Where else?? but
At the beginning
Until the END: then
(inspired by Lewis Carroll quote)
Gaia: what the *?!!# is THAT!!!!
one week of brushing yields piles of fluff
what to do? craft s’more that cat hair stuff!
nimble hands now roll now shape then form
that mound of hair? it’s now transformed!
now see, for words cannot express
wild cat exuberance! yes, Yes! Y E S !
the fur piles
cat wildness one
cat wildness two
cat eyeing the hairy toy
i’m done with necklace number three
t’was balls of fun—let’s shout WHOOPEE!
what’s next?—i think i’ll take a break
but mostly it’s for Gaia’s sake
commission three of 3
twinkle, twinkle, little star
how i wonder what you are
made of cat hair, just the best
taken from this kitty’s chest!
commission one of 3
a little advertising won’t hurt
but will it dish out the pay dirt?
because, i’m one terrifying trend
that might portend or offend
and on cracked.com you’ll find the buzz
that cat hair stuff is anything but fuzz
yes, they can humor me all the same
but just you wait
cat hair jewelry will put them to shame!
cracked.com: HAIRBALLS—not just choking hazards for cats anymore!
an earring went AWOL
in yonder urban sprawl
it was a cherished treasure
that gave the wearer pleasure
* * *
this bauble? no ordinary thing
t’was cat hair that made it zing!
so another set was made
to replaced the one that strayed
not in a happy mood today
a favorite necklace has gone away
A lot of hair was used
so part of him is missing too !
but don’t be sad, it’s not all bad
another neck is rather glad !
For weeks and weeks I fussed then cursed
My mind was trapped and at its worst
No creative thoughts were to be found
My mental state had run aground!
> * * <
I begged my kitty—help me please
I badly need your expertise!
With Thinking Turban on his nod
Designs soon flew—and none too soon!
> * * <
And now, let’s see him strut his stuff
With Metro Cat he sure looks tough!
City kitties metro statement in fur and steel. One “tough” looking cat he is.
Choker necklace. Steel, cat hair and stainless steel jump rings.
Awake! Awake! now time to make!
What shall it be? you soon shall see
His nod has sparked so now be awed
A cat hair jewel that won’t be flawed!
But first the hair must have a flair
It can’t be rolled he must be bold
And so we leave him to his task—
A creation, he’ll soon unmask!
> * * < Gaia choosing from his cat hair horde > * * <
His turban’s off and now he sleeps
With mind awake not counting sheep
He’s thinking, thinking what to make
So please be still so he won’t wake.
Oh Gaia, Gaia let me know
If there’s some way that you can show
What were you thinking, help me here
Just whisper gently in my ear.
