My Tiny Tim

Ok. So, I have a pet mouse named Tim. She (yes, she) convinces me more and more each day that she is a magical mouse. About a week after I got her, I heard a loud POP at 3am. When I got up for work three hours later, she was out of the cage and ran away before I could get to her. There were no holes chewed in her cage, all the doors were closed and, to this day, I have no idea how she did it.

There are a ton of cats in my neighborhood, so I gave her up for dead.

Two weeks later, I hear this scurrying scratching sound right next to my ear. At 3am. In. my. bed. O.o

Yep, it was Tim. She got away before I could catch her, again. It’s pretty much a miracle that she’s still alive.

I’ve been setting up traps every night that would catch her safely- if they worked. But when you live with Houdini, there is no telling what will happen next.

losers and winners

Every loser is not unworthy, unfit,
Every winner is not worthy, fit
Sometimes invisible forces meet
To decide who victory shall greet.

Rules of a Quatrain:
Did you notice that a quatrain is formed by two rhyming couplets? Easy! This pattern is called a a b b. The first line rhymes with the second (sky and by) and the third line rhymes with the fourth line (edge and ledge). Other quatrain patterns are a b a b,
a b b a, and a b c b.


little sparrow

the little sparrow chirps and hops
busy flying here and there
looking for crumbs everywhere
her tiny wing barely stops.

hatred

This disease is named hatred
That makes you want someone dead.
The fault is hardly on their part
Because the disease thrives in your heart.

fireflies and stars

Firefly twinkle and glows
Soft breeze in bamboo grove blows
The stars look down at them
Musing if earth is mirroring them

effects of headlines

If you really want to screw up your mood
Read the newspaper seriously
If you want to screw it further
Read and think a little about the news.

If you want to ruin the day and more
Think more seriously about it.
Now itโ€™s done! Go ahead!
Spend the rest of the day brooding!
