Tale Weaver – #303 – Confusion – November 26th

Confusion with the Cat: A Cat in the Hat FanFiction Tale

The Cat in the Hat knew nothing at all 

About raising kids, the big or the small 

The one thing he knew that he knew he’d get right 

Was to keep the kids busy from morning to night. 

He kept lots of tricks and toys up his sleeve 

He always made sure a clean house he did leave 

But the kids never knew when he was coming or going 

He’d come when the sun shone and with the wind blowing. 

The biggest confusion they had with the Cat 

Was they wondered what he kept up in his red and white hat. 

He said he had toys and fish and some games 

And animals and clowns and roasting marshmallow flames. 

But if he had all those things hidden way up inside 

Did he put them in there to keep private or hide? 

The kids knew the Cat would come back some new day 

With all of the things they needed to play.

Walk Away

Walk away before you are able 

To see the mistakes, you’ve made 

Along the way, you can stop 

And retrieve the memories 

Because they are what brings you back

Ode to Sue’s Haiku

A blanketed veil of moisture obscures the Orb of Night
At a distance morn’s bleached hues detectable at a distant perspective
Scorching star lifts up sans cognizance
A regenerated diurnal course ensues.

The Cat brings Cake

Today the Cat stopped by at noon 
he knew it was the day 
the children’re home and not at school 
they’d want to laugh and play. 

He thought he’d bring a tasty treat 
to start the day off right 
A cupcake full of sweet sugar 
He could eat in one big bite. 

The children were so happy when 
the Cat knocked on their door. 
They had their books and writing out 
laid all out on the floor. 

The Cat told them to clean it up 
today was a day for fun 
The children knew the cat was right 
In a minute they were done. 

They took a blanket off the bed 
and laid it out real straight. 
The three of them sat down right there 
The three of them just ate. 

When the food was good and gone 
the Cat he began to cry 
The kids were full and needing a nap 
They quickly said goodbye. 

As the Cat left there he said to them
“See you soon on another day!”
He said he’d come another time 
to have more fun and to play.

From my desk: 11/23/2020

Christine Bialczak, 2020

Today is the day that I married Bob, 24 years ago. He isn’t here to celebrate this anniversary but I know he is with me. I also believe that he sent David for me, to love me and take care of me like he did, since he is gone. A bittersweet memory of such a beautiful day.

On our Anniversary

Separated my suns, moons, and seas
Forever bonded by love and memories
Love will always be in my heart
For our time together

I am thankful for what I have been given, then, now, and always….

Nonsense

When I listen to the wind 
I hear sounds from my home 
sounds so soft and tender 
like big bubbles upon new foam.  

The gratitude I hear right now 
helps feed my hungry mind 
there is no simple frill or vibe  
no, nothing of that kind. 

And so I lay upon my bed 
of silver sheets and spread 
while all the sounds around me 
flow softly through my head.   

And when I find my road is done 
I will not mince a word 
I finally put my finger on it 
My family says I’m absurd.

Waiting

I wait and watch  
knowing that you are out there 
wanting to know where I am 
and what I am doing. 

I wait and watch 
knowing that when you find me 
you will want more of me 
than I am willing to give. 

I wait and watch 
knowing that I cannot escape you 
for you know where I go 
and I cannot hide. 

I wait and watch 
knowing you hold me captive 
to bid your calling and suit your needs 
and I will never be alone.  

I wait and watch 
and you are always there.

Fried Ice cream

This is the prompt for November writing prompts at this blog: https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2020/11/01/november-writing-prompts-2/

It’s a yummy time for having 
a delicate dessert 

It’s got a crispy outside 
Watch out, the flames will hurt! 

They light the thing on fire 
to burn the alcohol 

But once you eat the outside 
the rest will melt and fall. 

Enjoy the whole decision 
of what you chose to pick 

Fried Ice cream is a secret 
A sort-of fried food icy trick.

Being Creative

I took the fabric and made a slit 
I tried to trace the design that fit 

I printed the face right on the back 
I didn’t want the crease to make a crack 

I sewed on the lace to edge the sleeve 
I tried tiptoeing softly as I started to leave 

I still have my ideas of what to make 
An infinite number of ideas at stake 

I try to embrace those feelings I know 
And complete my project before I go.
