In case you are wondering why no September poem was posted, it was because we moved on August 3, and have been busy unpacking. I am posting the poem for October early. The poem is titled, MEMORIES OF A SPECIAL CAT. Mia was a cat who belonged to my niece, Rebecca. I loved Mia as much as Rebecca did.
MEMORIES OF A SPECIAL CAT
Mia, meowing ever so gently to announce her presence
Slowly walking toward me
Brushing her body against my leg
Communicating with subtle movements of her tail.
Mia, finding her spot in the room
Stopping to groom a moment
Stretching, stretching, stretching
Rolling on her side and soulfully looking back at me.
Mia, making contact with one of her toys
Pouncing on a favorite
Waiting for me to play her game
Rewarding me with a look and a swish of her tail.
Mia, suddenly stopping her play
Strutting back and forth in front of a recliner
Quickly claiming it as her own
Circling, snuggling, purring.
