In case you are wondering why no September poem was posted, it was because we moved on August 3, and have been busy  unpacking.  I am posting the poem for October early. The poem is titled, MEMORIES OF A SPECIAL CAT. Mia was a cat who belonged to my niece, Rebecca.  I loved Mia as much as Rebecca did.


Mia, meowing ever so gently to announce her presence
Slowly walking toward me
Brushing her body against my leg
Communicating with subtle movements of her tail.

Mia, finding her spot in the room
Stopping to groom a moment
Stretching, stretching, stretching
Rolling on her side and soulfully looking back at me.

Mia, making contact with one of her toys
Pouncing on a favorite
Waiting for me to play her game
Rewarding me with a look and a swish of her tail.

Mia, suddenly stopping her play
Strutting back and forth in front of a recliner
Quickly claiming it as her own
Circling, snuggling, purring.

  1. Hello, Rose; Thank you for sending me a copy of your book. I read it in two sessions, and liked it very much. Thank you for sharing your compelling story with us. I like the look of your book, too; and am glad to know of the publishing house that created it for you. I had a nightmare (including being censored!) with the first publisher I worked with (Xlibris); so for my second book, I worked with CreateSpace (part of Amazon). I will follow you, now that I know of you, and look forward to reading more of your work. Thank you again for writing your amazing story of all seven of you! What an accomplishment all of you reached in your lives! I love all of the Wisconsin authors who have experienced such diversification. I’m proud to say that I am also a Wisconsinite, even though I live in Illinois now. My heart is still up there.
