Kitty love

you come

in the early morning hour
waiting for the first sign of
my awakening

i feign sleep
stealing a glance
your way
through heavy eyelids
as you gaze 
at the dancing shadows 
of my drawn shade

i wonder 

do you dream of fields of green
or prey you seek to stalk
are you fierce and dangerous
like your ancient ancestors 
who haunt your sleep
each night

do you resent this placid life
provided by this human
isolated by a window pane
to keep the world outside


do you find a source of comfort
from imagined enemies and foes
who linger long in shadows 
of your nightly darkened dreams

i wonder

do you like your
life kitty
or do you want for more

when you come
each morning 

and gaze
at the dancing shadows
of my drawn shade
