Madi Moon Fog

The fog comes 
on little cat feet. 

It sits looking 
over harbor and city 
on silent haunches 
and then moves on.

Don't you just love that poem!!  We do!!
For those who have never been in a room as a cat enters...we are very very quiet
UNLESS we (me) are hungry and someone (TOGM) has not prepared our food.
PS crazy mom says the title of the post sounds like an Native American Indian Name
Madi Moon Fog.  MOL


  1. Beautifur phodography, Madi!

  4. We love the poem and your photos are just beautiful, Madi!

  5. The head peep loves that poem! She sometimes asks us why our little cat feet are more like a herd of elephants than silent like the poem.

  6. That moon was gorgeous. We think that poem is the best, Madi.

  7. Hi Mads, we are finally back online, sheesh!
    We do love that poem. We get a lot of fog, living on the coast.
    What a sweet photo of you on your mum's lap.

  8. Cousin Emma sleeps the same way on Lady. Lady thinks she is part cat. It has been very misty here too.

  9. what a really great POEM!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanx for sharing!!!

    No word on the wolf dog yet, but I've seen many find their way home, in part to Facebook.

    Oh yes, that poem is worth the repeating! ... and mum's moon shot is darn good! Glad you felt like rewarding her with a lap sit Madi. Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  11. I remember having to memorize that. Love the pics.

  12. I love our new name, Ms Moon Fog... spooky looking clouds and moon shots.. I have always liked this poem, it is one of only a few that I really like.

  13. Well, Madi Moon Fog...I thought maybe your mom changed your name or something before reading this. I love that poem! Your mom did pretty good taking photos of the moon too.

  14. That poem is a great description of Fog coming in! Love it, because we have lots of it on the coast. It sneaks in and a few minutes/hours later we are in brought sunshine! Thank you Madi Moon Fog.
    Hugs, Molly and Kathy

  15. You look comfy with your momma!

  16. Beautiful pictures Mandi!!! Happy you enjoyed sitting on your mom's lap!!!Keep posting more!!!

  17. That is a favorite poem of mine, Madi! I remember when I was a girl, we had to choose some poems and illustrate them, and I drew a picture of a kitty sitting and watching the fog for this poem. :-) I hope you have a beautiful day, Madi Moon Fog!

  18. You are lucky you got to stay in mom's lap. We had to deal with the fog monster!

  19. Hey, that's what the moon and the next day looked like for us, too! We like the fog because we like trying to see things pop out of it, like squirrels and other cat visitors, always so silent, so quiet.

  20. Dear Madi: We are starting to see some of your personality in our own EL's personality also, she likes us when she likes us, and loves us all the time, but still likes to keep her distance and it is always her choice to sit by Henri is another story, he is always napping with dad or laying on moms lap. Two very different personalities....Mom will post pictures this week, hopefully stella rose

  21. Madi that first moon picture almost looks like a ghost! we do love that poem
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & mabel

  22. We love that poem, though, two cats racing around aren't anything like quiet fog. Our cat cousins in VA have been called the Rolling Thunder....bwahaahaa!

    Great photo Madi Mom. SHE usually messes us those photos.

  23. I DO love that poem! Your Mom got great moon pictures. The pinkish hue is special, very nice!

  24. We didn't want to come inside the nights of that full moon:) Ciara used to walk like cat, very lightly on her paws and you might not even hear her coming. But she is still dragging her back feet from that darn medicine. That really IS a great poem that has been so popular for so very long.

    No fog here today, just bright sunny skies and delightful temps.

  25. madi...yur mom cap sured sum awesum fotoz oh de moon troo lee !!!♥♥♥♥ sure itz knot az gorgeouz az ewe, but it did try !!

  26. That's a great poem. We love the pics of the moon and the fog.

  27. We think that is a perfect Native American name for you.

  28. That is a nice poem. I don't know if it is because Brody has wide feet, but I can hear him coming a mile away :)

  29. Wowsers, those are beautiful Moon Shots Madi, your Mama did a great job!!!

  30. That's a great poem! Ghostwriter has been seeing fog at night when she drives home from work lately.

  31. My mom has always loved that "cat feet" poem!
    We love the moon shots, but of course we like the ones of YOU bestest of all!
    Yours sincerely,
