APED's given words:
glance kiss life window red 
heal right brush cross

At a glance it was rather obvious
That a kiss of life was well in order
The state of neglect was preposterous
It was due now for a serious makeover

The French window could well remain
A new coat of paint to liven things up
With hues of red to rightly regain
Its stature of an abode of higher-ups

To heal the hurt of the previous occupants
Only right work to start as it was already late
Was it a parakeet then that had sadly flown
Or a brush with the Tom cat sealed its fate

Should the new cage look spectacular
To incorporate elements of functionality
A cross of the old and modern to feature
Only then fulfilled its individuality

For Tess' hosting at Magpie Tales #285 and
Vinay's APED with Wordle #82


  1. A cross between two can bring individuality ino play. Unless a tomcat gets in the way haha

  5. A cross of the old and modern to feature

  7. The idea of a "new cage"puts quite an interesting spin on this descriptive story.
