PROMPT Poetry Challenge #8 - Cats

Discussion in 'INSPIRING MUSES' started by Fluffy, Jan 16, 2011.

  1. [​IMG]

    This challenge is simply to write a poem about anything to do with cats. It can be any sort of style, as long or short as you want, and write as many as you wish. I encourage you to use BBcodes to make your poem look pretty.

    If you have a cat for a pet, feel free to write a poem about his/her personality, or perhaps a habit of theirs that annoys you, if not makes you smile. I'd enjoy seeing a picture of them included with the poem, too!

    I'll even write a poem dedicated to my own kitty cat in a separate post. I want to see some other members' poems before I do that, though. ;3
  2. Mynona is a kitty
    and she isn't very smart.
    I'd say it was a pity
    but her fur is fashion art.

    If you throw a tiny mouse
    she'll run and fetch it fast.
    She'll be the terror of your house
    and no curtain will ever last.

    I really love my furry beast,
    she's as soft as a cat can be.
    I couldn't hate her in the least,
    she is the right cat for me!
  3. Cat's grace.

    Silent, supple, dodging through the rain
    long furred legs stretch out to find
    precarious footholds on the roof,
    Or in the basement, amongst the shelves.

    Yellow eyes flare up
    the only thing to see
    Where the cat once was
    There is nothing now.

    Until you find it,
    spread out near the hearth
    hiding all the signs
    of cat's grace.

    (S'not much...but I thought I should give it a shot.)

    Ember is a dorky cat
    her antics are the best
    She likes sleeping on the bathroom mat
    which makes her quite a pest

    She mewls everyday
    for her bowl of Fancy Feast
    This feline always gets her way
    else she turns into a beast

    I'm scarred from head to toe
    because of her evil nails
    Even when I tell her "NO!"
    resisting bloodshed fails

    I call this cat my daughter
    I know that's very strange
    She even has a loving Father
    who hopes she'll never change

    Ember only wants to play
    At night, she cuddles me
    All I have to say
    is my cat is very silly

    [RAINBOW]He loves to bite and scratch [/RAINBOW]
    [RAINBOW]But its just a game [/RAINBOW]
    [RAINBOW]Just don't challenge him to a match [/RAINBOW]
    [RAINBOW]Or you'll be walking away lame[/RAINBOW]
    [RAINBOW]So what can I say? [/RAINBOW]
    [RAINBOW]I love my boys [/RAINBOW]
    [RAINBOW]They chase my blues away [/RAINBOW]
    [RAINBOW]Even if they never stop making noise [/RAINBOW]

  6. You somehow managed to double post in a single post, I think...unless the repetition was intentional?
  7. No its not >:( Im' trying to use the Rainbow BB code but every time i do it deletes everything ,so i tried blink instead but its double posted. And when i go to edit there is no repeat GRRRR!
  8. Maybe make a mention of it in the bug thread, so Diana can have a look at it.
  9. It's a wonderful poem, nonetheless. n___n

    Sorry that the code's being a 'tard. Hrrrrm.
  10. Ha Ha! Never mind its working now :)

    I'm Glad you like it Fluffy, even though its pretty pathetic XD
  11. The moon lit marauder
    Awaken at dusk
    Stalking with claws in the night

    Eye's glowing yellow
    Tail kept tucked
    Waiting for the time to strike

    By dawns early light
    Shes captured her kill
    teeth clenched, it fell to her bite

    Dedicated to my cat KoKo, who hunts at night and leaves me dead creatures in the morning.
  12. Sharp claws
    Fearsome bite
    Soft paws
    They won't go down without a fight
    They follow their own laws
    And always think they're right

    From the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail,
    My Snowball is as black as night,
    Except for a few minor details:

    His belly has patches of white.

  14. White cat fur shining
    Eyes so bright full of wonder
    Paws silent as death

    My attempt for a haiku...
  15. When you think that I'm just cute,
    I'm actually ordering you,
    To do whatever I want,
    As soon as you come home from that car.
    You must pet me very often,
    Or I'll run you into the wall.
    When you use the bathroom,
    Your hands are doing nothing at all.
    Pick up that little device,
    And let me chase the dot.
    It's for my amusement, not yours,
    So why must you laugh a lot?
    When I claw your feet,
    It's only just for me.
    I don't care for the exclamations,
    It's time to get petting!
    Despite being your master,
    There's one thing I must admit.
    I never had someone like you,
    You're such a lovely pet.

  16. Companion
    Healer of a loneliness deep and true,
    With a soul and a mind I know she loves me too.
    The one I can trust will always be there
    Her and I make one hell of a pair.
    Day and night she will always be loyal
    Even if sometimes she thinks she is royal.
    My Bella my beautiful
    My Bella my beau.
  17. Her gentle purrs
    Her soft nuzzles
    Her golden stares
    Her rough kisses
    Her playful scratches
    Her unending love
    Her undying spirit
    Her silky fur
    Her hairless belly
    Her shrinking frame
    Her final mews
    "Mom, I'm comfortable. Why'd you have to move?
    I want to sleep in your arms because I love you."
    Goodbye my darling
    Goodbye my precious
    Goodbye my princess
    Goodbye my baby
    I'm sorry we didn't have more time
  18. A little poem from my cat, Bitty's point of view.


    Sometimes when I look outdoors,
    I get a little lonely.
    All I know is a loud little dog,
    high walls and shiny floors.

    Once I was an outside cat,
    A good hunter of mice.
    But I used to hunt other things;
    Once I brought a rat.

    But then my Daddy died.
    I saw him; It was awful.
    I went to warn him of the car,
    but it was too late. I tried...

    Then my brother followed Dad.
    The same way he died.
    I tried, I really tried,
    But I was scared. I was bad.

    Now I'm stuck indoors,
    staring through a window.
    Occasionally I remember
    The lack of walls and shiny floors.
  19. My dearest Phantom,
    Though your fur may turn grey,
    You I'll not forget.
  20. I once had a cat named Smoke
    His long hair often made him choke
    He was aloof and disdainful most of the time
    But that fur was the softest, oh so sublime
    We were his staff, that was clear to see
    He would stand at the door and look at us like, "Excuse me."
    He would meow to one who passed by
    If they did not heed then he would cry
    Horrible and pathetic was that wail
    Accompanied by a vicious swish of his tail
    And often once he was let out
    You could almost see a punishing pout
    And he'd turn and swish that tail at you
    As if to say "I poo adieu!"
