The Online Dating Poem

Was thinking about this again just recently … and I was tidying up my blog last night and stumbled across this post … good reminder of why I am single.

to search and to find

There was an old woman, who lived in a house,
not out to the west, but down in the south,
she had some fine daughters, no dog but 2 cats,
6 pairs of shoes and a couple of hats.

She’d had a great husband, but alas he was dead
she’d built a secondhand house and little garden shed,
she was cuddly and round, with a crop of grey hair
she had a small silver car that she drove everywhere.

This little old woman, who lived with the cats
thought that it would be good if she could chat
with a man who might like her, and find her attractive
or failing that, might have funny narrative

She signed up online, and clicked all the boxes
she narrowed it down to weed out old foxes
but alas and alack, it just didn’t work
because all that she found was a big…

Emotography – Week 29/2016

Mental (2)

Regret

This is a kitten we fostered last weekend.  We nicknamed her “Mental”.  She had no concept of gentle play, those claws were used to full power. The sight and sound of her galloping through the house was like a rampaging fluffy slipper crossed with a belligerent rhinoceros. She never slept during the day, but constantly zig-zagged in front of  your feet when you walked. She climbed everything.   I have never met such a hyperactive, insomniac kitten.

She tried, tried really hard, to be adorable.  She sidled sweetly, and walking sideways on four legs has got to be a hard thing to do to amuse people, she rubbed vigorously around your legs purring, but woe to you if you picked her up – those claws soon came into action.  She spat, hissed and showed those claws to our cat , the very placid Limpet, and then added insult to injury by trying to eat Limpet’s dinner.

Much as we tried to bond with her – she declined to be loved for anything longer than 0.5 of a second.  Regretfully we took her back on Monday. I hope she finds the right home, it just wasn’t ours.

Emotography – Week 27/2016

Highland Cattle B&W

Groovy

“Take it easy, chill out, calm down,
everything is groovy”,
the beatnik of the cattle said, as she shook her shaggy head.

Wonderful Wednesday

“Because today, I think I’m leaning on the side of wonder.”
― Melina Marchetta, “Quintana of Charyn”

It’s easy to find wonder in just about anything – if you’re willing to look ….

Rusty Sentinel

I wonder, I wonder:  why are you there and what were you before?
I imagine Aliens invading, marching ashore,
or rocket-ships blasting off to explore,
was your metal skin shiny before rust ate your core?
I wonder, I wonder, just what you were.
