Solitude



the setting sun slants
amber streaks on the panes
the world holds its breath
and the treetops are still

stillness is a cat
dozing on the window sill
stillness is a lark
free-floating in the breeze
minutes blend together
and the hours are one
when a heartbeat echoes
and silence is profound

a ripple in the pond
a cloud over the sun 
and magic scatters quickly 
as soon as it begun 

the cat saunters off
with a glance and a yawn 
and dusk wanders in
gathering its purple gown

  1. /the cat saunters off
    with a glance and a yawn
    and dusk wanders in
    gathering its purple gown/

    A myriad of pinpoints of light
    Starts blinking like emeralds
    Heralding the onset of night
    Shrouding tree tops in gloom

    Two points of tawny brilliance
    Shining on foot path yonder
    The return of the feline to the fore
    To bask in the solitude of dusk
