SOL16, Day 28: A Poem for My Writing Partner

My Writing Partner

His velvet ears sweetly sit
in wait for my finger’s touch.

Twitching at the squeaking door
the nick and scar flip on alert
and tell the tale of an unseen foe.

Quiet and reserved, gentle in repose
he holds traumas casual observers miss.

I do not want to wish the days away, yet the month of March is long.
The work has new meaning. I am grateful.

  1. Such a sweet writing partner! Sometimes it just helps having another living, breathing creature near as we write. I’m sure you get great feedback.

  2. Ah, that gentle writing partner! Yes, this month is lingering on and yet I see more and more creative slices today. We are pushing ourselves through.

  3. So long, this Month of March. I saw the title and was thinking – Julieanne has a writing partner? Who is this? Now, I see, Ideal. I just read Beth Kephart’s new book: This is the Story of You (released in April) There is a wonderful character/cat relationship in this novel.

  4. I’m with Carrie–“Julieanne has a writing partner?” I have one too–only she’s gray and white, LOL. Love the creativity here. You really captured the quiet trauma watchfulness very well too.
