Kitten – poem

The famous bridges restaurant in Ubud have invited me to read poetry on Sunday, 12 May – which apparently is Mother’s Day here in Bali… (that’s interesting, as Mother’s Day is always celebrated in March in England).

I’ve got a number of poems up my sleeve for this special occasion and I want to share one of them with you and, of course, with my own mother – hello Mum!

It’s a short poem called ‘Kitten’ and it is dedicated to Villa Kitty – for all they do to help cats and kittens (that’s where I got my two kittens, Jojo and JJ, from).

Every mother loves a kitten, don’t they?

A cuteness that can't be denied

A cuteness that can’t be denied


Small parcel of joy
wrapped in a Mother’s Day surprise
tied to your heart by a rainbow
scampering before your eyes

Furry to the touch
ears up high and alert
meowing with a sweet delight
running rings around your skirt

Ever loving and playful
a cuteness that can’t be denied

this kitten’s always purring
show your friends with smiles and pride

Bridges restaurant will also have classical music accompanying their special Mother’s Day brunch… yum, I can’t wait!

This elegant restaurant, perched on the side of Campuhan Bridge, will be donating a percentage of the proceeds to ‘Yayasan Bumi Sehat’, a foundation which helps Balinese women with childbirth – very fitting for Mothers Day, don’t you think?

Hope to see you there!
