News Weekly, August 26, 2017

Old Ginger Cat

Whatever the books say
she loves to make eye-contact
curled on our laps.

Purring on our knees
she keeps her claws retracted
as she kneads skin.

Allowed on the bed
she fights to keep eyes open:
bliss surpassing sleep.

Late at night she walks
up the bed to the pillow,
meows for a hand’s touch.

Neighbours bring home fish.
She carries some with much pride
to our kitchen table.

She was old, metal pins
in both back legs when she came.
What made her like that?

 

Hal G.P. Colebatch




























The perfect gift for
the thinker in the family.
