Raindrops twinkle on wayward leaves,
dawn streaming splendid-
your sleepy gaze shushes my heart.

Breakfast cackling on the stove,
I watch you slurp sour cream,
laughter tinkling, echoing unarrested

in fleeting sighs, tickling sun-slants,
soft yawns teasing feline purrs, and
captivated, I watch

hazel eyes knitting carefree perfection in life.

  1. Mohana, enchanting ode to feline companion! I especially love the “breakfast cackling on the stove” (my style of cooking!) and the “hazel eyes knitting carefree perfection….” You always sketch such vibrant word pictures!
