Cat in Repose

Cat in Repose

Crescent moon

curled up on a cloud

my lap brings the comfort

and her deep sighs, the sleeping sound

though gentle noise twists her ears

and open peeps one eye.

She could stay still for hours

with her chest a steady rise

and fall, then slight twitches

or flicks of the tail.

Her white fluffy paws knead the air

as pleasure prevails

with gentle pur on the outbreath.

A parcel of ginger and black,

her warm coat a replacement

for the fur that I lack.
