Felidae (Tanka)

Effortless grandeur
Amorous slinky padfoot
Graceful limbo walk
Ancient rhythms of sine waves
Felidae Familia

The beauty of the cat will always cause my breath to catch in my throat….

For Memoirsofadragon, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”.  This poem is written with an attempt to simulate his style and artistry.  While I don’t think I an match his prowess with poetry forms, I do like the results of this effort.  Thank you for always inspiring me, G!
