Lesson Learned from my Cat

Lesson Learned from My Cat

The broken staccato
Of Kes’ purr punctuates
The morning kitchen

Like a faraway woodpecker
She steadily rat-a-tat-tats

Occasionally taking one deep,
Loud, long sigh before
Continuing the rhythm

This is what contentment
Sounds like – looks like

Eyes closed, body relaxed
She knows she is safe and
Comfortable with a full belly

I check the clock on
The coffee maker again

As the fridge loudly
Kicks into yet another
“replace-me-soon” cycle

I will be late for work if
I continue writing, but

I am safe, comfortable and
My belly is full
