Retro Post: Wolfie

I love cats. I love cats alot, and you’ll often find them skulking along the edges of my fiction. Typically, I portray them as being intelligent often on the cusp of being intellectual. This is, in no small part, due to my wife’s love of cats.

9 years ago, or so, her cat Wolfpaws passed away after a life of grace and beauty (which is the life that all cats aspire to), and I wrote this poem to ease Sarah’s pain, and to explore my own emotions.

*******************************************************************

Wolfie
(For Sarah)

Wisdom walks silently
On four padded paws.

Quietly,
She stalks across the moonlit night.

Her green eyes catch a moon beam,
and glow like a rainbow.

Alas,
The vision is gone in a moment.

With what purpose did she come?
We will never know.

With what purpose did she go?
Only she and the wind can tell.
