Biography of Cat Tiger
Cat Tiger is a name given me by Astrology. I was born a Leo in the Year of the Tiger. I went to Catholic schools, except the Art schools, through college. I married, raised two exceptional children of each sex and worked commercially as an artist and copy writer. I have written a couple of poems a year, a few of which I tried to publish. These are some I'd like to share in order to show those folks I've criticized on PoemHunter that I'm no genius. Writing good poetry is difficult to say the very least, but that shouldn't stop us because, good or bad, it's often interesting, even educational communication.

Your whisper pounds my heart's rood
Rushing throbbed tsunamis throughout
So that the pulsing of my tepid blood
Expands even whisper into a shout.
Truly, our spirits have met before
Settling by parts in others we've known
Or rising from forests and familiar lore
To caress as a breeze softly blown.
