Poem

Footprints

My little cat makes footprints

delicate indentations

when winter's snow is falling

upon the windowsill.

Delicate indentations

tell me she has been there

upon the windowsill

waiting for my welcome.

Tell me she has been there

hoping for attention

waiting for my welcome

watching me cook breakfast.

Hoping for attention

smelling me fry bacon

watching me cook breakfast

waiting for her share.

Smelling me fry bacon

when winter's snow is falling

waiting for her share

my little cat makes footprints.
