A Little Poem for my friend Watercolor Cat

Watercolor Cat, Watercolor Cat, You are the most wonderful Watercolor Cat I have ever could dream about, And I wonder, my friend Watercolor Cat, and admire you perplexed and mesmerized, Tell me, how you know and how you do that you stand up straight and mastered this dignifying posture, Like a masterpiece, And these yellow eyes, like sunflowers, while sitting on a such big stone, on a such long road When you are not a red cat, or white, and not even lost, but Just an easy touch of lilacs that comes with the sunrise and leaves at sunset on the shores of volga, My friend, Watercolor Cat, when I see you standing up like this with all your pride, sharp years, and flying tail, You suddenly are the most blue-yellow cat in the sky, like you swallowed the sun with your wondering eyes. Why do you wonder my dear friend, watercat, why do you wonder and look like you are waiting for something wonderful to happen. Tribute to Russian painter, Elena Verzilova, and her family, Moscow, Sept 2022

Dear Maria, I just adore the creative expression and whimsical imagery of your beautiful poem… I was swept up in the magical spirit of this precious piece. I especially loved; “like you swallowed the sun with your wondering eyes”. Your last two lines are a grand finale for a grand poem. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan
