002. My Cat

Sitting on the fence
my cat looks round
looking for any prey
she gets up and stretches
a rabbit moves and the cat jumps

A flash of black and white
a rabbit’s scream
the cat holds it down
the dog comes up to see the prey
both cat and rabbit run away

For me this poem has the feel of a haiku capturing your observations beautifully. Thank you.
Nice ending. Funny in the same way. Positive poem. Nice, love it.
there is something about this poem which stimulates a desire to send it to MyPoemList. there, i did it! maybe it is the scene of nature and life and almost-death and surprise and the conciseness and precision with which the tale is told. i have no cat or dog, but i DO have a wife. and once in a while we have spiders and flies, oh my! thanks Profanisaurus aka john westlake for sharing an oldie but goodie with us. bri :)
