Early Mornings Involving a Marmalade Cat

In the still-dark morning
Silence except the fridge speaks
Spazz, the racing cat, at his lookout post
Daily grind of caffeine stones
Calls to my Muse to arise from
Her lonely space
Channeling content borne of prompts

Inspired by d’verse on the subject of Everyday Objects

  1. This post reminded me of McCavity, the cat from T.S. Elliot’s poem. McCavity committed crimes in that poem. Are you familiar with it?

  2. Exchange the cat for two dogs, and that’s my morning too. I found delight in this little poem.

    I loved what we call our cats; Spazz is great. Our 12 year old male is called Keezie Motto. A lot of cats & dogs seem to inhabit our poetic abodes. We lost our dog years ago & haven’t had the heart or energy to start anew with another one. Appliances to speak in their techno-whirr tongues. I used to drink coffee at work, but do not brew it or need it on my less hectic retirement mornings.

  4. The cat here looks very still – like the morning
    and silent, unlike the fridge
    yet he is “Spazz, the racing cat”

    Your coffee spins contrasts

  10. A very beautiful start to the day. I admire your ability to call your muse, as well. Mine seems to come like a cat when called, coffee or not.

  11. At our house it’s a black cat and the coffee comes pre-ground. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the descriptions of the cat and how most anything can awaken the muse. Peace, Linda

    1. I agree. He waits in the bedroom until I reach the stairs and then zooms ahead of me as if it were the Indy 500 or something ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. Mmmm. I could get down with some coffee. Grind those stones.
    Ha. That sounds like a fun cat as well.

    Mine is a night owl, coming in each morning to find some sun and flop over.
    Peaceful morning.
