Talking to a Cat

by Stephen Rowe
(Happy Valley, Oregon, USA)

Talking to a Cat

by Stephen Rowe

One breezy day in late October
I picked up the little ginger cat
And showed her the wind blowing through the leaves

Seeing her attentive to the sound of a nearby chickadee, I said:

“The wind moves around
And the birds fly through the air
And we breathe the air
All of us”

This seemed to satisfy her
Or at least I can say
She did not jump from my arms immediately
But on that warm October afternoon
Stayed another moment looking out the window with me
As if she agreed
A lot of folks use more words
To say far less
