FUR-BRAINED FELINES

FUR-BRAINED FELINES

You Tube compilations

Of cat concentrations…

Mirrors and jumps

And into bath dumps,

Expose tintinnabulations!

SPRINGTIME RHYMING COUPLETS

SPRINGTIME RHYMING COUPLETS

(Basically…two related lines that end with the same sound…!)

Tidy gardens waiting for

Someone to sit down and snore.

Masonry froggie sits for hours,

Hoping for  a load of flowers!

Variegated leaves undimmed

Exponentially fill in.

Fruit tree florals gradually fade

But garden visitors are “made in the shade”.

Poison ivy finds its niche,

Valient gardeners scratch an itch.

Lilac bushes flower strong…

Robins sing a perfumed song.

Hummingbirds among flowers flit,

Nesting eggs to deposit.

Open windows screen in cats

Chattering at birds (what’s with that?).

Felines doing no dread crime…

Lounging with no thought of time.

Rumbling of motorcycle “gangs”…

Distant thunder on our peace hangs.

(A Slight Change of Pace!)

Softly singing afternoons,

Slower paced old brides and grooms…

One or the other has gone Home

Singing throught the chores alone.

Little dogs sleep inside,

Unless Master will take a ride!

Skyward we hear every blade

Of propeller’s progress made.

Stillness calms our inner ear

In this tranquil rural time of year!

REDHEADS AND CATS

REDHEADS AND CATS

It is said that redheads and felines—

At least certain lines…

Have common ancestors

So say male “suggesters”,

Who like hot redheads just fine.

But scientifically,

Redheads are more likely to be…

Genetic Neanderthal,

Not thrilling at all

But the myth has more popularity.

Some claim redheads haven’t souls,

Just made for THEM living hot coals…

Silliness will reign

In animals whose brain

Is solely used to curl the toes!

I happen to like both kinds,

As long as either one doesn’t mind….

Being respected for

Who they are and more

Specifically individuals to which I’ll be kind.
