Cinnamon And Domino! - Poem by Frank Bana

Can you believe those two, the whole day
Sitting by the screen door window
Staring at the sunlit green
Waiting for a gopher
To come darting through the yard?

One white, one bright like caramel
Solemn side by side
Their tails almost touching,
Heads in a steady line.

DVD players, I-PODs whine
Televisions whispering
In corners of the room behind
Smoky jazz and barbeque

And still they do not turn their heads
As if in shy Memorial
For brave felines passed on

Slowly the day goes by.



(Memorial Day 2008, Sharon, Ma, USA)

    This one is lovely with its cosy atmoshere 'In corners of the room behind
    Smoky jazz and barbeque' and the warmth and original point of view to one Memorial day - (through the feline`s eyes) ! (Report) Reply
