They are my sunny days

Clockwise: Twilight, Shadow and Misty.

The pose of a princess.
Aloof. She sits quietly.
Soft paws stalk silently.
Pounce for the tail, bites.

The cat’s yowl is heard.
Dignity blown away.
The kitten in pursuit.
Smack into the glass door.

Stunt looks on furry faces.
They sit, a little dazed.
I try not to laugh.
I enjoy their antics.

The dispute starts again.
A paw lifted, swipes.
The princess stalks off.
The kitten pounces; swipes.

Ever the drama queen.
Hissing and swishing.
The kitten never afraid.
Paws extended to swipe.

My four-legged darlings.
Her ladyship named Twilight.
The chubby one is Shadow.
Misty is the little rascal.

They are my sunny days.
My cheer quota each day.
Even on the worst of days,
my cats can make me smile.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
