This month, I’m tagging along with Christie, Margaret, Jone, Mary Lee, and other writers to play with poetry. I’ll be using haikubes, metaphor dice, magnet poetry, blackout poetry, spine poetry, found poetry, and anything else that catches my fancy, including paint chips!
Cat rests in the early morning sun
Seeks warm gold in the bluebird morning
Stretches into his sunbeam sanctuary
Morning hush between birdsong.
I originally had a longer poem planned that would include many places cats might sleep. I thought it would be an interesting way to use some of the quirkier colors I found: Shopping Bag, Clay Figurine, Dante’s Cardigan, Basket of Bobbins, Vintage Satchel. But I scratched the rest of the lines I wrote in favor of the more focused moment.
