About the little tomtit the cat and my dog

the little tomtit fluttered luckless at leg length in front of our dog the neighbor cat crawled for the staggering duo stagnant at claw length I watched breathlessly how the tomtit and the cat flee at the same time the small tomtit lands safely in the tree chirps a summer song the calico cat rests atop a low pole I can hear him purr our brave dog lies down looks at me with a proud look with a weary sigh my soft snoring dog dreams of his heroic deeds and growls against ghosts I sit motionless and hear triple melodies of these life-artists @ Ellie Daphne
