i’ve been taking lots of pictures of my cat the past couple of days

my dolce                 my sweet orange & cream creature that perches

                                  in place like a delicate tiny lion at all times 

                a calm chattering one at that                        emerald eyes intense

                        & always keen to peer at me in judgement or longing or

                        impatience due to her quick & hearty hunger.

this chapter of motherhood is new                            plants to a biting being

                       whose made herself comfortable quickly siting in place 

                       picturesque & content                          like she’s always belonged

                       inside these walls
