Creative Writing and unfinished business…

green eyes unblinking
as she licks the silken fur –
no sign of that mouse

All cats lovers (I am one of them) will love this poem, thank you Rachael 🙂
Thanks, F. It’s such a beautiful painting I couldn’t resist writing something cheeky to go with it 🙂
Wow, it wasn’t until I read your comment above that I realized it was indeed a painting! So beautiful, and what a lovely haiku to accompany it. That does look like one very content cat! Fantastic ending, Rachael, as usual. (Well, not fantastic for the fictional mouse, but you know what I mean.) Love and hugs, friend.
Haa! Glad you liked it. I’ve been researching Japanese painting the last couple of evenings, and I’ve found some lovely ones like the cat, I hope to share via the haiku. They come under the generic term of ‘nihonga’ and many have an ethereal, amorphous quality I so like.
Was thinking about that disease you mentioned that mosquitoes carry (in your accidentally killing a spider poem) – it sounds really horrible. Hope you’ll be okay
