A Shadow In The Darkness
When Strange Noises Sound
I am sound asleep or at least I thought I was
Then there is that crashing sound
Am I dreaming ?
What could it be ?
I don't see it as part of my dream
My dream is different and then where did the noise come from ?
I have to wake up from my dream to see if I am dreaming ?
Sure enough it was my kitten climbing on my bureau and knocking things off one by one
Trying to get my attention and that she has in 5 seconds flat
She is full of adventure even while I sleep
Her curiosity is never ending and she has ambitious fever
I want some of that
I am sleeping the night away when I could be traveling on the greatest adventure with my kitten
No picture frame unturned
Knocking the phone to the floor as if she was going to make a call
What is she thinking NOW ?
I now know it is possible to learn while you sleep
I am her student and a poor one at that
I have failed to come even though she gave every attempt to show me adventure awaits and opportunity is knocking
I roll over and do what any cat owner would do
I cover my head and pretend I didn't hear her scratching at the mirror
Taking pictures off the mirror and her dancing the tango with my lamp shade
I open my eyes which look cross eyed and the instant urge to go pee carries me to a new direction
I stumble and almost trip on my own two feet
As I hold onto the wall and feel along it as if I was a mouse and cannot see where I am going
I have been over the same path thousands of times and why do I still need to second guess
What am I thinking there is going to be a foreign object in my way
Where could it come from ?
I hear the sound of my closet door opening and closing
Yes she has mastered the art of getting to any closet in the house with a few raps of a paw and her teeth
It was only yesterday I found her in such a quantry
She had the handle of a gift bag wrapped around her neck
It was a small gift bag with bingo dobbers in it
Was she going some place without me ?
Is she a bingo cat and the most talented cat I know ?
Should I change her name to Lucky ?
I helped her get free but she didn't seemed concerned
She seemed more displeased that I took it away
Was it only a coincidence or was she telling my wife to go play bingo
Does my kitten have a 6th sense or am I just tired and dislusional
I want to go back to sleep but while I am up I feel like writing a letter
But to whom and why?
Maybe to my kitten and ask her why she tourments me so
I could eat but it is kind of early and I would just be eating for the act of eating not the act of being hungry
My alarm has turned on with music playing
Sometime has passed since I first woke up about 2 hours ago
It is now 7:32 in the morning
Should I go back to bed
It is Sunday the day of rest
Unless your a kitten then it is Fun Sunday
Well I envy all you sound sleepers and I am going to try to assume the position
My dalring little kitten has left the room and maybe just maybe she is getting some shut eye
Talk soon now I am taking this window of opportunity to catch up on some needed sleep
