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.

Miranda,

Thanks for reading.

Tabby cats are great. I love them.

Miranda Blanks from New York, New York on February 02, 2020:

Reminds of my four- year -old Tabby cat. She likes to run and jump high. Lol. I love her.

Beautiful poem Brenda

Shannon Henry from Texas on February 01, 2020:

I just love your poem, Brenda. I saw a mug or something the other day that I could totally identify with. It said "one cat shy of crazy." I had seven cats in the house growing up. Maybe that's why I love them so much now. We've only got two now, but cat antics never get old. In fact, I was watching some little cat videos and memes with my son just this morning.

Bev G,

Thank you so much!

Yes, I am still learning the ropes on here.

Hopefully I will figure it out before too long.

Sounds like you got a bunch to keep you company while you write.

Give the bengal a hug...i imagine she is beautiful.

Bev G from Wales, UK on January 30, 2020:

Aw, love my kitties. Got an old Bengal who is struggling a bit now. She still manages to take a swipe at any passing pooch - we have a bunch (three cats, six dogs).

Anyway, congrats on 'Newbie of the Year' - I hadn't realised you've only been here 12 months. Good work xx

Paula,

That video is hilarious! I am dying of laughter.

I must say it reminded me of the first kitty-cat I taught to walk on a leash. They never seem to want to do it.

Thanks for making me smile!

Suzie from Carson City on January 30, 2020:

Brenda......From one Kitty-cat lover to another! I'm still wiping laughter tears from my face!!!........
