Cat was written about my cat Millie, who often just silently gazes at me. I wonder what she is thinking, but it is difficult to tell …cat’s give little away!


She stares at me , through amber bright;
Steady, still, composed.
Hypnotic, trance-like pools of light,
display a mind reposed.
What thoughts have you, and do they
penetrate the corners of your mind?
Your eyes, so little help betray,
and nothing is defined.

Enigmatic, dignified,
No secrets will she tell.
Her thoughts remain unspecified,
But tacitly compel
the exploration of her soul .
What mysteries lie beyond?
I wonder if it is my role…
Should I, to her respond?

I hold her stare a second more.
I think I know her well;
but even though I won’t ignore
what she is trying to tell;
to fathom what her message means,
to comply with her demand,
would require a change of genes
I fear, or the waving of a wand.

Translucent amber ringed with green;
what ancient myths untold
lie dormant, never heard or seen,
await to be paroled?
But now it’s not with myths you toy,
or anything since past.
Your stare is just a well worn ploy,
to win you some repast

I lower my eyes and break the link,
and gently rub your fur.
This elicits a feline blink,
and encourages you to purr.
Whatever you wanted, and could not tell,
is gone and lost in space.
Your wrath on me you’ll not impel,
in case you then loose face.

Your dignity is still intact,
Wise passiveness retained.
Whatever I in vision lacked,
our friendship has remained.
Oh puss, your mysteries deep within,
can only enhance your charm.
Pray Cherubim and Seraphim,
guard Puss from earthly harm.
