Erudite Lessons From Cats

Siamese Cats perched on eaves,
Thai eye's coruscate like diamonds
[*Wichien-maat (วิเชียรมาศ) ],
just call them...'Moon Diamonds.*

Sans the slightest movement of vertebrae,
cyan eye's, poised, fixed,
ossified like stonework by Keiffer;
graceful, adroitly mischievous,
unless bristled to madly distemper,
for then perhaps a catty brush of Dali.

Creeping o'er and 'round their world
wherever 'THEY' decide it will be!
Wise, cold-shouldered
yet they sleep well at night
beneath Moons warm blanket of spotlight.

Mornings crack brings stretch and folly,
roaming free, leaping high, focussed
with those spangled occular almonds
spanning their vast perimeters,
ostensibly in defiance of gravities law...,
moon diamonds.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

*Wichien-maat (วิเชียรมาศ) , is the Thai word for 'Moon Diamond'

As the name indicates, the Siamese Cat is said to have hailed from the temples of the Kingdom of 'Siam', now known as Thailand. Over the past half century, this exotic breed of cat has become much sought after in many countries including the U.S.A, U.K., where owning a Siamese was and still is somewhat considered a symbol of afluence. In its native place, the Siamese cat is called a local Thai name which meant “moon diamond.” The Siamese cat possesses a dartingly sleek apearance. The parts of its body which are cool are usually noted by a markingly darker shade than the rest of their smooth to touch coating....Info Source/Wikopedia...Write-up by Frank J.Ryan, Jr.
