Cornelius the Cool Cat--Mixed Media Painting

Cornelius the Purple Cat, Mixed Media Painting, 9" x 12"
© 2009 Fannie Narte

Do people make fun of you?

People make fun of me because I wear purple,
because I like spiders.
"Corny Cornelius." That's what they call me.

But I don't care . . . that much.

At least once a year,
I can come out of my cave.
I can be myself.

I can be purple.
I can talk purple.
I can sing purple.
I can walk purple.
I can dance purple.
I can paint purple.

I can go Trick-or-Treating.
And my spider friends can come along.

Once a year,
I feel like I fit in.
But I shouldn't care . . . that much . . .
. . . because

my mother gave me wings,
she calls me "Cornelius" the "Cool Cat."

BOO! Trick or Treat!

Whimsical, indeed, Rosie, and sooo purple. Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for stopping by, Diana.

Finding a name for my creatures can be challenging. Thanks for visiting.

Thanks, Jacq. Trick or Treat!
