I looked around for beauty but I got distracted
by the grey rain streaks echoed on my kitten’s fur
as she sits all pensive on the window sill.
All I notice are water-stained window panes.
My brain fries synapses and skips seven beats.
She darts forth on sure-footed pads through the snow
like a lynx in the mountains I no longer have before me
to make up for the fault in my wiring.
I missed the deadline on dVerse Poets for the poetic prompt on anthropomorphism of beloved pets, but I am not sure that this poem would have been quite suitable for it anyway. So I am linking it instead to Open Link Night. Join me there for some poetic fun during this month of poetry celebration!
