We Grow Together

We Grow Together

You leaned over me, to shade me from harm
You poised your strengthened arms for true support
Hoisted, crawled up to your bough, strong with arms 
You welcomed me into your nature fort

Your girth reminds me of my own true strength
When life of wanders strengthened my own thighs
Your size reminds me of my life’s own length
How when we grow together we reach skies

Dare we plan a life, as my journal fills
To plan a destiny, filled with hope sought
Your own ancestors pulp gave me the will 
To document a life well-worn from thought

Together we are ready for our cause
You present to me ready without pause

Remote Control

Remote Control

Sarenda landed a remote spot on the edge of awareness, but close to comfort

She found a picnic table to start each day with coffee and cereal before logging in

Scenery was often inspiring to her thoughts and she cranked out many warm words

Some were rather hot, even spicy, but not too untame for modern species

Cats got your tongue, ran through her mind in remembrance of teaseful times

She found her claim on this space to be just the right amount of remote control

…..

Board Meeting of the Council of Cats

Board Meeting of the Council of Cats

Mister Blaccatto led the board meeting of the Catpuccino Cat Club

Fluffy Fern who always sat close to Mister B called the club together

After minutes were read, Ms. Goldie suggested that the snacks should soon arrive and strutted in a restless fuss

Mr. Knee Sox kept to the edge of the board to allow for the first leap to treats

After the house stirred with two footed stomps the board commenced to a unified yowl

Meeting adjourned as they all ran to their bowls
