Micro Poetry

"She Reads Romance"  Original Digital Photo Manipulation

October Rain

Fresh croissants 
and too-hot coffee
have claimed the glory.
My knees are whisker-warm
and fleece-born.
The cat mews in the sleep
of his mouse-brown dreams.
I'm a red-eyed half-read
Joyce Carol Oates fantasy
and two lattes deep
in an early evening.
Clouds roll past
the window, a slow-motion boil.
 A storm teases the edges
of a blue-moon sky,
an October kind of rain.


Written for a lovely prompt over at Imaginary Garden.

  2. We've both written about rain today! And as I wrote my poem, the sun came out! I love the felinity of your poem, especially these lines:
    'My knees are whisker-warm
    and fleece-born.
    The cat mews in the sleep
    of his mouse-brown dreams.'

  5. I love those "mouse-brown dreams". Love the description of the reader, "two lattes deep in an early evening." Reading is one of the best pleasures during indoor weather.

  8. I like those "October rains", Stacy. About December the rains may be getting icy. I have read that Red and Brown colors are outside the cat's color perception. If so I think the mice will be gray-looking.
