It is my Tishka – friend and cat

The god of love is out of the genus
And its emergence could be wild.
It is sometimes the gorgeous Venus,
It is Amour the fickle child!

And there is one more delegate
Who represents the tactful warmth,
It is my Tishka friend and cat
And, nothing hides, - I like them both!

My four-legged shaggy god of love
With his seductive power
Is self-respect without awe
Behind the watchful cover!

This very earthly living boss
Each time is ready for a surprise.
I like the diversity of course,
But home needs cleaning sometimes!

And when I need my magic chair
Or put in reach an urgent jacket
He rests so comfortably there
That my intention looks like a racket.

My Tishka has a project,-
Attempt to understand
The core of the shady object,-
The TV, on its stand!

Michael Douglas is an actor.
Michael Jackson likes to dance.
My Tishka is a navigator
Within inside events.

Ability to listen
Is the trademark of lords.
His eyes reflect the wisdom
Which is beyond our words.

And when I pull a drawer
My Tishka shows his face.
Cause he is an explorer,
Who also needs this place.

He tries to be a tutor, -
At least, he thinks, we'll win
When I need a computer
And he is in between!

I smile and tell him: great!
Yes, he has an awesome charm.
I try to concentrate
And feel his playing arm.

For a guy, who isn't silent,
He doesn't speak too much.
But roar could be violent
When he demands my lunch.

And if you screw his ear
Or make him feel unsafe, -
You'll have a good chance to hear
The Truth about yourself!

He's also the whatever
On food consultant base, -
The overweight will never
Be dreadful in my case.

When Tishka checks the table
With tail up and tight, -
His friendship could disable
Excessive appetite!

Leonid Rozumenko

Someone in your domain asks me to send a letter about myself. My pleasure - favorite topic. Who am I? Can’t keep a secret - athletic, open-minded, and generous, with a wide scope, love for women, good company. With love for science and to write something everlasting, which isn’t computer programming anymore. I was born in gorgeous Kyiv (Ukraine) more than 35 years ago, lived in the USA for longer than 4 years and my language is still in progress. My poetry is also a colorful picture of the unseeing battle between “yours truly” and English grammar. My Ukrainian or Russian accent has two unreliable reasons – it’s “for fun” and “hard to get rid of”. The meaning of my last name “Rozumenko” in Ukrainian is very close to “jaba-jaba a dada” in “Crocodile Dundee II”. I have several other weaknesses but I introduce them only to my closest friends. Yours truly, Leo Rozumenko more…
