U is for… Unique
~ by Laurel Regan

(Pssst… new here? Welcome to Alphabet Salad! For background on how and why I got involved in both NaPoWriMo and the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, check out this post… and, if you’d like to catch up on my progress to date, my challenge posts are tagged with Poetry from A to Z. Glad you stopped by, and hope you’ll return!)

Blogging from A to Z April (2010) Challenge - U

oh, it’s commonplace

every year
without fail
too many to count
born, live, die
under porches
in alleyways
on the street
too many, too hard, too soon
uncared for

and the heartbreaking cycle

but you
you were one of the lucky ones
taken from danger to safety
rescued, tended, cherished
one in a million
singled out

and now you are ours

a precious little life
to shelter
to nurture
to love

welcome to the family

(For our new kitten Mei-Mei. Details to come next month!)
