Two Poems

My allergies are better. I'm almost done with the yucky medicine and the air here is clear again, so we can sit outside on the porch. Mommy just joined this group whose members write a poem or haiku once a week. She found out about it from Gandalf & Grayson's mom. Since she refers to herself as a member of Crappy Poets Anonymous this should be interesting. She's mainly doing it to improve her eye for detail. Here's her first effort:

A Reflection on My Cat

A shaft of sunlight
slashes through the
venetian blinds.
A pool of yellow light
rests upon the hardwood

My fat orange cat
waddles into the circle of
yellow. He curls in to a ball,
scrunches his eyes shut and purrs.

Common light becomes special
when enveloping
a loved one.

Here's my first effort:

I sneezed twelve times in a row.
The Man thought it was funny.

I wiped snot all over his shoe.
Who's laughing now?
Purrs, Muffy

Muffy, Are you sure that was poetry? Wiping your nose on a shoe? Ah, Muffin, you might want to take a clue from your mom.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

Awww - our Lady was reading with us and we were all smiling and thinking how sweet and lovely your mom's poem was...then we got to yours and burst out laughing - excellent! both of you!

My Mommie ML did the same thing as the Lady (above post). She read me your mom's poem and we smiled at each other. She started reading Muffin's poem and couldn't finish the second sentence for laughing so hard.
Good job...

Hey Muffin, do you think your mommy would like some postcards from Joshua Tree National Forest? Mommy got them on vacation and has a bunch of pretty ones. She thought your mommy might like them.
