Purring Penny Parr

Maine Coon loungers
Welcome to Jawspring, the exhibition that is celebrating World Poetry Day on the 21st March by fusing Art and Poetry.
Today's poet is of the prose persuasion but has broken out of her comfort zone to dabble in the dark arts of the Haiku. Penny Parr is on the cusp of becoming a 'gun for hire' private tutor in her home town of Burton-on-Trent and putting to good use a pristine first class degree. Watch out for the Annie Oakley of French & German tuition on the Staffordshire highways. For her Jawspring inspiration she hasn't wandered further than her home environment and her two Maine Coon cats, Shanklin and Mystique.......
Feline instinct, grave purpose,
Tabby stalking prey.
Post slaps doormat-pounce!
Penny Parr's
