Royal Cat's Eye

Curled up on one end of the couch (your castle),
You contentedly fritter away the afternoon,
Observing the living room through
One open eye.
Carefully I sit with my book.
Moments later,
You gracefully stretch your back and yawn.
Your paw, so clean and quiet,
Tentatively taps my arm.
With your usual royal bearing,
You allow me the privilege of
A brief glimpse into
That fortress of feline sensibility.

Thanks, Margie, Olivia, John, and Cecilia, for reading and commenting. It's always helpful, as a blogger, to have a cat who photographs well, lol!

Judith, this is such a beautiful and loving poem about your cat! (Even though I am a lover of dogs. LOL)

Well, Mary, dogs are pretty nice too. Just don't tell my cat I said so!!
