Cat Mittinger
Cat Mittinger

Born in east Belfast 1959 where all good pastie suppers originate, Cat currently lives south west of Vienna, Austria, in the lesser mountains of the alps. Poetry and children's stories are her passion along with a chronic case of the photography bug. Over the years she's had small pieces published and last year was one of the contributing writers on a project for the American women's association.

Sunday Afternoon by Cat Mittinger

Distinctive and quiet,
Sunday afternoon;
The northern wind blows my curtains inward and south.
Rain dispersing over muddy fields and
From my window
I can see a cow
I can hear it’s cry.

Alone it stands and calls for
The others

Grazing far beyond
At the top of the hill.

Lost and without them,
It’s natural enviroment
Seems alien
And lonely,
Murky and vast.
