"Loaf"


so much love contained
within
one
mono-syllabic
word
"Loaf"
kitty
over-fed
stripes stretched
well beyond capacity
you fill my arms
and then some
when i hold you
there is barely room
for my chin
your size has more than twice doubled
since you were a little kit
i could not help but look into you
your gaze so steady you brought me in
and i beheld the heart of a lion
Right then I envisioned us
together, growing fatter and
very very very old.

because cats can't write poetry (yet) as they have no opposable(forgive the slaughtered
spelling which alas, poor spellcheck couldn't rememdy) thumbs
Melissa A Howells Meloo of Tilt-a-World

Loaf would be pleased to know that 284 readers
have come to know her through this poem.
She was a source of great joy and much
happiness to Julia and her family.
Now Loaf is with the Angels and most likely
hard at work acquiring her set of wings.
