From tiny beginnings to oceans I discovered the world in words

All Hallows Cat   

Slow and silent

dark and sleek

leaving no footprints

no scent, no spraint

that night she stalked

no shadows cast

beneath the hazy moon.


Weaving onward

across the field

and into the hollow

beside the pool

she sat a while

there looking in

with no reflection seen.


She stared at the water

calm and still

the suddenly, deeply

down in it’s throat

a vortex whiled

and gathering in

leaves and rocks

and then herself

were thrashing about

into the darkness

leaving alone

an echoing cry

and the lowering

hazy moon.
