Soaring through Salford Skies

#Salford #Birds #Blue #Skies

24th May 2020

Swiftly flying through the blue

a whole host of feathered friends

lift their wings and soar through the air

for while the humans stay indoors

only the odd cat need be looked out for as they

roll about and enjoy the summer air

dancing around the tree tops and saying hello through the windows

Rolling on in

Salford, Monday 4th May

It’s early morning, as i rise

and the street is busy to my surprise

for waking up the chorus (Dawn)

a pussy cat, a little forlorn

He’d spent his time, with his pals last night

playing around under the street lights

but now Ra is up, it has to be said

this furry old cat wants in for his bed

His stomach is full, thanks to a friend on the street

corned beef from a can – a most tasty treat

but his thoughts turned to breakfast, as on street he did play

so off to the garden , he began to make way

And up is his owner, so he’s through the back door

and slowly he goes off to his bed on the floor

so while humans are out, with meetings they keep

our furry old pussycat, is in bed, sound asleep

Sentry

#writeclub #sentry #cat

Sat outside the house

expectations – minimal

No – one is going to get past this clever cat

they will get an awful shock if they try from those

really pristine clipped claws

you think he’s a house cat – he’s more of a tiger!

Memories of a Tabby Cat

Salford, 23rd October 2019

#Octpowrimo #cat #Memories

They called you crazy – but you were quite a character,

king of the garden and the dining room floor

ignoring the cat food – for sardines or cod

and eating fish batter – which I found rather odd

got into a fuss if little ones picked you up

but clawed for attention – worse than a pup

playing with wool balls – attending your brain

then jumping out th’window – into spring rain

You didn’t like little uns pulling your tail

but would destroy others dinners beyond the pail

dashing to your sleep spot and blanket to hide

hoping you wouldn’t be hurled outside

Sat watching telly – on the rug in the house

occasionally playing with your catnip mouse

flicking your tail, when you wanted a feed

and hiding under the sofa when you did a bad deed

In Other Words – Delicious

A five line response to the picture provided for the prompt by Patricia’s Place @ https://patriciasplace.me/

perfectly pampered puddytat

ponders whats for tea

perhaps chicken or pork, or maybe – beef ?

his belief – but today his wish

is a big plate of fish

Duplicate

Is that one cat…or two? – Duplikat by inky

#fowc #duplicate

It’s like someone had put your cat

into the photocopier

for where there was one cat

looking for his lunch

there now was another

Spill

#Fowc #Kitchen #Spill

Some say “You can’t cry over spilt milk”

put into context – when that milk

is in a chocolate pudding – and its

landed on the kitchen floor – tears will flow as

lapping it up – instead of you – is your pet pussycat

Curious

#fowc #fandango #curious #cat #kitten #wool

Ball of wool, red

Curiosity might be what killed the cat, but

up halfway on the stairwell

rolling about in grandma’s knitting

is a furry little fellow

on a hunt for the big woollen ball

up high of the pyramid

sat in the basket

Semantics

8th May 2019

#fowc #Definition #Meaning

Taken into consideration – what’s in a word

I mean – who came up with the

great idea to classify the indian pussy cat – a tiger

everybody knows he’s not your domestic tabby

reality is they cobbled together every cat – big or small – and gave them names

Corpse

The deceased lay prone

Where it sent a message from beyond the skirting board

Everyone was surprised to find feathers,

Expecting to see a more furry resident in the gap

The only question…how did it get there?

In the corner, el gato sat innocent

Not saying a word, the

Goldfish kept a nervous silence
