Night Music

Night Music

The cats played
through the night.
The sounds were
out of sight.
Tabby beat the drums.
Alley added strums.
Shorthair set the tone
with his saxophone.
Beagle wandered in.
Gave Shorthair some skin.
"OK if I sing?"
"As long as you swing."

This came out of a writing exercise I did with my writers group. The prompt was to write about an animal. One of the members was teasing me and asked that I include a saxophone in my piece.

  1. Reminds me of "The Aristocats" - fun, snappy piece and you meet the sax challenge well : )

    1. Thanks, Debi. I love that it made you think of "The Aristocats."
