Life Lessons From Two Persian Cats...

Poem by Frank James Ryan Jr

Two Persian Cats on window sill,

Ostensibly staring at nothing.

Back to back for hours long;

What could they possibly see?

Mesmerized, frozen in moment,

Captured by slight of movement

back to back on window sill-

like bookends...on a shelve.


What could they possibly see?

Ahhh! Fatuous me...

How blatantly obvious

what we don't see

that these two Persians see.


We're too thankless to see,

What these cats easily-

Can savor and embrace

in their protected space:

The magnificence of Life!



Oh! If only Cats could speak.

My God, how embarrassed we'd be

When we heard what they really thought-

about you and me!
