Day 15 OctPoWriMo Off Prompt: The Non-Poem

~*~ ~*~ ~*~ 

The Non-Poem by February Grace

I cannot write today, 
she said,
the sky is falling in;
the phone is pinging
my ears are ringing
and all I want is sleep

There'll be no poem today,
she said,
there's too much on my mind;
then her thoughts came
pouring out
just like the rain outside

On rainy days like this, 
she said,
when everything feels wrong
we need to find our 
words the most
...and that was all she wrote.

Day 14 OctPoWriMo: Off prompt... "Cat"

Off prompt. Our cat gave us quite a scare today so he has been the only thing on my mind. He's going to be okay but it will be a long couple of weeks while his back strain heals. Pain meds three times a day...and no jumping. Yikes. He's 13 and very stubborn, this is going to be rough.

In honor of my dear little faithful buddy, this haiku:

Cat by February Grace

Silken fur bright eyes
love rumbles through every breath
a fine noble friend

See you tomorrow...
