Purrsday Poetry: Max – When I am very old & sick…

Hi everyone,

Please find below the latest entry in Purrsday Poetry by Linda S. Smith:



I will sleep all day in the sunroom in my favorite chair.
Between naps I will look out the windows into the yard
& chase squirrels

…. in my mind.

About the author: I’m married to Willy & have a stepson who owns / runs a local restaurant with his wife. I’m a retired Operating Room Registered Nurse & president of a local non-profit that sponsors 10 charities at Christmas & sends a local middle school student to NASA’s Space Camp in Huntsville, AL annually. I’m a 9 year breast cancer survivor & speak to seminars & groups about breast cancer. Also speak about fundraising, being a professional woman & to nurses seminars on a number of topics. I’m a freelance writer with articles published in Central Virginia HOME Magazine, the Communique (magazine), our local newspaper & a story published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Nurses. I’ve written & published one book of poetry / prose called Reflections of My Life of  Rhyme. I totally enjoy writing the blog, probably more than anything I write, even though I don’t get paid for that. My thoughts on writing the blog are that if something I write makes just one person smile or feel some sort of connection, than I am successful. I have been surprised at the number of followers I have. From 2009 – 2015 I hosted a local television talk show, Lynchburg Live. Doing the show was one of the joys of my life.

      Thank you so much, Patricia. It is simple. I wrote it watching Max sleeping in his chair. He left us with dignity shortly afterward. What joy he brought to our lives.
