Took this photo of my family’s pets, (grandson and grand-daughter’s cats) all sitting together seeming to be having a meeting of the minds–probably regarding whose attention they could grab to give them some food in their empty bowl! 😃
(Tribute to Morris, my grandson’s cat, who is about 12 years old now. He got her as a baby kitten and though she was female he. Ames her Morris because she looks just like the famous Morris on Nine Lives. She has truly been a wonderful family cat.)
Marilyn is my grand-daughter’s dog. When the big tree in the family’s backyard was knocked down by storms this winter Marilyn chose to run up to the end of the remaining stump and stand as if on guard!
(Instead of being “King of the Hill” she is “Queen of the Tree”! 🙂
She seems to mimic her daddy, Jack, whom we call “The Sentry or Guard Dog”
Click here to read “Guard Dog” a poem which I wrote about Jack previously) 🙂
This Sweet Sixteen poem was written for my other grand-daughter who is turning 16 soon.
I am going to use this for her birthday card.
This is my first time using the Minute form and it was quite a challenge because of the rhyme and syllable count.
I don’t know why it is called “Minute” poem! It certainly took me more than a minute to write this poem! 🙂
