NaPoWriMo Day 27,A Cat May& Many Hands Make

NaPoWriMo Day 27 : Today’s prompt is  to use the wondrous powers of the Internet to help you write, and I have a particular method in mind. Think of a common proverb or phrase — something like “All that glitters is not gold,” or “If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.” Then plug the first three words of the phrase into a search engine. Skim through the first few pages of results, collecting (rather like a poetic magpie) words and phrases that interest you. Then use those words and phrases as the inspirations (and some of the source material) for a new poem.


A Cat May (Warning)

A cat may, that is what everyone says

Owning a cat may shorten your days

Toxoplasma gondii parasite 

Insidious, unseen, malicious and quiet

Excreted escaping hoping to invade

Depressing the nerves with an unhappy parade

A cat may without any thoughts of harm

Can infest your blood and remove life’s charm.

In muscles and brain hides the  nasty nasty little parasites

They will push you , and push you to take your life.

So a beautiful cat may look at a king

But everyone in the castle should be aware what he is hiding within.


Many hands make Fractals Tactile

Many Hands make Fractals Tactile.

That’s sounds so hopeful it makes you smile.

Many hands clear the deck especially in the sun

The more of us together makes us more inclined to fun.

Many hands all wearing rings with diamonds will catch the light

The more of us there are, the sooner the job gets done right.

The more hands lifted to the sky reaching far reaching high

So remember Many Hands make Fractals Tactile and your heart fly.

    Oooh, the cat sat on the mat, doesn’t apply then, Sweet Willow, but the parasites sound particularly nasty, I always had fears what was hiding in mats and carpets when I had Bess and previously Tom, my male cat ( I know, a very imaginative name 😉 ) … but well done for completing the prompt, made me laugh out loud…… (and I am now scratching in earnest.. 😉 , ) xPenx

    Love them and especially the one on the cat – there is something mysterious about these furs balls. Many love them but I have my reservations.

    Peace, Eric

      I love cats but they are so very deep, alien almost. Unlike dogs who carry as many dangerous passengers but are open books who love you unconditionally! Dogs have owners cats have slaves!!

    Yeek, Willow, you’ve had me look at my sweet little kitty cat different!!

    To be honest, I read a Twitter of 7 reasons why pets are bad for you – and there was a lot to go yik at, so I’m rethinking anyhow.

    Love how you’re meeting these challenges. You’re great how you never run out of words!!!
