Feline Friend

Feline female
Chirrups to show
A language she
Expects me to know
We commune together
In chits and chats
My life fulfilled
By the company of cats.

(145 characters incl. spaces)


The Tabby

Tabby markings
Flitter quick
Darting about
Like fire on a stick
Watching and waiting
For mistakes made
Catch in an instant
Prey to be had.

(139 characters incl. spaces)

Brown Bear

Big and brown
Full of fur
Bear perhaps?
Not quite sure
Bulk reminiscent
Of animal in wild
Inspection reveals
A cat beguiled.

(125 characters incl. spaces)


Dog Walking

Silvery confetti
loosed from on high, lacing
Scotch pines
We held our breath, hushed
by the winter night
The dog sniffed the chill
licked the snow
from the sky
