tiny poem- the cat who wanted to fly

(these little lines have been kicking around in my head as part of something bigger, but Feanne's illustration perfectly set it off :) )


Holly the cat was a skilled acrobat


whose talent was walking the sky


But the crowd's adoration lacked stimulation


For Holly, she wanted to fly.


 


Not the flying trapeze of the Mayan Mongeese,


though they rode through the air with such elegant ease,


Or the heavenly hurl of Catapult Curl;


no, Holly wanted more, to grow wings and soar,


and she ached for the day she would fly.
