Soul Cat

In stirring shadows burn two topaz lights

Expressive orbs that flicker in the night

A velvet nose that twitches at each sound

And silken paws that move along the ground

Her body flexes with a quiet poise

She leaps upon the bed without a noise

The tip of her tail flicks against my skin

Whimsical whiskers trace along my chin

A vibrant purring echoes in my ear

Her cool cat breath’s a signal she is here

The kneading of her claws upon my chest

The nightly ritual before her rest

She marches in tight circles on my soul

A perfect cat, my feline keeps me whole
