illuminations of a cat by Regina Green

strike out boldly
learn from the collective
beware of hand-held treats
always appear negotiable then
walk away with tail held high
mice and high heels are fair game
scratching behind the ears can be
used against you
you can take the loner persona a bit too far
the best part of the day is reserved for
sleeping it away
you can say i'm yours and i won't disagree but
i'll keep you up at night wondering where i am
i am beautiful but you know that
it's harder than it looks

Regina Green, USA

All so very true as mine is deep asleep in front of me. He is some character and it sounds as though you too have known some. Charming! Thanks,

As a cat lover, I can say with great confidence that you batted 100 with this observation of our feline friends.

Never been a cat lover, but this was a tenderly-written and suprisingly pleasant verse.

Pink white, black, blue and more choice on color selecting as for Moncler Auburn Shiny Khaki Mens Jacket. When you put on moncler women’s jackets in your favorite color, you will be out-standing among the crowd.

One no-fail method for breaking out of blogger’s block is to pick another blog that you really like and say nice things about it.

Seriously, that’s it.

Now, you don't have to start with my blog...

...but I would like all you talented writers, that may have come to "writers/bloggers block" to start somewhere!


I realized that even if you were completely stuck in the doldrums of blogger’s block, you could always pick another blog to say something nice about. It’s like an instant post formula! We sometimes need a change of pace, a refreshing alternative, new inspiration from literary exploration and admiration of great authors will do the trick!

Has your mother ever told you that if you couldn’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all? Well, this is the same idea, but flipped on its side: if you can’t say anything at all, then say something nice! Not only is this a sure-fire method to come up with an idea for a blog post, you will also make somebody’s day...I'm starting with you...

You are great and talented, i really enjoyed reading your posts. You really gave me something to think about. You have a book inside of you. I hope you can read my posts and be inspired to write, as i have become, viewing your blog. Take care of yourself, God bless you and your family.
