Spirit of the Wind


They say cats are loners,
Drawn to the quiet places of solitude.
In a way, I suppose it's true:
The lonely desert or savannah;
The quiet, tranquil forest;
And the deserted city
Are places one would expect to find a cat.

But at the same time,
I know all too well that it is not.
The cheetah has a coalition,
The lion has a pride,
The feral cat has a colony.

And now, I, cat in heart and cat in mind,
Find myself missing those I barely knew,
Suffering solitude in life.
