The Flying Calico
She leaped off the top of the refrigerator
Through the air
Only to reach over to the portable washer
Where her food was positioned right there.
The resonating sound just startled me
So I assumed that
Something fell to the ground.
I never realized that she pounced
And abruptly stopped to grab a morsel to eat,
Only to be scolded
For something so dangerous indeed....
Could have hurt herself, especially her head.
Instead, a little wiggle of her hip
Accentuated by the patch of grey fur
On her right hind
Indicated that she was not hurt at all
And that Samii was just fine.
