An Awwww Moment...


The Hazel Dormouse is native to northern Europe and Asia Minor.
It is the only Dormouse native to the British Isles and is therefore,
often referred to simply as the Dormouse in British sources.
It hibernates from October to April-May.

A Kitty's Game ~

Gracie 3 (l) and Max 16 (r)
Waiting for those Snow Birds...

Kitty’s peek
What can they see?
Looking for those birds outside
Wishing they would fly and glide
Swoop by the window sill
Kitty’s play their game
Claw the window pane
Inside no gain
Mewing with pain
Dang it!
Dream on Kitty Cats
As you, mew Oh, rats!
Tomorrow you play
With Birdies all day
At the window sill

(Yup! That's a NY Yankee Shirt I have on!

One with a sense of humor
will laugh throughout the day
taking with them joy and love
the way it should be, they say

Laugh we may - for it is right
as the silly in us brings a special glow
laughing together, we spread bright light
sharing smiles, the world will know -

Francis the Cat ~ by John Henson

Bonsoir mon ami I am Francoise Le Chat
That’s French you know, for Francis the cat
Here on the Champs Ellysees pickings are fat
And beautiful Mademoiselle’s stop for a chat

Oolala my friend I am in love with them all
Well! I am a young garcon and having a ball
Friends tell me the ladies will be my downfall
So! Until that happens, I will give them my all

I am the aristocat, the lord of the alleyways
Someone crosses my path and bravery he displays
Why I can run faster I know all the pathways
Though the ladies this somewhat dismays

Still I am the greatest there has ever been
A pussy cat extraordinaire, lean and mean
When I’m running away from the scene
I’m the fastest feline the world has ever seen

Musical Notes

Musical notes chime with song
brings the heart to dance
like free birds in the sky -
never asks heaven why

Knowing deep in our hearts
we shall come around again in time -
we salvage what truth is for we
shall draw upon it twice as much

Knowing deep in our minds
faith is the key to our sanity -
we lean to those who bring us
safety with their heartfelt love

Knowing deep in our beings
a sanction is waiting to comfort -
leading us to a light of fulfillment
and joy with others who know -


Expressions Poetry Journal wishes you a
Joyous Easter Holiday from our home to yours -
