Purrsday Poetry: Calico Fluff

The ball of calico fluff extends
grows longer,
then longer still…
she uncurls herself,
displaying proudly floofy belly
till the last thing to curl
is her pink, barbed tongue
in a heroic yawp.

Purrsday Poetry: With These Hands

With these hands I held you near to my heart
gently stroking your warm silky hair
Your voice was the most beautiful music
soaring with the love we will always share
With these hands I kept you close

These hands had to let you go for now
This heart forever holds you in it
You are the center of my heart
Each beat answers your call
From above

My soul whispers there will come
a day that these hands will hold you again
Never to let go and your voice shall warm my
very being. Till that day I know
You are here

Dear Cat

Stroking your fur,
I sink into your purr
And I feel my anxiety lessen.

The stress of the day,
Floats so gently away,
In my life you’re a wonderful blessing.

I cuddle you tight,
When things aren’t feeling right,
You don’t judge,
You don’t tut,
You just listen.

You allow me to speak,
When I’m low or I’m weak,
Cat-less folk do not know
What they’re missing.

Purrsday Poetry: Why I worship Bastet – a reflection on cats and women! by Vickie Zisman

Hi everyone,

Please find below our latest entry in the Purrsday Poetry series by Vickie Zisman, this was originally posted on her own Blog here. Don’t forget if you have a cat poem you’d like to publish on our Blog do send us an email to info@katzenworld.co.uk. 🙂

Why I worship Bastet – a reflection on cats and women! by Vickie Zisman

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”

Robert A. Heinlein

Bastet

(Have you noticed the identical eyes of  both cat and girl?)

A historical note: Bastet (or formerly BaastUbaste, and Baset) was a goddess of  Warfare in the Lower Egypt in the period of the second dynasty  (2890 BC). The name changed later  to Bastet, as we know it today. The deity conceptually evolved  from the Lioness goddess –  a fierce huntress,  warrior and protector (of the Sun God Ra, and “nicknamed” Lady of Flame or the Eye of Ra)- to a cat goddess, after the ferals became domesticated in Egypt, around first millennium BC. Cats were elevated to the rank of God.

So what can we say of a Woman and Cat?

Reflecting on Bastet….

That Woman and Cat entwined they beget

The Book of the Master Plan

Cat icon

That Woman and Cat the One they become

Keep everything in place

The Order of things, the Essence of Being

The Mind of the Universe

Cat icon

Protecting the Home, the Wisdom of Old

The Spirit that guides the Light

The Soft Velvet Paw that will sink its Claw

And rip out your unwary Heart

Cat icon

The Gaze that will mesmerize your Mind

The Purr that will balance your Soul

Irresistible Softness of unearthly Warmth

That will bring  Rebirth to you Whole

Cat icon

The whimsical Grace, the wistful Face

The Reason that talks to Divine

The Wildness untamed, the Cheek unashamed

This fusion is Woman-Feline

Purrsday Poetry: Edith and Honey by James Purslow

Hi everyone,

Please find below our latest entry in the Purrsday Poetry series by Vickie Zisman, this was originally posted on her own Blog here. Don’t forget if you have a cat poem you’d like to publish on our Blog do send us an email to info@katzenworld.co.uk. 🙂

Edit and Honey by James Purslow

Honey likes children, when they’re quiet as a mouse,
Honey likes children when they’re not in the house.
Edith love cats, she really wants to cuddle
She can never get quite close enough, it leaves her in a muddle.

Honey sees a child and hides under the bed
Or maybe in a cupboard, that’s what her uncle said.
Edith was really patient and looked all day long.
But Honey kept on hiding she just kept on and on.

It’s almost Edith’s bed time and honey’s not yet appeared,
Edith thinks she’s missed her chance, it’s just as she feared.
Perhaps Honey doesn’t like her? She really hoped she did.
She decided to look no more, where the cat was hid.

Now it was her bedtime and she was very sleepy.
She closed her eyes and drifted off, but what was really sneaky
Honey the cat, was slumbering and snoozing under the bed
She climbed right up, onto the pillow and settled by Edith’s head.

First thing in the morning, Edith woke to a surprise,
She could see right next to her, honey’s big wide eyes.
Honey even let her stroke her, and tickle under her chin
They stayed like this for ages, until her mum came in.

Now Edith’s learned a lesson, if she wants a cat sat on her lap,
it’s to stay quite still, settle down and pretend to take a nap

Purrsday Poetry: My Kittie Cat by Vickie Zisman

Hi everyone,

My Kittie Cat by Vickie Zisman

My kittie cat jumped on my lap and said:

Why don’t you scratch my chin

While you at that I will collect

My thoughts that are within

cat lady icon

My fingers running through her fur

Extracted blissful purr

Her eyes  closed shut and she reposed

Submitting  evermore

cat lady icon

Her velvet paws just slightly twitched

In tandem with her dreams

I thought, she must be chasing birds

Or mice, as  it would seem

Her furry slumber on my knees

Exuded gentle warmth

That spread across my soul complete

Inviting me to doze

cat lady icon

I joined my cat in realm of  dreams

And  ain’t it a surprise

After a game of hide and seek

We both are chasing mice 🙂
