Photo prompt June 4 to June 10, 2019:
The ancient streets of London, under a full moon
A story old as time was playing out of the feline variety
Lola, a beautiful white Persian had fallen for the ginger tom cat
Whose master had once called him Phillip
Before moving away, leaving him on the streets
Her father, having searched the rooftops
Found her on her own with the chocolates
Phillip had half inched from an open window
She sat, holding his tattered hat
He gave the lecture that so many fathers have done
Little knowing Phillip hung by his claws from the gutter.
Should he take note of these very words coming from her father
That she will end up in the gutter should she continue the courtship
Phillip had washed and pressed his best tie
Worn his only hat which she now clutches
He hangs from the gutter feeling like a criminal
He has no home and lives in the dark alleys of London
He cannot ask her to do the same
Her father is right, she deserves better
With her father’s words ringing in his ear
He wondered, could he find a good place to call home
Elope with his beloved Lola
He heard her say, “Father, I will follow Phillip anywhere.
He will look after me. Love finds a way.”
Phillip had the answer his heart wanted to hear
From the lips of one who loved him…
