~ ‘Cause A Cat’s The Only Cat…Who Knows Where It’s At ~

With Midnight came the gentle muse,

Sneaking in on soft cat paws.

Teasing out the thoughts in twos,

When musing mews and sheathes its claws.

It purred into my sleepy mind,

Curling round my drowsy smile,

Gave me new ideas to find,

Whispered peace with feline style.

One mind’s eye open and silently aware,

One slit-pupiled eye barely closed, but awake,

The Midnight Muse of there, not there,

I pray these words, my soul will make.

Before it renders me catatonic and stops,

I’ll slide into delicious, fur-tipped thought.

Twirl my whiskers and lick my proverbial chops,

And blink-less, think, of the lines uncaught.

Then settle into soft, rumbling slumber,

Assauged, but only somewhat mollified.

Sweet feline thoughts of infinite number,

Guard my dreams ‘gainst pensive mice inside.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.
