                        what a
                     strange mor-
                   -ning to wake up
                  to when the sun bare-
                 -ly graces the treetops
                   and I think to my furry
                   little self that the time
                 has come to prowl  about
              the foggy dawn    dew  and
             make the best    of life as we
            know it be-        -cause really, the                              (p)
           sunrise                  doesn't last for long                      uurrr
           and                         before we realize it we'll           meeowrrrr
           be                             one   with   the   dewdrops    (stretch greet)
         that                              lick my paws – the sun will dry (meeow)                       
            them                              off soon enough and then we'll
                                                           all be nothing more than memories on parched
                                                                                                                        grass.
Just having a bit of fun. :)

Can be read normally from left to right, regardless of spacing. Comments are loved!

first piece I ever saw of yours, loved it then & it speaks to me even more now. Very glad I happened to check the DD's that day, or I'd never have met you :)

this is probably the best visual poem i have ever seen. i've always wanted to do something like this but i'm terrible at formatting. and the poem itself is just great, and the little meows here and there are just perfect. :clap:

Adagiobunny Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2012  Student Writer
ahh, thank you so much - your comment made my day! the formatting is only a bear if you overthink it (though it is a lot easier on paper than on the computer... :P). you should give it a shot! if it doesn't work out, you can always call it abstract... ;)

glad you liked the meows - i was trying to reflect the way our thoughts overlay our actions. :)

I've seen a lot of concrete poems about cats, but this one is definitely the best.

1)The poem itself sounds like a cat
2) The poem isn't just forming the outlines of a cat; it is a cat
3) This pose is so dynamic. It brims with life.

I had a lot of fun putting myself in a feline mindset while writing this. Also, I've always loved the idea that we are made of our thoughts... thus, the full composition instead of an outline. :)

Thanks so much :la: And haha, that's awesome! I know, this is my first concrete poem in a LONG time (my last one was probably a dragonfly somewhere in early elementary school :XD:). You should get into it again! This one was created through merely typing, but perhaps if one drew a shape lightly and wrote over it, it would give one more freedom... inspiration is just waiting around the corner. ;)
