Sleeping Cat

Not even a hint,
when I nudge her,
of a yawn, or the stretched out
sulky grumble of a turn.

Asleep, the cat knows something
we don't, curled up between us
and the kitchen door,
its life an answer
shut tight behind its eyes.


  1. This reminds me of a book I saw on sale at a local bookstore entitled, "The New Prophecy Warriors: Starlight" by Erin Hunter. It's all about what humans don't know about cats when they dream.

    I like this.

  2. Neat, it's a series on the world as seen by cats, I should check it out.

  3. Short and sweet. A nice read.

  4. In my next life I'd like to come back as a cat or dog...Either way, belly rubs, scratches behind the ears, and lounging in dreams is a nice way to spend an afternoon. :) Thanks for the moment's paws.:)
