I write what I feel…

The Cat

The Cat



Golden orbs shine in the dark,

Unblinking, slinking close to the ground,

Aware of the slightest sound,

A distant howl,yowl,growl

Will cause me to pause.


Stalking is my way of walking,

Head held high,

Nose in the air – hoity-toity –

Who do you think you are?

No, I don’t want a pat –

Can’t you see I’m a cat?

Independence is my name,

Your attention is my game;

I will suffer, but only when I’m in the mood

And also only if you’re very, very good.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx
