Have You Seen the Cat

Waltmarie Poetic Form-
10 line poem, any subject, even numbered lines are 2 syllables and form their own poem when read separately. Odd lines are longer with no specific syllable count.

Have you seen the cat

It may have been the stomping kids that scared her –
hiding
Or the loud bang of a breaking balloon –
small bits
That sent her running for a place of quiet –
of peace
Waiting until all children are asleep with dreams of play –
to share
Before she cautiously climbs out from behind the couch to sit –
with you

Moon Lit

At B&Ps Shadorma and Beyond, Bastet shared the background of the Shadorma poetry form and challenged us to write our own using some of the ‘rules’ of classic haiku.

Moon Lit

Hunter’s moon
lights the barren field
where we met
last summer
rabbits scurry off to hide
are you hiding too
