Today's Adventure

Tinker

Same poem, written in two different interpretations of the same invented stanzaic form.

Argonelles the WCD simple version.

The Chase is On

Molly
petite and feminine
young house kitty ventures outside
tentatively explores wide eyed
trusts she can come back in

Feral
large shabby tabby Tom
observes my pretty feline's play
and gives her chase, she is his prey
as she runs home to Mom.

Yeowl
slipping on the wood floor
huge furry cat two feet behind
I screamed, he stopped, he changed his mind                                             
He turned and ran out the door.

Frightened
little animal mine
followed me the rest of the day
took a while to begin to play
but now doing just fine.
          ~~Judi Van Gorder 
 
Argonelles with refrain Rainbow Communication version

Today's Molly Adventure

Molly
petite and feminine
young house kitty ventures outside
tentatively explores wide eyed
petite and feminine 

Molly
stalked by large tabby Tom
observes my pretty feline's play
and gives her chase, she is his prey.
stalked by large tabby Tom.

Molly
she slipped on the wood floor
ran inside with him right behind
I screamed, he turned, he changed his mind.
He slipped on the wood floor.

Molly
safe inside with her Mom
followed me the rest of the day
took awhile to begin to play
safe inside with her Mom.
