Which Pet Is Better?

For FOWC: Amuse and the MVB Prompt: Meow (because I wrote about cats). My family probably won’t get any new pets anytime soon, but maybe I will get my own dog or cat later. I like both for different reasons.


If my family gets another pet,
Should we welcome a dog or buy a cat?
It’s been some years but we are not sure yet.

Yet we are sure that either will amuse,
Despite most cats and dogs differing much.
Cats are not likely, are they, to chew shoes?

Dogs are much more effusive with their joy,
Yet cats have royal presence and more peace.
Either type would be a good girl or boy.

I find this picture pretty hilarious for some reason, so it seemed perfect for this post!

Poem for My Birthday

I wrote this preemptively, 3 or 4 weeks ago, but I didn’t want to forget about the idea I had. The way things have tended to be during the past year or so, I felt that it was okay to congratulate myself in advance. ๐Ÿ™‚
Update: linked to the Writers’ Pantry on 6/20/2021.


ย I have done it:
I have gone around the sun again.
I have gone many thousands of miles per hour,
Seeing a variety of seasonal scenery,
Only to arrive back in the same place.

There is no way I am the same person.
I have fought and won
Bloody, but currently
That has to be enough.

I colored this picture last October.

Happy Spring!

For Linda G. Hill’s coloring club this month, I have another picture from my Pusheen the cat coloring book, which I hadn’t colored in in a while.

As another, bonus sign of spring, there are some strawberries growing in my family’s garden!
This was taken a few days ago. Soon we’ll get to eat them!

Shiny Dreams

This is for Linda G. Hill’s coloring club for this month. I colored it today.ย

There once was a cat on a cloud

Who loved to take in night’s dark shroud,

Because all the stars

And planets like Marsย 

Finally to shine were allowed.ย 

I made up the limerick off the top of my head because why not. I know planets don’t shine, but in my colorful dream-world they do. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Within the Lines

This is for Linda G. Hill’s coloring club for this month. I have colored several pictures, and here is one of them, plus part of another.

I also wrote a poem inspired partly by the coloring pages, since they can be quite fantastical! We color within the lines but can choose any picture we want. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Sharing with today’s Writers’ Pantry.

 

The rules say color within the lines,
But the artist’s mind divines
How to within the form be free,
Or to trash it, if need be:

These rules don’t dictate what to draw —
Let one’s artistry be raw —
Nor which colors one must use.
If some are fixed, there’s more to choose!
