Taking a Break

Well, since I never came back to finish up last week's exercises and it's 9:00 PM and I haven't done anything this week, I think perhaps a wee break is in order. Not sure when I'll be back. Maybe next week or the week after or in April.

My apologies.

UPDATE:  Of course on the week that I decide to quit for a while, someone else had planned to participate. I received this in my email from Gabrielle at Wild Goose Scoops Moon.   It's a tribute to Le Chat, Henri of You Tube fame and I think it's quite brilliant. For those who have missed it, here's a link to Paw de Deux.


J’entend les mots
Du chat Henri
What is this life
But rank ennui?

A bald cadence
Where obsessions reign
Stupid, ancient
Glorious ,vain.

Of gross demeanor
Futile now as
Hearts grow leaner

The knife is sharp
The keys are flat
According to
One weary cat

Why all this bother
To salivate
Cold fish again
Predictably late.

A frizzed red ribbon
Catnip filled mice
Glittery balls
Meant to entice

Charisma, swag
So overrated
Moi, je prefere
What’s understated
But I grow tired
Of all this rhyme
Perpetual  iamb
And metered time

The languid rays
Of morning light
Disturb a nap
Bring back the night!

J’entend les mots
Du chat Henri
The stars go darK

There's a new Harold on my blog, not a Wordzzle though, I'm afraid.
