Kitty Paws

Kitty Paws


       Upon the lake
The kitty paws
       Betray the coming wind
Their silence take
       No time for pause 
In judgment of my friend
       But in the wake
Is found a cause
       To jibe the sea again
And sail for sake
       Of hidden awes
That justify the end.

      ~by deborah burch



*kitty paws are the ripples on the water that indicate there is wind about...a sight for sore eyes when sails are in a dulldrom! ;) db
