My S-I-L Belinda has an eye for the interesting, the beautiful and the absurd and takes the most wonderful photos.
I love this photo of hers and thought it the perfect match to a poem that I wrote for Gabrielle Bryden’s Close Shaves Week. Thanks, B. 🙂
the neighbour’s dog
has a lot
to say in the morning.
I imagine he entertains
the Vox Dogz with tales
of victorious nocturnal stoushes
with the white cat from across the road:
“A face like a chook’s bum
I tell ya rrrrhahahaharuffruff “
But I’ve seen him run
at the sight of her.
(Look, Tilly, no commas! 🙂 )
I love this! And it does pair perfectly with that pic!
A real sourpuss. 😀 thanks, Nancy.
I can see Tank with tail between legs…running away from his furry feline friend.
Oh, yes 😉 But that’s not how he tells it.
More please bb !!!!
Coming up. And, shortly, from B, too. 🙂
That cat has a fierce and merciless look on its face, as if someone has awoken it from a slumber. Lovely poem too, though if you read it to the cat, don’t it would crack a smile…
It certainly wouldn’t, Mabel. 🙂 it really looks pretty miffed with life, haha.
Loved the poem and delighted the pic fitted so well 🙂 B xxx
Hello B! 😀
I couldn’t possibly commant 🙂
Ha! Just as garrulous as Mac, BB. Wonderful poem. I love The Vox Dogz.
I wonder what they go on about, Kate. Same time every morning, all the dogs in the neighbourhood have a jolly good chat. Thanks 🙂
A poem and picture calculate to make us humans grin! Love it!
Always glad to bring a grin 😃 Thanks, Dor.
Absolutely brilliant! 😀
Thanks, Di. 😄 Imagining what he’s on about makes it bearable, haha.
Amazing what a difference a moustache makes to a face, Bb! Love the poem and pic.
Thanks, Adee. Weirdest cat I’ve ever seen. Also looks as if it’s wearing eyeliner. 🙂
Dogged opinion, Feline Truth. 😀
Well done! 🙂
I’ve been playing with different poetic forms on my Implied Spaces blog: Prose poems. tanka-haibun and Google-translation free verse. “One blog is never enough” he told his Mass Media Addiction counsellor, between manic fits of posting. 😀
At last my internet is working again – what a fantastic photo to pair with your poem (and thanks for the pingback 🙂 )
Loved this BB
Thanks, Jo 🙂
