Poetry Train…

I figured I’d get a jump on the Poetry Train…lol.

Here’s my contribution:

Little black cat,

Napping the day away.

If I asked,

What do you dream of?

What would you say?

I dream of birds,

You say with a grin.

Fluttering outside my window

In the cold winter air.

I want to invite them in.

I dream of mice,

You say with a smirk.

Scurrying from place to place

In a frenzied hurry.

Too much work.

I dream of fish,

You say with a smile.

Swimming in bowls

Side to side slowly.

To catch, it would take a while.

I dream of warmth,

You say with a purr.

Curling on his lap

Stroking my back

Softly and gently.

I secretly adore him.

Stop by Rhian’s blog to see who else is on the train.

    Hey R.G.,

    Thanks for the poem and the cover. I love the cover for your Samhain release. Anne did an awesome job on it. 🙂

    the kitty is cute.

    The picture made me chuckle out loud, and the poem made me look over at my sleeping dog and wonder the same thing.

    ‘I secretly adore him.’ – great last line.
