A Cat Meeting, a Fox, and an Artichoke
I've let myself slide with NaPoWriMo, so this will be a double post, and later tonight I'll write Sunday's post. I'll be using the PAD prompt for the first poem, and the 'Golden Shovel' prompt for the second.
Since Last Night's Rain
It's been grey all day, but dry, that's something,
and the fox came again, to her usual spot, napping,
Whilst the cats roam around in gardens, on roofs
Schedule a five o'clock meeting (I have proof).
They were four, in the front yard, two and two,
My two, of course, but two extra, too.
The fox is still sleeping, her babies wait
For her nightly return, after the hunt's gain.
A ray of sunlight paints half an artichoke
Sitting sadly on the side, oh,
It's a sad sight, to see this vegetable heart
Cast aside, as common potatoes are weighed.
But come down
and I'll show you, by
a simply made sauce, so
much taste will emerge, many
pieces to share, like green wings
From Joseph Hutchinson's 'Artichoke' poem.
