watching sunlight



sunlight was a brightly
colored calico cat
we had when i
was little

i watched her birth
four kittens
i saw her clean them
and nudge them to their feeding stations

she looked at me
and blinked

i watched her raise them

she cleaned, fed,
played with,
batted, or purred them up
when they needed it
at the time they
needed it
(immediate
appropriate
response)

i grew up, myself
i worked with children
i worked with adults
i had two children of my own

i found that
sunlight’s
advice worked

    with a wink and a chessire cat like grin I wholeheartedly agree with this poem, in nature it comes down to nurture, it has worked somewhat successfully with that in mind. looks like there is a bit of sunlight in you and all you do. Thanks for your comments on my similarly titled poem, i hope to read more of your poetry peace, Bill
