“ That Cat ” ~ was Genghis then ~

 

The life & times

Of Genghis then…

 

He’d leap so high

To chase what flies,

Till one day found

What caught his eye,

Far from the edge

Would find him plunge

Four stories down,

Below his spying ledge…

 

Genghis that cat

Wouldst then survive,

But three more days

From fatal dive,

Sad to compile

Eleven months

Of his nine lives,

Hunting what flies

Alas that cat would leap

No more, nor jump or jive,

Through eight more lives!

“ A Place ” ~ in the sun ~

 

One lives in need

Of a place,

Held be in the sun

For its life giving face,

Tho risks of burn

In sun’s solar run,

We mightn’t discern,

Its perilous pace

Has us suffer pain,

Sparing no place

In spite of the rains,

He’ll find to embrace

Any ones face

Who dares overstay,

For sun, will have its way!
