only on her terms
you can sense it in her eyes’
remote, half-wild flash
for when you stroke her she jumps
a sweet woods musing disturbed

    Love this write, Daver! A wonderful rendering of this Tabby, I'm especially enjoying the last line, "sweet woods musing disturbed". :) That's certainly an accurate interpretation to it's reaction to being stroked. Love, Mikki
