Night Stalker

Night Stalker

A Poem by Bailey C. Writing
"

I love cats. So I wrote a poem about a more mysterious one.

"
The small creature stalks through the grass
Silent as the eye of a storm, not a rustle to be heard
Quickly letting each house pass
Refusing to let it's nightly stroll be deferred

It comes to a stop at the base of a tree
It crouches down, ready to leap
It springs up into the air, flying free
Landing on a sturdy branch without even a peep

Glancing up, it's green eyes glint
It sits under the moon's bright glow
Giving the world below a strange tint
Luna continues smiling at the world below

The creature's sleek fur is barely visible
With fur as dark as death
It looks almost mythical
It's slender body rising with every slow breath

A beautiful stray of the night
The cat stares for hours at the moon
It sees me looking, but shows no fright
The cat and I sit attune

One of the most beautiful creatures to me
Is of the feline family
Like the one sitting in this tree
All cats deserve to have that strong feline vanity

I stand to leave, it's getting late
I whisper farewell to my little friend
Warm blankets for me await
The cat's gaze at the moon does not end

I wonder how long it will stay
Staring up at Luna's radiant glory
And as I am walking away
I decide that this cat will make a good story

Lovely story...I could see the cat and you sitting with it. I wonder what this would be like if written from the cat's perspective? Well done. In the second stanza I feel like you are telling us by repeating It ..... , that's where I think the cat's perspective would be most interesting :) Thank you for sharing. I enjoyed this write.

Althoguh I'm not really a 'cat' person I did enjoy reading your poem about them. Good structure and imagery, too.
