filters to an end
I sigh and put the mouse aside
And turn to face my purring friend.
I recognize at times like this,
How lucky to be me,
To have this faithful Golden Boy
Who loves me unconditionally.
Deep, emerald eyes that comtemplate
What do they see within my soul?
Can they read my longing
To be more like a cat?
And "The Boys" respond in kind:
Shannon's Rain Poem
i think that i shall never see
a raindrop lovelier than me
i will be a happy camper
safe inside where its not damper
i was endowed with feline brain
to stay indoors out of the rain
The Miracle of Me, by Bubba
I know I was designed to be
Adored by all who encounter me
With glossy fur and emerald eyes
My glory's sure to mesmerize
Those hapless humans who think that
A dog's a dog; a cat's a cat
Will surely come around to see
The miracle that is me.
