But for blue dot
Blind cat silently sits
His wish for a loving, good home
While in a local bank I stopped to check out the tags on the Giving Tree they had set up. The Tree was to provide Christmas Gifts to our local Juliette’s House, which is a place dedicated to helping abused children.
One Tag said “Colored Pencils”. Since I am into drawing and coloring I chose that one to fulfill.
Looking further my eye caught sight of a tag that said “Dog and Cat Figurines”. I chose that tag for my daughter to fulfill as she was a Dog/Cat lover, being an owner of 4 dogs and 2 cats.
The Small Cat Figurine she donated to Juliette’s House was all white except it had a very small blue dot on its fur. We thought it was unique and that perhaps the child that received it would use his/her imagination to create a story as to how the blue dot came to be, as I did in this Tanka poem.
Any of you poets want to add to this Cat’s story? If so, share your imaginative poem or thought in the comment section.
