Black Cat in Motion

by Mary E. Lowd

April 1, 2021

Among jungle greens
With eyes so keen
Passed a silky black cat

Slipping through daylight
A shadow come to life
This feline’s grace
Has no time to waste

When disturbed—
Oh so perturbed!
The beautiful feline
Very rudely spat

Hissing to say:
Get out of my way
You fool, now scat!
