What Brought the Night

When cats were gods
and men were mice
and thoughts were frauds
meant to entice
and dreams were framed
by words unclaimed
Then day made way

Thanks to the mouse of The Twisting Tail for the reminder of cats having been gods (and a great Terry Pratchett line). 😸

Speaking of cats, looking for a hand sewn pillow? My daughter Bee has an Etsy site for “Hand sewn decorative items” – RaccoonStitches! Please check it out!

    1. I don’t believe I could ever outshine your writing, Mouse, but thank you very much! (And thanks again for the Terry Pratchett line. A great writer who’s next book that now will never be will be missed.)
