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 mad distemper,
a catty scene for Dali's brush.

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

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
