A CHANCE ENCOUNTER
(of the feline persuasion)
Like “BOWIE”* but less luxuriant,
A British Blue-looking stray…
Sauntered by my picnic table
While I was writing one day.
It looked at me and I looked back,
Its gender was too quick to tell…
It strode along the line of parked cars,
Went back to my business as well.
It didn’t run and I didn’t speak,
I’d seen it around the place…
At least both were on familiar ground
Giving each other their space.
* “BOWIE” refers to the eminently famous “Mr. Bowie”, star of the blog: HANDS ON MR. BOWIE, produced by a cat-lover named Herman, whose photography skills include teaching Mr. Bowie, a British Blue breed of cat, how to take his own picture. http://hopedog.wordpress.com/
