Join Delores, MotherOwl, and me as we peer into this topic and transport you to another realm with our portal poetry ... hopefully ...
You can leave a poem in the comments, or post on your own blog. If you do the latter, please leave a comment so we know how to find you and your poem. Feel free to use the given topic or any other topic of your choosing; the idea is to have fun and make our brains fire a little faster.
I was unsure how to approach this topic at first. While I enjoy science fiction, I haven't read anything about portals for a long, long time. Are there portals in the Harry Potter books? I don't read them, so I don't know. But Delores gave me a few tips over on her blog Mumblings, and that helped.
And then one day I was watching our cat Lulu play inside a large brown paper bag, and my path forward was suddenly clear.
Lulu doesn't consider what she does in that large brown paper bag to be "play". She's completely serious when she enters that portal, and uses all eighteen of her claws to attack whatever is on the other side.
(Just between you and me, the only thing in that bag when I looked inside was a piece of kitty litter, but I think human eyes and kitty eyes see things differently.)
i am feerce kat
in my kingdom
with velvet paw
there is much peece
but there is wun place
uv grate danger
full uv monsters
i gard portal
and i battul monsters
with all my mite
they are feerce
but i am feercer
i keep my
and i do not get a singul scratch
Lulu guarding the portal to monsterland. She was feeling self-conscious here because she doesn't like to have her picture taken. You should have seen her after she wrote that poem, though -- talk about self-confidence!!
Apologies to those whose mother tongue is not English; the kitty's spelling is not good. I hope it makes sense to you :)
Wishing you a peeceful week with zero monsters to battul.
