Overheard at Table 3: Poem of the Day - Feral Luna Watches Everything

Feral Luna Watches Everything

Feral Luna watches everything
as her babes climb all about her.
Golden-eyed, she peers through shadows,
discerning, recording
each footfall, every voice
of the humans who try to pet her.

A scruff of the ear,
a caress of the chin,
but, be mindful, human!
Do not try to pull her
onto your lap, she will
scratch with flurry and scurry
under the armoire, or
hide under the couch,

and from the safety of her
secret nook, she will crouch
and peer out,
discerning, recording,

Feral Luna watches everything.
