My Black Cat

My Black Cat

A Poem by Rose


He has a dark but kind soul


And fur as black as coal.


He has emerald green eyes


And he watches with prying eyes,


Under his shadowy guise.

I love this. I have a black cat with emerald eyes and he looks at us just like you described. I will have to read it to him! Thank you for sharing this.

I love watching cats, but cats & I do not jive. I'm a dog person and I simply love getting a glimpse of catness thru a cat-lover's eyes. I love how this depiction has much darkness of spirit, as if a black cat is inherently spooky. I volunteered at animal shelters for 6 years & black animals are the last ones to be adopted. People don't see them, they say, cowering in the back of a cage. Potential adopters are drawn to the pets with light coloring or fancy markings. Personally, I love black animals. They're gorgeous & you've made your cat sound like you also feel she's gorgeous (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I am more a doggy fan, Rose, but I will concede that cats have their merits and they surely do have the most amazing eye colours of all the animal species. Truly beautiful. This is a fine description of your own cherished feline. Black fur and emerald eyes...a lovely combination. 💛

I have had two black male cats over the years, Archie and Sooty. Neither of them cuddly cats, however they were great hunters and spent much time in the garden. This little poem about your adorable black cat has brought some memories back. I am thankful about that.

You find such great words to use! I think that’s one of the reasons your writing is so good, because you use words that are so nice sounding, but not too complicated and your rhyming is on point! Poems don’t have to rhyme, but I love the ones that do!
