Its Me Again! Deborah Marie - Peaching Around
As I pace the floors and slide my smooth soft
Fur along the wall,
I notice humans outside.
They always have these furry animals with them.
The furry thing makes loud noises or jumps around. Some have long tongues whereas mine
Is so small. Some are so small I just wonder, would they play?
I wonder why I am always in this big place that David calls house.
I play hide and seek and lay in his lap.
Does he think I cannot visit those big animals?
I know one day I will pop out and take an adventure and come right back in the house.
I am out! It is hot. Something is making my hair itch.
The air is different and all this green stuff with little creatures. Oops! I think one bit me.
Red! What is this on my paws? Georgia Red Clay is all around me.
The color seems to stay on my paws and my tongue will not clean them.
This green area here has so many small and large creatures.
Oh, I do not know where David is now,
How do I get home?
Through this fence where I came from will get me home.
I am hungry.
No! I do not recognize these rough rocks.
I tried; it is time for bed, but my soft bed is not here.
I know sleep and I will be able to get food tomorrow.
Another day and rain- Rain, I think they call it because I am so cold.
Where am I?
I do not know and I will stay ‘til I figure out what is next.
Prrrrrrr Prrrrr- as a Lion with anger.
I will never leave home to find these strange animals again.
Isn’t anyone looking for me?
No food, help!
Curiosity is not good if you cannot understand how to get home.
What’s this? A human hand?
I do not know it but I am going!
Going up in the air to a human body.
Warm but I do not know them. I wonder if they know David.
Oh prrr prrr like a small cat.
Oh hello! Hello!
I am home again. Food and water and the wonderful air.
Prrr. Prrr. Love is all around me.
I am home and I am home.
I know what it is like out there, but I will stay here,
Where I belong,
And enjoy the love in my home.
