The Sound of One Hand Typing

Now, everyone together: Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww…..

We got our first cat on New Year’s Eve, 1977, and since that time we’ve had at least one cat, and often more (on occasion, many more). Right now, we’re back to where we started, with just one, and have decided that this is it for a while. When she goes, we’re going to wait at least a year before we consider adopting again. We have a lot of things we want to redo in the house, most notably the kitchen and the bathrooms, and, with workmen walking in and out, we don’t want to have to lock a newcomer into a room, lest he or she dash out the door, or, as was the case the last time we had the bathroom done, disappear into the walls of the house and be lost forever (actually, the one that did that found her way out, but…

Living Alone in a Cabin

Living alone in a cabin 
Wondering who might stop over 
Waiting all day by the window 
Hoping someone would come to call. 

Watching the clouds in the blue sky 
Living alone in a cabin 
Thinking that life was just perfect 
Never wanting to tell the truth. 

For hours and hours you wait so still 
Until someone can find you here 
Living alone in a cabin 
Finding solitude relaxing. 

Suddenly your wish is answered 
When you hear a knock on the door 
Open to see who’s to visit 
Living alone in a cabin.

Write a poem in the form of a “to-do list.” The fun of this prompt is to make it the “to-do list” of an unusual person or character.

The Cat makes a list

Well the Cat in the Hat 
was up to his tricks 
looking for kids 
to bring into the mix.  
He had a big list 
of things left to do 
like tidy his bag 
and polish his shoe. 
He also had things 
like talk to the fish, 
walk on a ball,
balance a dish, 
take a long walk, 
Sing a new song, 
play a new game, 
the list was real long. 
The Cat sat to think 
about what to do first 
he decided a drink  
who help quench his dry thirst 
When all of a sudden 
he finally found 
a book and a pen 
to write it all down. 
He wrote down his list 
in a second or two 
He loved the red ink 
and also the blue. 
He jotted and scribbled 
until the paper was full 
He put on his hat 
and gave it a pull 
He went on his way 
to find some kids to play 
and decided to leave 
the list to some other day.
