What do you see # 85 – June 7th, 2021

For the visually challenged reader, the photo shows a small kitten looking inquisitively, from under a table.

I can see shadows in the distance
When will she come,
the one who is meant to be my mum?
My brothers and sisters have found their forever home
I will be good, I won’t pee in corners
I won’t scratch the furniture
I will sit on your lap when you need the company
I promise not to stray, to visit other homes
I will not bring in birds or mice to frighten you
I will be the very best version of me
If only you will come
Maybe tomorrow, yes, I think you will
Come and find me tomorrow…
