Tanka: Furry Ball Of Trouble - Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

My catastrophic

soft pawed dignified feline

daughter of great Bast

loves to tumble from high places

crashing loudly when she lands

    Ed,
    I've shared life with several cats but our current cat has an equilibrim problem.She was abused by her previous owner and she is an adoption from the animal shelter.Yesterday she jumped up on the bookcase and knocked over the Zen meditation water fountain.That's what inspired me to write this tanka about her the many mishaps she caused.

    Hmmmm..I wonder how high are the places she tumbled... Is the persona something to do with you? Or is it you? heehehe! just guessing. Sounds like a sad humor. I just felt it. (Report) Reply
