NIGHT PASSAGES-A CAT POEM

 

NIGHT PASSAGES

Cat’s up.

Visits the commode,

then makes his rounds.

Meow, me-row, row-o-ooow

into the darkness,

skirting predator shadows,

seeking kibble prey.

He returns to bed,

jumping on my feet.

All purrs and purrumphs,

he settles in a circle.

A sigh

and back to sleep

while I stare into the darkness and

savor his kitty scent.
