My first poem to this forum:

KYRA

She was just a little cat
born blind and ten days old
when her mother died

She was just a little cat
when I held her in my arms
poor long-grey-haired delight

She was just a little cat
so she learned her way around
bumping into everything

She was just a little cat
went exploring the outside
try to catch that flying thing

She was just a little cat
and she brought me her first mouse
so I told her: " Good for you"

She is just a little cat
still blind and four years old
purring into my ear: " I love you too"

Thank you Sven, for giving me my first feed back. You will see more soon, but I need to go to bed now. It's three AM overhere and I have to get up at 7.30. I recently started to write in English and I think it's fun to do, challenging. Thanks again.

Titia, do you still have this cat?  She must be a joy for you.  Pets have a way of healing alot of our hurts, inside and out.  I love your first poem.  Welcome,  ME

How exciting: someone from the Netherlands, writing in a 2nd language, well at least not the first, and a cat lover, to boot!!

I love cats, have 4 right now.  You describe your cat and your relationship quite well. Good introduction to yourself, Titia!

Dear Titia,

I think it is a great accomplishment to be able to write your poem in a second language.  It's tough enough in native language.  I have two kitties and I they are wonderful pets.  Welcome to the forum.  Joyce

Thank you very much for all your kind words.
Yes, I still have her and allthough she is blind, she plays boss over all our cats and dogs. I've allways have cats (and lots of other animals) but Kyra is the most precious of them all, maybe just because she is such a fighter. If you want a picture of her, you can send me a mail (hgeertman@zeelandnet.nl) and I will mail you one.

And yes, it's quite different to rhyme in a foreign language, I have to keep it a bit simple (lack of words), but then, most of my Dutch poetry is simple too.

Thank you again for such a warm welcome.

Oh, wow this is precious.. very fortunate cat to have found you, and fortunately for you to have her. Thanks for commenting on my Haiku's, that is how I found this lovely poem.
