“twist of emotion”

Written for:  The Twiglets #286 - twist of emotion

She strode 
to their spot,
heart happy, eager
to see him.  
She trudged off, 
stomach churning.  
He ended it.

His expression 
unchanged for
years, suddenly
twisted into 
a smile.  Music

mewing kitten
stuck in drain pipe, terrified
purrs, licks rescuers

                  Given a power potion
             to perk up his depressed emotions,
             he drank more than prescribed,
                and proceded to glide
        on frozen pond, sans skates, causing commotion.

    Your second poem made me think of my father. Towards the end music always brought a smile, and hopefully some remembrance.

    Your first reminds me of a time I ‘ended’ it. Though I don’t think the gent was too broken up about it :), the second… Music is always a good thing.

    I think we would all like to express happiness at being resuced! Lucky kitty.

    The punny Limerick is fun to imagine. 😀
