My Halloween Cat


Norie and scratching post

A dark shadow,

Black as a crow.

Sheathed sharp claws,

Padded black paws.

Norie's Golden eyes.

Quietly spies.

With golden eyes.

Seen posed to jump,

Attacks blanket lumps.

Cat thoughts

Listening ears cocked.

Springs as a rocket.



Sunshine puts her to sleep.

Coat of ebon.

Warmed by hot sun.

Peaked ears alert.

Love of great worth.

Spooky Reflections

Who this shadow,

At the window?

My friend and pet,

Mischievous cat:


(Norie’s eyes and the camera’s flash create a weird effect. This was not photo-shopped.)
