Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Written while watching kittens play.


by sandy montgomery

Helpless as a lamb she sleeps
All silken fur and curling tail
Innocence resting upon the sofa
Till softly, on padded feet,
Her sister stalks, all wolf,
To my sleeping sheep
Then pounce goes the wolf
The sheep becomes all
Sharpened claws and needle teeth
In mortal combat till
Lamb becomes victor
Then satisfied they resume
The business of being cats
They groom...they eat...they sleep
Like lambs upon the sofa
