Poetry Sunday

OK… It’s Sunday and I’m taking a day off.

I want to give you a chance to get another entry into the giveaway though (and give you something to do even if you don’t want to enter) and here it is:

I’m running the giveaway with Katdish so today, to get your bonus entry for the day, I’d like you to write a comment on this post with a short poem about her.

It doesn’t have to rhyme, it doesn’t have to be long just something about @katdish is all I ask.

If you don’t know Katdish, head over to katdish.net and then just make something up.

Please feel free to join in even if you don’t want to enter the giveaway.

Katdish poems.. here we come!

About PeterP

I am a blogger, author, stay at home dad, speaker, web hosting trainer and geek (I was so excited to get an iPad that I actually made up a song and dance about it). I am English by birth, but currently live in California with my wife and our three children. I ran a web hosting business for nine years and found that many, if not most of my clients had never learned how to use any of the functions associated with hosting so I wrote a book to try and teach just those skills. I must admit to having fallen in love with WordPress (possibly a little TOO much) and I honestly find it hard to understand why anyone would use anything different to build a site! WordPress is wonderful! My passion is to help others achieve their goals with their websites/blogs. I believe that, with a little help, anyone can have an awesome site.

    Ode to Katdish

    A rant extraordinary
    in its perfection,
    A Skymall catalog explicated
    in all its tackiness,
    A generosity for others
    in all its fullness,
    A heart for her Lord
    in all its beauty.

    1. katdish says:

      Aw, geez. Thanks Mr. Glynn.

  2. Beautiful, simple, but right to the heart
    Elegant, lovely, words of pure art
    More than just thoughts, and more than just rhyme
    She has entered the meaning
    The meaning of all time

    And I am honored by the read
    That introduced me to God

      Thank you so much.

    2. katdish says:

      Thanks so much. And I’m glad you liked the Manning video. One of my faves.

    I can’t compete
    with Mr. Glynn
    But her grocery store sushi
    Is a downright sin.

    1. katdish says:

      You can’t mix blog world with twitter world. Your entry doesn’t count.

      1. Candy says:

        You’re not the boss of Peter’s blog.

        There once was a girl named kat
        And at her computer she sat
        She ranted and raved
        Encouraged and raised
        The bar for all blogs after that

  4. Too much fun to resist!!


    Tinkerbell has pixy dust,
    Santa has a sleigh,
    Roads bring wanderlust,
    Katdish is here to stay.

    What, you don’t want her?
    You think she’s stabby?
    Wait, a little later,
    She’ll be our Dear Abby.

    Along the Twitter trail
    she sprinkles quips and snorts,
    she dances with email
    and teases and cavorts.

    But you’ll know she’s been there
    cause we’re doubled over,
    laughing, no time to spare,
    watching her tweets rover.

  5. katdish says:

    You rhymed stabby with Dear Abby? Color me impressed.

    1. Candy says:

      Wait, she mixed blog and twitter too!! How come you didn’t chastise her?

    2. Yep. Stabby Abby. Or something like that. Sorry/You’re welcome.

  6. Jason says:

    A haiku for KatDish (’cause a haiku’s a poem!)

    Woman from Texas
    Only she could make me see
    Plastic butler butt

    1. katdish says:

      Ah, yesh…

      you know how I love a good haiku!

    1. katdish says:

      Thanks, Kirsten. You really want that blog makeover, huh?

      1. Kirsten says:

        how did you guess? but I *promise* poem content was not related. 🙂 Grace is not the easiest thing to spot in some; you are a grace-filled person. That you are a funny grace-filled person is even better.

  8. HisFireFly says:

    I log on at times in a fog
    with coffee in one hand
    while petting my dog
    in a mood perhaps testy or sad
    to find a Kat who makes my heart glad!

    1. katdish says:

      Ha! Thanks, Karin.

  9. I circled the block
    over and again,
    much to my young son’s chagrin.

    For I was certain I had seen
    that lonely man before
    and I needed another look just to be sure.

    Indeed! His eyes were the same shade of sad
    and he held a tray,
    outstretched in his hands.

    Strategically, someone had place him
    behind a canvas sign
    depicting a new brand of Walla Walla wine.

    I burned rubber as I sped home.
    My heart pounded with glee,
    for I certain I had found PCB for Kathy!

    She told me to dig deep,
    find the courage,
    and go back for a close-up peek.

    With my camera and kid in tow,
    I parked my dodge across the street
    and crept around real slow.

    For the feint of heart this was not
    as it was fraught
    with outbursts of hysteria
    and sweaty palms that were really rather hot.

    Because how does one tell her son
    she is really sleuthing around
    for someone she refers to as Mr. Bare Buns?

    Thank you, Katdish, for encouraging me
    while I researched the whereabouts
    of your missing, beloved PCB.

    If you’ve never read the original story
    or you another laugh is what you need,
    go to Kathy’s place and read
    parts 1 & 2 & 3.




    1. katdish says:

      Not only do you go on a wild goose chase for PCB, but you write a poem about it? Impressive.

  10. Okay, even though
    I scratched that poem on paper first,
    Somehow I still managed at least two typos.

    So sorry, miss Katdish,
    you deserve a poetical tribute
    muchbetter than this.

      Paper? What’s That?

  11. Helen says:

    loyal, Christian
    sharing, ranting, snorting
    joy, indignation, love, compassion

    1. katdish says:

      Aw, love you, Helen.

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue

    Katdish is gettin’ her toes did
    So she can wear her flip flop shoes.
