Black Cat (Poem 2019 – 54)

What is the best thing that’s happened to you this year? It can be hard to remember any highlights of last winter or spring, so long ago. For me, it’s Musky, taking him into our home and hearts has truly been the most magical thing!

(poem a day: day 9)

Black Cat

sleek and shiny black fur
and eyes which lazily open
and follow me across the room
your agility and speed
as you run after me
your legs entwining with mine
you sit by my feet
gazing up at me
bewitching me
with the magic in your green eyes
