Each Wednesday, Margaret at Reflections on the Teche shares a photo that inspires a “small poem.” I love photos, and I love small poems, so I’ve been saving this idea for a Wednesday slice. To add an extra challenge, I closed my eyes, scrolled through my camera roll, and committed to writing a poem about whatever photo my finger landed on. Of course given the number of cats on my camera roll, there was a very good chance it would be a cat. And so it was. It was not the most flattering photo, so I included a few more that highlight Oliver’s particular charm. The subject himself was stretched out in my lap while I wrote a poem about him–purring nonstop.
