She lays there, a serene goddess;
A smile of contentment on her lips.
On arm tucked delicately under her,
The other replacing a pillow
For beneath her beautiful head.
Her high cheek bones and sleek body
Pay tribute to her Egyptian ancestry.
I caress my sleeping beauty’s silky body.
She dreams and twitches in her sleep,
Now all movement stops.
She opens her big golden eyes,
Raises her head, and looks around.
Stretching elegantly she snuggles up close.
I stroke her soft fur as my cat
Begins to purr and drifts off to sleep.
