Coming Full Circle (April 2, 2017)

Star's big soulful eyes
Penetrating deep
Into my soul.

Into the farthest corner
With a single glance.

As if
Weighing my soul
Like Ma'at does
With Her feather
Come Judgment Day.

She lays
Upon my lap

Her loud deep purr
My entire body.

Like a tuning fork
Being struck

Author's note: For the past month, or so, Star has discovered the joys of resting upon my lap, as I use my laptop, to cruise the Internet. Prior to this, she would rest upon my lap, after a bath, ahs I sat, on the edge of the tub, gently petting her, until I had to move. A far cry, from November 2011, when I had to lay a trail of kibble, to get Star, out from underneath the toilet cistern, as she was shaking with fear, on her first night, with Squeak, Venus and I.

An amazing look deep into the eyes of another creature.

What a wonderful progress... pets are wonderful once you are accepted.

You give me hope! After a little over a year, my Selene now cuddles up to me in bed and purrs very faintly.

Star is a lovely name for a cat, and she's a lovely cat. (And how appropriate to mention an Egyptian deity.)

I love this poem.

Cats have a mind of their own. I am glad that Star decided to join the world of domestic cats, purring their songs.

Just when you think you have figured out a cat, well you haven't. I have two inside and two outside. It is tough to woo them, but what joy when they choose to warm your lap.
