The Cat Will Know

Rating: 5.0
Again the rain will fall
on the sweet pavements,
a light rain
like a breath or a footstep.
Again the breeze and the dawn
will blossom lightly
beneath your footstep
as you reenter.
Among flowers and sills
the cats will know it.

There is a similarity in treatment of the cat metaphore there as in the Neruda. This has a much more relaxed approach. Neruda's cat threatened to pounce, but here there is a feeling of the cat being at one with itself: serenity! Your use of the metaphor is astonishing and you have drawn attention to the individual to be at one with itself. In this sense it is as a continuation of the Neruda.
