Favorite Quote:
"Happiness is not a destination, but a way of travel."

Orange Guardian follows
With slitted eyes dogging me,
Watching like a hawk.

A flame-hued warrior,
Protective like a father,
Maternal mother.

Trailing my footsteps
Watching, watching, watching me
Like an intense birdwatcher.

I go too quickly,
I wander too distantly,
A harsh call warns me.

But I don’t listen
To those pleading cries
I tear away- free.

From my strong shepherd,
My confused attendant,
The perplexed being.

Don’t you know you’re just
My cat? I’m not your kitten!
You’re just a kitty.

Many of you can probably relate to this poem- especially those with a cat that follows you everywhere.
