The catís tail are swaying...Then there goes my imagination...As if a catís tail could speak...

The wind blows with intensity

I glance out the bay window

The cat’s tail are swaying

I can almost imagine

A wee voice speaking out

Quit that please

Then there goes my imagination

As if a cat’s tail could speak

The sky is darkening

The tide coming in

Bring instead waves of fury

Pouncing against the sand

Shifting it I guess

Yet still I can catch a glimpse

The poor Old Moon

In and out

As the dark clouds

Move steady in the north’s direction

Wait there I whisper to the Old Moon

Soon the storm will pass

The bay will calm

So as you may shine a bit tonight

Above the still waters

Debra, It's amazing how the imagination can be triggered by the most unusual things. For you, it was the cat's tail that triggered this adorable write, with such vivid imagery. Nicely done indeed!
A rabbit triggered my imagination to write Caged:Where Most Husbands Should Be...for a while! :)

God Bless,
