Purrsday Poetry: Be a Cat

Hi everyone,

Please find below the latest entry in Purrsday Poetry by Léa:

BE A CAT

We do not have nine

Only one – allocated

Much shorter than you think

Racing – a comet in the night

 

Be a cat

Think of the graceful feline

Encountering something new

The nose begins to twitch

Whiskers poised and ready

 

Be a cat

Curiosity in all things

Absorb all you can

Touch it, feel it,

Make love to it

Be a cat

 

Take pleasure in your body

It’s keeping you together

Treat it kindly

Any shortcomings are cerebral

Be a cat

 

Drink this life in

Champagne – tickles, savor it

Take a lesson from felines

Relish it all, retrace pleasure

Head first, into the new

Be a cat

 

Rejoice in the night

Solitude, darkness, peace

Wondrous world to explore

All, different – alive

Be a cat

 

Don’t waste it

No feline ever would

Satisfy your urges

Le chat never postpones

Sharing pleasure –

Makes the world go around

Be a cat

 

Only the feline

Curls up

Relives her pleasures

Then rises to do them

Again, again and again

Be a cat 

Bisous,

Léa

Purrsday Poetry: ENERGY & TEMPERATURE #TANKA

Hi everyone,

Please find below the latest entry in Purrsday Poetry by floridaborne:

Temperature rises,

fights begin, energy spent,

a tenuous truce.

Heated moments may shatter

a friendship beyond repair.

Purrsday Poetry: Tail in Three Cats

Hi everyone,

Please find below the latest entry in Purrsday Poetry by Rachel M E McKenzie:

Tail in Three Cats

Cat One

TAV

I will always regret

the closed door

I made you stay behind.

Chained, mechanical, pained,

like me.

Clockwork we performed well

You and I

to the master’s needs.

His need to control me, who he relied on

and you who relied on no-one.

You would break your shift pattern

O’ cat named Tav

and defecate at an ungodly hour.

The master would rise like vapour

and punish you.

Years later, o little creature of nature, I wonder

did you take on the tyrant for me?

I will always wish I had you let you loose sooner,

into the neighbours garden, over the flower covered wall

and onto paradise.

I stayed on but cheered that little you could

no longer interrupt hell at 2 in the morning.

I think you reached the blue mountains and red sea

and called on me to open the closed door

leaving Nothingness for hope.

Cat Two

QUINTO

Your master Quinto was gentle as dew

and he talked of waiting on you

to come out of his cupboard

where you were leaving your scent

all over his walking boots and dress shoes

Shoes that walked over to me

almost on tip toe

So quiet I might have dismissed them

But that he made me laugh

And laughing is sore with stitches on wounds.

Later when he introduced me to you Quinto

and though he called you semi-feral

You would curl up in the crook of my knee

and celebrate with me

the wonder of being free.

Cat Three

OSCAR

Suave.

Apocalyptic white with a kiss curl of red hair.

You stood in a pool of light

at the opening of our bedroom door.

Jumped on our bed and interviewed us.

Statues.

We lay perfectly still

You prodded and pulled

Looked us both in the eye

then made off with a happy sigh.

Stayed.

Awhile you enhanced our home

but there were others to whom you choose to roam.

The night before you left you lay close to me.

As if to be sure I wouldn’t stop you.

Stopped?

When I knew the cats that had set me free

that would be a liberty.

So you went to Methusala and his cat-loving wife

and loved them into an extraordinary long and happy life.
