Poet’s Challenge


I sit down, try to write.

 Dog and cats put up a fight.

Walk? Snacks? Pats? Play?

They sigh and look my way.

I shake my head and decline.

I just want to sit and rhyme.

They exchange a sullen glance.

Dog begins to paw and prance.

Cats take a different tack,

kneading and purring to call me back.

My eyes widen suddenly.

I was blind, but now I see.

They have come to inspire me.
