Playing, scattering a freshly raked pyramid of fallen frost painted
autumnal leaves of green, burnished copper and gold,
feline fur fragrant with the metallic snowy scent of icy winter air
after coming inside from the cold.
The ‘tick tick’ warning call of a diminutive scolding wren,
perfectly hidden in a tall mature privet hedge,
innately curious, climbing an unattended ladder, walking without
a care along a narrow slate tiled rooftop ledge.
Indoors watching a storm with rain-laden clouds radiating
lightning, followed by a deep echoing thunder clap,
mesmerised by the sound and sight of sunlit iridescent drops of
water emitting crystals prisms from a slender silver tap.
From the top branch of a nearby tree emanates a robin’s pure
melodic solo on a tranquil misty spring morn,
the unhurried luminescence of a white gold sunrise above dark
lined horizon, as the ebony night becomes dawn.
Laying on luxuriant summer lawn watching peacock butterflies,
a colourful profusion of fluttering wings,
feeding upon the sweet golden dust of summer nectar that
Buddleia’s abundant white flowers bring.
The distinctive sound of biscuits being eaten signals your stealthy
return after an eventful night on the prowl,
in the tranquil silence of a canopied black velvet night, the familiar
calls of adjacent and distant tawny owls.
Cautiously exploring, the garden’s familiar landscape transformed
by a silent overnight dusting of pristine snow,
late afternoon hosts an ephemeral linear grey and obsidian
sunset tinted with a fleeting pink glow.
The enjoyment of a warming coal fire lulls you into a paw and
tail twitching sleep on a cold winter’s day,
sitting expectantly near a strand of discarded silver Christmas
tinsel, mischievous eyes asking you to play.
The dancing random flight of diaphanous moths catches the
eye in the deepening shadows of twilight,
a motionless silhouette listening intently to field mice in tall
flowering summer grass, always a timeless sight.
Moving like a feline compass following the sun’s warm rays around
the house on it’s restless journey across the sky,
a cats beauty, company, independence and the pleasurable sound
of a contented purr, always a pleasure to have nearby.
