curiosity killed the cat

curiosity killed the cat

Curiosity just killed the cat.
And it died another death today.
For it cannot bear to lose its pride,
It cut off its finger's piercing claws.
Grandmother’s yarn was full of promise and color
that the cat thought it could be weaved
into a warm and comfortable shawl.
foolish cat didn’t know,
it played with the yarn
and found itself tied and tangled,
only for grandmother to scold…
the yarn was for a cage decor
she has been wanting to make for the bird.

I can empathize with the poor, foolish and curious cat since I am quite a foolish, curious girl myself. :)

That cat was indeed curious yet so very lucky he!
'twas just a ball of yarn he's given up to be free
could be worse wicket basket if inside tried to see
rattler snake spring-coiled, whose fangs he can't flee

still and all, furry cat has no worry, no problem has he
he might have been killed then rattler's venom, oh gee
no trouble at all, curious cat, his dance steps with glee
I have all of nine lives, one less, so still eight more in me!

........i'm just another writer still trapped within my truth........

i have forgotten about what it is to write...
to catch that in-between the silence and the heart’s beating…
and go about that divide which separates shadow from the ground…
Writing, my first love!
and so, i write. répondez s’il vous plaît.

naling'wan ko na kun pa'no an mag surat...
kun pa'no mahagilap an uya sa tahao kan kasilenciohan asin pag-ibot kan puso...
buda malakop iyan na nagbabanga sa anino asin daga...

An Pagsurat, sakuyang enot na pagkamoot!
biyo logod, ako minasurat. magsimbag ka.
