The Cat – Tanaga – June 28, 2015

Rooftop – at first light he walked
I think that if he had talked
He would have said:  “who are you?”
He wondered what I would do …

Eyes in eyes he walked by me
He was worried – plain to see
Pug-like face sleek silken coat
A white losange at his throat

Watching me he nearly slipped
My heart leapt he nearly tipped!
He looked down then looked at me
Across the red rooftop sea

Persian cat walked by at dawn
Thirty seconds then was gone
Chance encounter – eyes in eyes
Without hellos – no goodbyes.

  1. Very cool!!!
    We used to have a black cat with a white throat. This makes me think of him.
    I love how smoothly this flows — a chance encounter, beautifully captured 🙂
