A bobcat came to my house today,
under my tree she wanted to play.
And even though she looks so cute
in her spotted bobcat suit
I know that I must keep away.

    Some times magical gifts are given to us, if we just keep our eyes and ears open.  This poem was the gift given to me today and the fantastic experience of seeing a wild bobcat walking across my yard.  What is something magical that has happened to you?  A sight from nature?  An unexpected surprise or gift?  Can you write a poem about one of the magical things that has happened to you or someone you know?  Have fun writing and counting blessings.


  1. Keeping away is a good thing! Nice one, Joy. We've been having quite a few cougar sightings out here lately.

    1. I bet you get all kinds of sightings up you way--especially the illusive bird Phoebe and Little Dude. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

  2. Joy,
    I've saw a bobcat in our yard in mountains once. I never wrote a poem about it though. Maybe I should have. I did write one about turkeys in the yard.

    1. I try to stay away from the turkeys, I don't want them to get me down. I'd love to see your turkey poem.
