Tag Archives: caught and held



Writing the other evening

In our Common Room…

Where the house Wi-Fi signal

Is strong enough to use.

Heard soft talking

To someone nearby…

Almost like the answer

Was  a cat’s soft cry.

Susanne came ’round the corner,

In her hands was “Mini-Mouse”…

A mostly black and white feline

Escaping from her house.

Mini looked at me

I looked at her…

Being caught and held like that

She didn’t even purr!

She has my commiseration

,I’ve wanted to cut and run…

But perhaps like her I would prefer

Some exploration!
