Purrsday Poetry: A poem about Suki

Hi everyone,

Please find below the latest entry in Purrsday Poetry by KiWi:

Sometimes I think out to my cat,

And share my thoughts with her.

“I’m so glad the weather’s cool today.”

And Sukkah – she just purrs.

“What is time?” I ask out loud.

“A measurement of hours.

The opposite of eternity?”

But my darling just miaows.

“Why do we laugh?” I ask my pet.

“Strange giggles and guffaws?

A hiccough expressing social joy?”

Suki just licks her paw.

“Where do insects go at night?

Do they rest, or constantly creep?

Do they have homes to return for meals?”

But Sukkah falls asleep.

“Why is there beauty in this earth?

Why aren’t all things cold and stiff?

Thank God that He gave light to us!”

My Lefty blinks and sniffs.

“How many roads must a man go down?”

I wonder and poke her feet.

But Suki twitches and looks around

For bread or milk to eat.

“And what are numbers?” I think about.

“Just counting milk or mops.

An image assigned to a mental concept.”

And Sukkah stretches – and flops.

“How on earth are you so cute?!

And where could Olaf be?”

I ask her, but my dahblaise sprawls

In a sunbeam peacefully.

My Suki’s taught me it’s okay

To think, then rest, then eat,

Then sleep a bit and stretch a while,

Read a book, repeat.

My Suki’s taught me how to rest

As the sun grows warm and fonder.

We cuddle, purr, dream of sleep,

And watch the world, and ponder.
