An Optimistic Conversation Today At My Bay!

So the one with the long name can sure play the rhyming game. The cat will make that clear as we do another guest conversation with Optimistic Existentialist to celebrate 100,000 comments across my sphere.

Any thoughts you'd like to share,
When visiting today at my lair?
Like how the clouds roll,
Or things seen out on a stroll?

Ah, clouds you say?
Actually I just saw a few today
I always am taken back by the shapes in a cloud
I see some things I wouldn't want to say out loud


Geez, you're keeping mum?
I suppose your tongue may be numb.
After saying that big long name,
As it brings you blogger fame.

I thought of shortening the name once upon a time
But then it had grown on me, so that would be a crime
Plus it gives you a more difficult time
Trying to place it into one of your rhymes


Yeah, I suppose that is true.
You wouldn't want to be called short at your zoo.
What? That came from an instrumentalist.
Or maybe some fundamentalist.

Your rhyming skills are not to be surpassed
An array of word combinations that is impressively vast
Have you ever thought of a career in rapping?
I'm sure all the fans would be enthusiastically clapping


But then I'd need some bling,
The cat would eat it like a string.
That can't be good for the heart,
Any words of wisdom before you depart?

Some words of wisdom you seek?
Makes me think of Yoda while I speak
Live and love with all your heart, you must
And in your gut and intuition, always trust


Wow, you went deep.
In I'll let that seep.
But you still have one more to go,
How you going to top that at my show?

I will close by saying thank you Pat
And say hello for me to Orlin the cat
It was fun engaging in this back-and-forth rhyming
After today, my vocabulary will be climbing


Geez, another praising the cat. I could get used to this at my mat. Why didn't I do this long ago? It sure helps the old ego. Wise Yoda words came to pass, they are sure agreed with by my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  2. "the long name can sure play the rhyming game"
    It is a question really of getting used all the same
    Take a crack
    And not a slack
    But rather to push on and not assigning any blame!

    1. Push on and away one can go

  3. Actually, existentialism
    we all can have at grand
    if listen to our heart.
    Especially the optimistic one
    when living passionately
    in action.
    And thanks to you, Pat
    for conversation!
    Congratulations on
    100K comments!

    I always love being a brat!

  6. Optimistic is a gentle soul
    He was born to live a gentle role
    He notices things most others pass by
    He's like a kite, free in the sky

    1. Maybe he's a male Mary Poppins
      Pulling out all the stoppins
      Or had one too many spoons full of sugar come due
      So he can act gentle at his zoo lol

  7. Keith,

    Your words of wisdom from Yoda run deep
    these are words we should live by and keep
    cloud watching is something I often like to do
    so many interesting shapes come into view

    Enjoyed your chat here with the cat
    and of course we couldn't forget Pat Hatt

    He's worse than a girl with how he is so sappy.
