Thoroughly Poetic Thursday:U

Uncle's Story
by Madi(son) D. Cat

Under another roof in another time
A man called Uncle was the brother of Dad not mine.
I know this is true 'cause mom told me so.
Uncle was never ugly but always kind
He lived alone way up north in the land of
wind and snow.
A place I'm sure I'll never go.
Until one day he decided he needed to fill his house with furs, fun and things that go bump in the night.
He ran out into the wind and snow to a shelter where he saw a light.
Two furry sisters of the Feline species were the answer to his plight.
He said I want to give these two kitties a home.
No longer will we 3 ever be alone.
The End except for the picture 
When they were 10 they moved from the land of wind and snow
to  NC.   Where they lived to be 17 (Gudrun) and 18 (Ursula) years old

As you all know, we are thoroughly enjoying Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
Last week our huggy puggy furiends Hazel and Mabel from Idaho Pug Ranch

Madi you need to put all your wonderful poems together in a book
Hazel & Mabel

Well guess what we did..we are gradually getting all our poems into a poetry blog only called
Poetry in Motion here, the link is also on the menu bar under our header picture.
So eventually we will have them all in one location then we can print them in
