The Cat and The Moon

Teresa has set us a writing challenge and I am coupling her Worth a Thousand Words image with her Three Things Challenge (3TC)

For today’s Three Things Challenge, the words are: night, moon, howl.

In solitude, I sit and stare at this orange orb in a black sky. Soon it will be time.
The moon is secretive, the night sky ominous, yet it is not for me to howl and announce my presence.
We cats see much. We keep our own counsel and watch, listen, evaluate.
Dogs may voice their longing into the shadows, then the full moon bursts forth from its cloudy hiding place and gleams like an iridescent pearl.
Some say it is a myth than Man is transformed into the wolverine under the full moon’s canopy. Come Halloween, spirits roam, who can tell the true from the fantasy?
I look forward to riding pillion on my mistress’s broomstick watching from the skies.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
