Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Angel Sammy and brudder Teddy

Today's 4 word challenges are
window, wink, worry wiggle

Today's Poem title is
From my Window
subtitle: You birds better be glad I'm a house cat
by Madison D. Cat 

From my window I spy
birds galore and chippers. 
And of course the nasty squirrels who destroy Dad's 
planters and make him cry.
Often to my surprise and glee my friend the red
Cardinal wink(s) at me as he chows down on sunflower
seeds and suet without a worry.
Me thinks he might not realize a fierce cat I be.
The tiny chickadee is quick to take seed in a flurry.
The chippers are by far the best at scurrying.
The robin and his misses on the ground do roam.
They hop and skip about, their single mission is to quickly find
a worm that wiggles to take home.


  1. Hari om
    Brava brava our diva of poetry!!! Hugs and shiskeries YAM-aunty xxx

  2. that is a super poem! and it has even tasty parts... such a roasted berd is sure not bad... but I wouldn't say no to a worm, they can be yummy too ;o)

  3. Another striking poetic effort there Madi.

    Toodle pip!

  4. You create the bestest poems, Madi! That is quite the birdie feeding station for you to keep an eye on!

  5. Great poem with all those words. We love the picture with all the colorful birds. Good one. Have a super day.

  6. wiggly worms and HARK there is a flamingo AND an elephant out there ms Madi... they better be glad you are contained behind your window

  7. Laughing at your subtitle! A most excellent poem. The chippers and the squirrels are wearing out their welcome here. They want in the house and that won't do!You have a lovely little tree... ♥

  8. Poor Dad, I know he works hard on those planters.
    I had to push sticks into some of mine to keep wave out of them. Wasn't exactly beautiful, buy at least it kept him from digging in them.

  9. Bravo Madi! That's a terrific poem and I could just hug you for staying indoors and letting the birds enjoy their seeds in peace :)

  10. That is a great poem and an ode to the birdies in your yard. We love watching the birds at our feeders too.

  11. soooooooo beautiful, I've seen some really nice catieres added to windows and such, wish i could spell the word, lol,,,, I'm Lucky/or rather Silly Dilly and Banita in a way i guess, although some wildlife not so much, I live 1000' off the road with pasutures surrounding my place, so my kitties get to go out during the day. Although somedays I have to call fairly loud for that SILLY DILLY. WHY do cats sit around the corner and ignore????
    take care, and Have A GREAT BLESSED THANKSGIVING....

  12. Madi my sweet friend, this is one of your BESTEST EVER poems. We love it.....and as usual, you got all those prompts in. You are an amazing poet!

  13. Well done Madi! Since you are not an outside cat maybe your pawrents should bring some birdies into the house so you can "play" with them!
