My Little Ball of Fur

The distant chirping of early birdsThe slow rise of the orange sunSignal the time of your arrival.The door gets opened by meAnd a sleepy-faced cat is seenCalmly sitting on the doorstep.Your tiny head pops up to see meAnd instantly comes out a 'meow'Sounding ever so pleasing to me.You rise slowly and stand on all fourBefore … Continue reading My Little Ball of Fur

Shades of Black

Dark House

Picture source Gloom in the air,All over my lair.Heart so frail,In torment I wail.Memories so strong,None did I wrong.Screams deep inside,Abandoned pillow beside.Walls echo her giggles,Accentuate my struggles.Quilt holds her scent,In my heart a dent.Teddy that she hugged,Broods feeling snubbed.Letters from her kindred,Lies scattered unread.Backyard that she admired,Wonders where she retired.Plants that she mothered,Now fall … Continue reading Dark House
