cat -
napping
on the chair -
black crescent moon.
i like how your fur glistens in the light.

in your dreams you are chasing beasts again.
mighty hunter,
catching and
eating
mice.
This poem is a double Tetractys. A Tetracty should express one complete thought using 20
syllables. They can be written with more than one verse but
each subsequent verse must invert the syllable count. There is
no limit to the number of verses. The structure is:
line 1 - 1 syllable
line 2 - 2 syllables
line 3 - 3 syllables
line 4 - 4 syllables
line 5 - 10 syllables

This is for :iconglory-be-project: You do not have to post every day; but you must write something every day. At the end of the year participants will trade and read the collections of each others' writing. What are you waiting for?? Sign up!!

I love how the form sort of echoes the movement of a cat stretching. Even the sound of the syllables makes me think of a cat yawning. Love it.

I will never look at my cat the same way again. This poem illustrates all the normal qualities of a cat, but in a way that sounds beautiful. Great work!
