  • Kitten

    Freeze tense pounce
    Grab hold bounce
    Kitten smitten with play
    Adventures today

    Snakes writhe on shoe
    Not just laces to chew
    Shiny chase reflection
    Life joyous confection

    Trail of devastation
    As I explore my location
    Everything that move
    Joins my playful grooe

    Owner picks up to scold
    Bite the hand that holds
    As I wrestle with fingers
    He laughs bitemarks lingers

    From floor to top of curtain pole
    Oh dear net curtain has bigger holes
    Hmmm seem to be out of luck
    Wait for owner as up I am stuck

    Meow I call as he looks
    Big sigh as claws unhook
    He puts me on the floor
    Scamper away once more

    Perky ears and big eyes
    Ineperienced not wise
    Hey a box I must get in
    Gerroff let me go you can't win

    Free again spin around chase my tail
    Turn spin other way but still fail
    Lie down for a rest I am tired
    After a bit I will resume hotwired

    PP, as a cat owner who once had 5 cats at one time and who has also experienced on numerous occasions the delight and frustration of attempting to manage a kitten, I salute you dearly for this wonderful piece of writing. Just Lovely!!!!!

      most i have everhad was 4 cats atone times. Kittens are a joy but they keep you on your toes.My four cats and the rabbit passed away in a 12 month period not long ago. At some point there will be a kitten here

    Quite fun and as a cat owner easy to relate to. Very good, Parkinsonspoet!

      PP, we are animal lovers. With 2 new pups we both should have plenty of material. Enjoyable read PP!

        This is delightful, Pp! I especially like Snakes writhe on shoe Not just laces to chew.
        I think you got into the kitten's mind nicely there.
        I once had so many cats, I didn't know what to do. Then, three of them had litters! We were in the high teens for a while, until we found homes!

          They are very unique individuals. We have four right now (which is two too many for me, but I wouldn't get rid of any one of them.)

        delightful poem Parkinsonspoet ! i loved picturing this. your 'voice' was darling! NOT being a cat person as i have a severe allergy i shy away even from reading about them most times! (wink wink)
        So glad I made an exception this time!
