The Literate Cat

Like a cat with a ball of twine, I play with words, twisting them this way and that to make new visual images. I write picture books with this same sense of play. I hope to delight and amuse. By way of introduction, here is a double cinquain:

Arise.
Activate brain:
Solve Sudoku, crossword,
Word scramble, quotation in code.
Reward?
Giggle
with the funnies.
Fired up, butt in chair.
Fingers on keyboard, ready, set,
Create.
