Patti challenged us to use or adapt the following form to create a poem:
When ____________ you'll find ___________
That __________________ to make
Patti gave us an example, borrowed from Word After Word After Word, by Patricia MacLachlan (p 36):
When cracked you'll find inside
That tuck in snugly to make
Now, leave it to me to be unable to entirely "color within the lines". Patti gave us the option to vary the format, and I jumped at the invitation. Here's the poem that I came up with, "inspired" by Patti's pattern:
When we share our lives you’ll find
A lapful of purrs
Wrapped in a silken ball of fur.
I will entertain, love and soothe you
On my terms.
My cat, Glinka, all worn out after a mad burst of energy
