Wordless Wednesday – Imagine

Tsunami - Imagine

Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy

When Tsunami was a young kitten,
One of his favorite pastimes was
Stalking imaginary prey in our kitchen!

I often wondered what ran through his mind
During these special playtimes.

Perhaps he envisioned a world such as this?

Imagine you are a wild lion –
The King Of The Jungle –
The Lion King Himself –
Living in the heart of the Serengeti.

You are sunning in a grassy woodland
When you spot him:

A lone gazelle,
Drinking at a nearby watering hole
Unaware that danger is lurking nearby –
Unaware of his role in the Circle Of Life.

Quietly, stealthily, you slink to the ground,
Belly flattened,
Nose to the wind,
Whiskers quivering in excitement,
As you crawl,
Inch by inch,
Paw by paw,

On flattened belly,
Through the cover of grass,
Towards your unwitting victim.

Pray, prey, pray!
A storm is on the loose.
A Tsunami is on the horizon!

James Mason aptly observed that:

Cats do not have to be shown how to have a good time,
For they are unfailing ingenious in that respect.

There are few things more pleasurable in life
Than watching a kitten at play!

    I totally agree with you! I LOVE your poem! You’ve truly captured a cat’s ‘kittiness’…or should I say ‘lion-ess’! Thanks for hosting.

    What an absolutely ADORABLE cat! Thanks for sharing such a wonderful photo of him!

  16. Oh how I use to chuckle when our cat would run around the house pretending someone or something was chasing her! I sometimes wonders if we had ghosts!

  17. Such a great photo! Sometimes I’ll hear my cat giving a few wild cries….when I check her out she’s usually killing one of my hairbands or something silly that she found laying around

  18. Thanks so much for the linky 🙂

    Hubby is back from his Mom’s in Texas. He was helping her out as her husband had just had an operation. Now that he’s back, and it’s not all on my shoulders…I have more energy and will get back to regular posting. Thanks for your kind comment earlier on my blog.

    My cats kinda freak me out when they stalk things that are not there (or that I just can’t see)…

    Cats are hilarious! Our kitty we had years ago would keep us entertained stalking something unbeknownst to us and she absolutely loved paper bags. The curiosity of cat is fun to watch.

    Thanks for hosting another week of #WW fun!

      Thanks Cathy – yes, I’ve enjoyed many past years of entertainment watching cats and paper bags – not so much any more in these days of green environment!
