Words for Wednesday
Is a writing prompt that can be found at
Under the Porchlight
I’m a little late, but how could I resist this week’s words, containing as they do the name of a favorite cat?
Minute, aggrieved, instantaneous, burlap, satchel, purloined
(The true story of Satchel the cat.)
Empty laps, absent purrs had left us aggrieved
How could we solve this, could it ever be relieved?
It had been many months without creatures hirsute
And the places cats filled in our hearts not minute.
To the shelter we sallied, the hall filled with mews
To a cage in the corner, a source that would soothe.
In a nest of brown burlap, dark face and bright eyes.
Bond instantaneous, to my arms he did fly.
My heart was purloined as I held him that day
His bunkmate came with him, couldn’t leave him to stay.
For Satchel and
fresh air and soft laps
For us, years of contentment, just call us cat saps.
