Buddy Asleep



Buddy Asleep
Buddy Sleeping

For Buddy who is His Mommy’s Guard Cat

He shuts his eyes and dreams soft kitten dreams.

Nocturnal dozes and those daytime naps;

That slumbering look is not quite as it seems.


The land of Somnus does not hold him still.

One eye alert; one nostril still on guard;

Even his whiskers sense the world at will


And like his feral brothers in the past

He’sย  just as ever ready to defend

His home until that one breath be his last.
