velvet kitten

Exuberant silky fur dresses the robust frame
enfolding his kitten soul
The pitter-pattering of his velvet feet behind me
leaping, bounding, slipping and sliding
playfully tapping my ankles as he goes
Thunderous blue eyes
beam from his wolf-face looking up at me
juxtaposed by his smol voice
“take care of me” he mews, I say “always”
Love with felines is always true
—  Silver by Me
I love my son
