A Tiny Me-ow

Thunderstruck, by lightning's flash
   Pitter-patter, as he made his dash
For shelter from the gathering storm
   A mere ten steps was he from his dorm

When a tiny me-ow froze him in his tracks
   Then the heavens opened; dare he go back
Yet one more me-ow softened his firm resolve
   At moments like this, character evolves

He swept the kitten up into his arms
   He, deluge-drenched; she, unharmed
Reached his dorm, for all the world a human puddle
   Kitty purring contentedly, wanting only to cuddle

His roommates teased him; he didn't care
   Each new me-ow a reward for taking a dare

Nice one Gershon. Just a hunch but I think you may have a softer side. Well written, enjoyed thoroughly! RT

A beautiful moment...I can feel that cuddle and the warm moment. Surely his little tongue is lapping at milk too. And I bet those other guys are melting a bit...perhaps.
