Black Lap Cat- a poem

Jinx on my lap

Black cat

Laying on my lap

The essence of contentment

Warm as a fire

In a January hearth

Sweet as a child’s embrace

And just as trusting

Trusting in me…

Simple me

With not much to offer

But a comfortable lap

And a reliable supply

Of tuna

Green jeweled eyes stare gratefully

Into my plain, empty brown

Is that a purr I hear?

A declaration of love


But oh so appreciated
