Close and yet
today, i discovered the gray kitty that i always see on the sidewalk, quiet & quick in the night,has been hanging out in my garage.
we surprise each other in the garden & I surprised him when he was unaware of me sitting in the warm summer nite on the porch. i believe he was calling it bedtime.
you can tell he belongs to no one, & belongs no where.
he is a beautiful thing, with a smooth gray coat.
and bright green eyes that fix on me when he begins to
dart away, & I call 'kitty, kitty.'
in that moment when he doesn't know if to run or to trust
we seem very close
yet extremely distant.
Picture: Internet (i would be surprised to get a photo of him w/his speed!)
