CAT - a poem for National Poetry Day

It is National Poetry Day = And here you can read my contribution to the event - posted in memory of Kika,

KIKA                                                       
Cat sprawled boneless
on the softest chair -
scarcely breathing warmth
in a heap of silken fur -
the merest twitch
of tail or whisker
betraying a mouse-filled dream.

Your caressing hand
creeps in to borrow
some of that contentment
and its body lengthens
yielding a wanton belly.

You can lose all the tensions of a day
in the purr of a sleeping cat.

    1. Thanks Ros. We lost Kika a few months ago after 14 years and we still miss her.
