Poem -

Me and Bella working.

Me and Bella working.

My Bella, 
proofreads for me. 

As my fingers tap she sits 
on the arm of my chair. 

She sits there to watch. 

She doesn't often comment. 
She doesn't make demands. 

While I write we listen to 6 music. 
Sometimes I get lost. 

Then she will meow once 
and tap me on the arm, 
and I will continue to write. 

Me and my Bella 
work well together; 

Unless she wants to eat .

Hi Nigel,

"Bella" is Latin for beautiful
She is the soulmate of Nigel
They hold and create his poetry
They work together very well

Peace, Love, and Purrs,
Larry xxx

Thank you Larry, love that, it's only when I'm actually writing that she leaves me alone. If I'm doing anything else, like research or speaking to clients on the phone or playing angry birds she pesters all the time but if I'm writing she does just sit and watch. I set my tablet to take the pic while I typed on my laptop.

Thank you Charu,
She's getting on now and I'm so used to her sitting at my shoulder that I won't even rearrange my room (and I need to 'cos it's also my office) in case it upsets her sense of continuity. I love her so much.
Nigel

Hi Poetess, I have tried to write without her sitting there and it feels REALLY weird.
