I recognize the work this marker did, Helping to color all the dino-cats, With its quite useful hue of grayish-green. So sad since I that hue’s decline have seen: I’ll miss that marker, but it’s work is done.
At least it’s been used up, did not dry out, Fulfilled its purpose, a good marker-life. For people perhaps that could be a guide, To find their purpose and to live it well — To do what one was born for, fear aside.
I endeavored to write in blank verse for this one. Linking with DVerse OLN, before DVerse goes on summer break. 🙂
I appreciate Fandango’s Flashback Friday because I get to go back and have my memory refreshed about some of my own writings! XD I vacillated between sharing two poems, with completely different tones. Here’s a link to the one I didn’t choose, and below I have the one that’s much happier, which was what I originally had decided to share. It was in response to a challenge to write from the perspective of a color.
There are supposed to be “scattered showers” where I live today, which tends to make things emotionally more difficult for me, but even if it is rainy, the day won’t be a disaster. It’s a good sign that I’ve already gotten through the first half of the day. 🙂
A rainy day? No need to sob.
Need some comfort? Sounds like a job
For the fluffiest robe, blanket,
Silliest rom-com you can get,
Maybe a cup of hot chocolate,
Curl up next to your favorite pet.
(Pusheen the cat doesn’t mind rainy or cold days. 🙂 )
This silly poem is brought to you by SoCS. Side note: I wish I had a dog or a cat.
Today’s MVB prompt, Purring, made me think of my neighbor’s kittens, so I wrote this. This is another poem that I wasn’t originally planning on posting, but why not? It’s a little late, but at least it’s still the 6th on the west coast. Also, I wanted to include a photo, but it wouldn’t upload!
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 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. 🙂 Update: linked to the Writers’ Pantry on 6/20/2021.
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.
Today I am sharing a poem that I wrote earlier this month, along with a coloring page, for Linda G. Hill’s coloring club for the month of May. I thought the picture was super cute, and the colors are not spartan at all. 🙂
