Poem: Watching Cats Play

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Watching Cats Play

A light of joy, flickers inside her heart
watching the little fur balls play
running like a herd of buffalo
chasing one another through the house.

With their chest low to the floor
wiggling their little behinds
preparing to pounce
like their ancestors hunting in the wild.

She wants to hug them,
to hold them tight,
for her heart melts each moment
watching as they play,
lying on their backs
with paws stretched out
or kneading with their tiny paws
before curling up to sleep.
