The Pearlescent Companion

by Mary E. Lowd

The Queen of the Sea
Wished for a Feline Companion
So her Court Wizard
Took a handful of pearls
From the Queen’s Royal Jewels
And scattered them

Bouncing and rolling
Splashing across
The watery throne room floor

A heartbeat and a wish later
This Pearlescent Cat took form
